PayCargo’s online payment solution is now directly integrated with Unisys’ cargo management system.

The two partners said the tie-up would “provide Unisys’ partner carriers with access to a single platform that includes modern payment services, with automated data flows that saves time and money”.

As reported, Delta Cargo has become the first Unisys carrier partner to offer its customers direct access to online payment processing through the solution.

The application programming interface (API) integration connects PayCargo directly into Unisys’ Digistics solutions including their cargo portal Solution, Digi-Portal.

“The integration between PayCargo and Unisys is now more important than ever, helping to transform the industry with digital solutions that add meaningful value, including benefits such as the expedited release of shipments, lower costs, improved cash management, increased transparency, reduced manual effort and streamlined operations,” said Lionel van der Walt, president and chief executive of Americas, PayCargo.

“Users on both sides of a transaction have visibility into billing, which enables them to address any issues immediately and make payments more efficiently.”

The integrated solution automates the payment creation for payers, including freight forwarders, importers and beneficial cargo owners, as well as providing real-time remittance validation for airlines to enable same-day release of cargo.

“Airlines do not need to access multiple systems, and the automated data flows save time and avoid costly human errors,” PayCargo added.
