e-AWBs made easier for Connecta forwarders

CHAMP Forwarding Systems has signed a partnership agreement with UK-based Connecta Airfreight Network to accelerate electronic air waybill (e-AWB) adoption among small and medium size forwarders.
Connecta’s members will access the CHAMP Cargosystems subsidiary’s web-based freight forwarding system Logitude, enabling them to manage quotes, shipments, bookings and consolidations "more efficiently and cost-effectively".
Sarah Bidmead, network manager at Connecta, said: “This agreement is of significant value to Connecta – and more importantly our members as we will be able to further expand our membership services to them. 
“With Logitude, our members will benefit from an extremely easy-to-use cloud-based platform that not only allows them to run their entire day-to-day forwarding operations, but also enables them to submit e-AWBs and take part in IATA’s global e-freight initiative without major financial or IT commitments.”
Nicholas Xenocostas, VP of eCargo Services at CHAMP Forwarding Systems, said: “Connecta’s service offering and our Logitude platform are a perfect match: not only will small and medium sized forwarding agents enhance their competitiveness, they will also be able to reduce costs, time, and errors and contribute to IATA’s e-AWB targets by easily adopting e-AWBs without the need of expensive and time consuming IT installations.”
