Awery Aviation Software has seen a rapid rise in the number of transactions on its air cargo booking software as the industry continues its digital drive.
Over the last six months, the company has reported 400% increase in transactions on CargoBooking, its booking and quoting platform, and eMagic, which converts emails into different formats and languages.
The company said that over that time period the two software platforms have been processing more than 4,000 transactions per month.
“After the uncertainties of the last two years, air cargo stakeholders understand the urgent need to digitise in order to ensure they have resilient supply chains that can deliver, whatever crisis they are facing,” said Vitaly Similanets, chief executive, Awery, speaking yesterday at TIACA’s executive summit.
“As the industry seeks to digitise stakeholders, including airlines and GSA’s, should all be taking a more collaborative approach to data sharing to assist in accelerating transformation,” he added.
Similanets went on to stress that although progress with air cargo digitalisation had been significant, there needed to be greater stakeholder understanding as concerns over data sharing and security could create unnecessary bottlenecks.
A large number of Awery’s staff had been Ukraine based and over the past weeks the company has helped move the majority of its staff and their families to new offices and homes in Sofia, Bulgaria, and other European cities.
“A combination of forward planning and the fact that Awery is a cloud-based enterprise has meant it has been possible to maintain business continuity,” said Similanets.
“Awery is a shining example of the resilience and determination of the Ukrainian people to continue their lives and businesses in the face of such hostility and challenges.”
