Awery Aviation Software has partnered with IBS Software to give airlines access to its e-booking portal and drive digitisation of air cargo.

As a result of this partnership, Awery is now able to deliver its CargoBooking and eMagic software platforms to IBS’s iCargo customers.

The move is part of Awery’s ongoing strategy to drive digitisation across the sector with increased collaboration between all air cargo stakeholders.

“IBS shares Awery’s vision of open access to our products to encourage cooperation that will lead to a truly lasting transformation in the airfreight industry, which will benefit all stakeholders,” said Tristan Koch, chief commercial officer at Awery.

“IBS iCargo customers will now be able to use Awery’s CargoBooking and eMagic solutions and this is to the advantage of all interested parties.”

CargoBooking is an online booking portal that allows airlines and their GSAs to provide freight forwarders with real-time air cargo rate distribution and bookings between hundreds of airlines and forwarders.

eMagic can read different types of content including email, text, and image, converting them into instant air cargo quotes using standard data formats such as JSON and IATA ONE Record.

The information is carried through to bookings, payments, and track and trace services, enabling CargoBooking to provide an end-to-end fulfilment solution.

IBS’s iCargo platform is used by 30+ airlines including American Airlines, Etihad Cargo, IAG Cargo, and Korean Air.

iCargo supports end-to-end business functions such as cargo reservations, rating, manifesting, import & export operations, warehouse management, revenue accounting, air mail handling and revenue management of cargo carrying airlines and ground handlers.
