IBS Software and CargoAi partner to drive up customers’ air cargo revenues

By Rachelle Harry

IBS Software has announced a partnership with CargoAi which, it says, will enable its customers to extend their presence in new and existing markets and scale up their cargo revenues.

The companies have been workign together since July 2020 to integrate IBS Software’s iCargo and CargoAi platforms using a scalable application programming interface (API).

“With this API-based integration between platforms, iCargo airlines only have to turn on the switch for e-bookings from all over the world to reach their system,” a spokesperson for IBS Software said. “The process couldn’t be easier for airlines – only a few days of tests are required between the platforms to get on board with CargoAi and no expensive bespoke IT development or complex system integration projects is required to deliver this capability. The work has been done ahead of time by the two partners.”

Ashok Rajan, seniro vice president and head of cargo and logistics at IBS Software, commented: “Through this partnership, CargoAi and IBS Software have invested in creating platform-level integration to give our customers more choices on channels to digitally connect with their clients, faster time-to-market for such capabilities, and to do so with very little effort.

“We believe that innovation can be fast-tracked by partnering with companies like CargoAi bringing in new and improved ways of doing business like in sales and distribution, which is still very antiquated and legacy-based in the air cargo industry.”

Matthieu Petot, chief executive of CargoAi, added: “The integration currently covers real-time e-booking and e-quoting, flight availability searches and shipment tracking. Lots of other possibilities exist, but this partnership is already showing just how essential synergies are in order to make digitalisation accessible to all stakeholders in our industry — a goal that we share with IBS.”
