CharterSync co-founder Simon Watson has launched a new software that will provide cargo charter firms with operational charter information in a single platform.

Aerios will be a separate company from CharterSync and will join the CargoTech group, which invests in air cargo technology companies. 

The Aerios software will connect carriers, brokers and charter professionals on a single platform.

“By replacing disparate systems and manual processes with a single digital workflow, Aerios aims to address long-standing inefficiencies that have hampered the industry,” the company said in a press release.

The company explained that previously, information related to a charter operation could be scattered, slowing down the decision-making process.

Watson explained: “We created Aerios to fill a glaring gap in the air cargo charter industry. Our software does more than just digitalise existing operations; it transforms them, giving access to operational data and market intelligence in real-time.

“This means fewer errors, faster and more informed decisions, allowing our clients to scale their operation in a cost-efficient manner, whilst driving for increased revenue.”

The software will centralise communication, provide real-time data analysis to aid decision-making, and provide increased visibility on capacity and data.

Watson launched online charter flight booking portal CharterSync along with Ed Gillett back in 2019.

CharterSync digitally matches cargo loads to the most suitable aircraft in real time. It is also a member of the CargoTech Group.
