Qatar Airways Cargo has relaunched its Mail product to include 100% electronic data interchange (EDI) functionality.

The cargo carrier said that EDI is rolled out at over 110 of its stations, with all stations equipped with handheld android scanners.

“Traditionally serving one customer per origin based on their unique post office identification (IMPC) code, the carrier’s Mail product can now cater to the requirements of targeted agents across the network,” said Qatar Airways Cargo.

“This allows Qatar Airways Cargo to accept mail shipments from multiple customers from the same origin, regardless of the IMPC code used.”

The carrier’s customers are also able to carry out real-time tracking of their consignments throughput the shipment process.

The technology in use enables Qatar Airways Cargo to share Response to Documents International Transport advice (RESDITs) for critical milestones during a mailbag’s journey. 

As part of the relaunch, the product offers a suite of customisable services designed for both traditional and hybrid postal modes – Express Mail, Priority Mail, Standard Mail and Empty Mail Receptacles.

The Mail product meets the regulatory standards set by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Universal Postal Union (UPU).
