Provider of cloud-based air cargo solutions to the global air cargo industry SmartKargo has joined IATA interest group Cargo iQ.

SmartKargo offers a suite of scalable applications including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), a booking portal, and its end-to-end e-commerce shipping solution for global airlines.

“Establishing consistent quality management standards requires transparency and collaboration among supply chain partners who bring a variety of perspectives to the conversation,” said Milind Tavshikar, chief executive at SmartKargo.  

“We joined Cargo iQ to bring our unique experience to this important interest group and look forward to contributing as well as being inspired by our industry colleagues.  

“Together, we can ensure that standards of quality management evolve steadily in this industry that is so important to the world.”  

Following exponential growth in global e-commerce sales, SmartKargo saw an opportunity for airlines to adopt end-to-end integrated logistics for e-commerce parcel shipments, from online transaction to delivery to the customer’s door.  

The software provider launched a customisable e-commerce solution that can be bolted on to existing air cargo management systems, enabling airlines to expand their markets and earn higher rates versus traditional cargo.  

Airlines in Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and Norway are among the early adopters and have significantly grown their cargo revenues by shipping e-commerce products on passenger aircraft.

“The SmartKargo team will bring a valuable perspective and important sector expertise to Cargo iQ’s ever-growing taskforce,” said Lothar Moehle, executive director, Cargo iQ.

“Diversity in specialisms among our members is key to ensuring our work brings benefits to the quality of the entire logistics chain.  

“In joining the Cargo iQ community, SmartKargo has shown its commitment to our shared vision to improve standardisation in the air cargo supply chain, in particular by assisting our industry and our members with their digitalisation strategies and implementations.”

Cargo iQ is an independent, cross-stakeholder organisation that aims to create and implement quality standards for the worldwide air cargo industry. It has more than 60 members worldwide, including airlines, forwarders, and ground handling agents.
