Champ and OAG IT cooperation
10 / 03 / 2009
CHAMP Cargosystems and Official Airline Guide (OAG) Cargo have announced their global cooperation for the provision of real-time rate and booking services. This alliance will deliver a direct interface between Champ’s Cargospot system and OAG’s Air Freight Rates (AFRA) application.
Carriers using Cargospot applications will now be able to distribute their rates directly to their forwarding clients via OAG’s AFRA in real-time via the web.
Mike Navin, managing director OAG Cargo Solutions, part of UBM Aviation, said: “The dynamics of our industry demand high-speed communications and data transfer between airlines, handlers and forwarders. Having an interface to link our two applications will speed up the communication process for critical real-time rate data and deliver added value to our customers.”
James Fernandez, vice-president sales and marketing, Champ Cargosystems, said: “Our clients can now have a direct interface with their customers, providing improved levels of service at lower cost. The real-time publication of tariffs is vital in today’s competitive environment and Cargospot users will now be able to respond even more quickly to any movements or changes in the market.”
