Mercators first customer of Swiss Worx
08 / 01 / 2009
SWISS WorldCargo, has officially gone live with ‘Swiss Worx’, a customised version of the end-to-end IT cargo management system Skychain, developed by Mercator, the Dubai-based business technology provider.
“The greatest challenge facing the air cargo industry today is the integrity of data across all interfaces in the management of complex supply chains for our customers,” said Swiss’ chief cargo officer, Oliver Evans. “With Swiss Worx, we have seized the opportunity to improve efficiency, raise quality and to streamline our processes for today’s needs. Moreover we will be ready for all future changes and enhancements as the industry adapts to new challenges and the necessity to provide ever increasing value to the end customers of airfreight.”
New generation cargo management systems are beginning to make an impression as more airlines commence their migration processes.
The systems will be key to the ongoing success of IATA’s flagship e-freight programme that aims to rapidly reduce the costs involved creating and processing paper documents.
