Signs Pan Airport Logistics as Launch Customer
DUBAI, U.A.E., 29th April 2013: Calogi—the worldwide leader in online supply chain management solutions—has cemented an agreement with Pan Airport Logistics (PAL)—the largest operator of roller-bed-equipped vehicles linking various airports across the Middle East—for the provision of an e-commerce and operations solution which allows the online management of road feeder services between airline, handling agent and RFS operator. The new solution, c-Road, allows PAL to manage transportation of both originating and in-transit shipments electronically.
The module gives road feeder service (RFS) operators complete visibility of the shipments allocated to them through a standard interface with the ground handling system. With c-Road, operators can publish schedules, manage capacity and volume, produce load plans, and send booking lists to cargo terminal operators with access to several management information statistics. The solution also provides operators with comprehensive information on volumes handled by customer and origin or destination as well as payments and any discounts offered by the handling company.
"c-Road, the road feeder services module, is another critical feature that has been developed after listening to our customers." said Patrick Murray, Head of Calogi. "The Calogi portal prides itself on being a one-stop-shop to harness business opportunities for our subscribers and the agreement with Pan Airport Logistics is another step towards our vision of a fully integrated business environment for the air cargo supply chain."
"Central to the successful delivery of PAL’s services is an in-depth understanding of today’s aviation issues and an unwavering commitment to identify solutions that produce economic value," said Christian Berquier, General Manager of Pan Airport Logistics. "The Calogi RFS solution, c-Road, is a solution that will help move PAL to an integrated, paper-free, environment allowing us to conduct business seamlessly with our trading partners.
Calogi’s online cargo portal currently serves a user base of more than 700 companies and 1,700 discrete users, many of which rely on the Calogi business and IT teams to provide them with a cost-effective e-commerce solution.
