Delta Cargo partners with PayCargo, Unisys for digital solutions
Delta Cargo partners with online payment platform PayCargo and Unisys to offer customers an additional option to pay for their shipments’ destination charges. The new service for cargo shipments that originated internationally and delivered throughout the U.S. will be available from July 10.
PayCargo’s secure and easy-to-use system has cost benefits directly for Delta Cargo’s customers as it automates data flows, eliminates the need to send paper checks and enables same-day release of cargo. To use the system, customers must first register via the PayCargo website.
Customers will then receive updated charges information and efficiently process payments due at the destination. Once payment is made, Delta Cargo is notified in real-time to process the shipment and expedite shipment release.
“Delta Cargo is focused on making it easy to do business with us and our new collaboration with PayCargo and Unisys does just that,” said Shawn Cole, vice president - Delta Cargo. “As we strive to become the airline of choice for our customers, we know that offering secure payment options is one way we can achieve this.”
Lionel van der Walt,?president and chief executive officer of the Americas,?PayCargo said: “PayCargo is honoured to partner with a prestigious carrier such as Delta Air Lines. This collaboration, made possible through our integration with Unisys, will facilitate significant cost and operational efficiencies by enabling staff to expedite the release of cargo without the need for accessing multiple systems, and automates data flows to save time and avoid costly human errors."
Unisys is an innovative provider of digital solutions for the air cargo industry. The integrated solution that Unisys offers with PayCargo will automate the payment process for improved visibility and streamlined operations.
“By leading the integration with PayCargo, Unisys was instrumental in facilitating additional payment options to provide the speed and flexibility to seamlessly process transactions across platforms,” said Curtis Schuler, Unisys vice president - client management, Americas. “Our long-term relationship and in depth understanding of Delta’s operations, along with PayCargo’s expertise in payments systems, allowed the joint team to deliver real benefits within five months.”
