Middle East Airlines implements IBS’s cargo management solution
April 12, 2019: Beirut-based airline Middle East Airlines – Air Liban (MEA) has opted for IBS Software’s iCargo solution, a technologically advanced, proven, unified cargo management platform.
This web based cargo management IT platform supports the end-to-end requirements of airlines’ core freight business.
The Lebanon’s flag carrier has implemented the full suite of iCargo capabilities spanning cargo booking engine, capacity management, pricing, hub operations, warehouse management, ULD management and Cargo Revenue Accounting in a complete switch from the system they had been using.
This will help them to manage all their cargo business needs; from worldwide sales, with improved revenue and capacity management, handling terminal operations at their Beirut hub by upgrading to a more automated, streamlined process and technology - and to fully integrate the back-end billing, invoicing, accounting and interline processing with the core sales and operations function.
Adib Charif, head of Information Technology, MEA said: “We are extremely delighted to have moved to the iCargo platform, which means a great step towards better compliance, revenues and cost optimisation.”
“We are extremely proud that iCargo continues to assert itself as the most definitive cargo management solution in the market today, but we will continue to invest in the solution to enable our customers to excel in today’s digital world and to provide them a competitive edge” said Ashok Rajan, head Cargo & Logistics Solutions, IBS Software.
The iCargo platform has been on a growth trajectory ever since its market introduction in 2008 adding a diverse set of customers including full service cargo carriers, LCCs, regional carriers and cargo ground handling service providers across the globe.
