Swiss WorldCargo launches new eBooking platform
Zurich, October 16, 2014 (STAT):-Swiss WorldCargo, the airfreight division of Swiss International Air Lines, launches its new “eBooking” tool. The new booking and data capturing platform, which is based on Unisys’s Cargo Portal Services, is accessible via the swissworldcargo.com website, and gives customers round-the-clock access to Swiss WorldCargo’s full range of products and services.
The new eBooking tool is a comprehensive web-based application through which Swiss WorldCargo can securely and efficiently enable its customers to perform the most essential cargo booking and data capturing tasks. With eBooking, cargo agents all over the world can now manage single or multiple bookings in one step, monitor a shipment’s confirmation status, capture MAWB and HAWB data and/or create templates for recurring bookings.
“At Swiss WorldCargo we constantly strive to maintain the best possible standards and processes worldwide, to ensure consistently high quality,” “Our endeavours here include continually finding ways to further enhance and refine our e-services, to both meet our industry’s standards and fulfil our customers’ needs.”
The new eBooking facility represents a significant advance in paperless cargo and e-freight terms. “As an early adopter of the eAWB, Swiss WorldCargo has long been a driving force towards a paperless air cargo world, and our new eBooking tool now closes the gap in the electronic cargo process chain, by enabling consignments with Swiss WorldCargo to be ‘e-freightable’ all the way.” said Urs Stulz, the company’s Vice President and Head of Central Services.
The new eBooking facility has been developed and implemented in collaboration with Unisys, the leading global IT provider in the transportation and other industries, and is based on their proven Cargo Portal Services: “eBooking marks a major milestone that has been achieved through the energies and the dedication of our own and our supplier’s teams, and thanks to the loyalty and the trust of our customers,” adds Angelo Toffanin, Swiss WorldCargo’s Regional Manager for Italy, Spain & Portugal and the leader of the eBooking project.
