WIN expands e-booking platform
SEP 22, 2015: Technology specialist WIN is helping independent forwarders save on time and costs after expanding its e-booking system to connect them to 16 airlines. WIN already connects to over 90 airlines for electronic Air Waybill (e-AWB).
The carriers available for e-bookings include British Airways, Iberia, Etihad Airways, SAS, Singapore Airlines, Jet Airways, Swiss, American Airlines, Air France, Finnair, Korean Air, KLM, Lufthansa, United Airlines, Emirates, and Gulf Air.
The all-in-one tool includes the ability for customers to look up flight schedules, create and manage bookings in real-time, transmit AWB data, and receive full AWB tracking automatically.
“e-AWB shipments ideally should begin with electronic bookings containing the proper special handling codes,” said John DeBenedette, managing director, WIN.
“This is why WIN has added a multi-carrier e-booking feature. Over the next months, we expect to grow the number of carriers available via a single, standardized e-booking process to more than 50. Forwarders who work with carriers electronically work smarter, improve accuracy, encounter fewer shipment delays, save money and enjoy full shipment visibility,” he further added.
