Qatar Airways Cargo and software company WiseTech Global have launched a direct eBooking solution, building on the flight schedule and operational data exchange implemented last year. The eBooking connection between WiseTech’s CargoWise platform and Qatar Airways Cargo management system, CROAMIS, enables freight forwarders using CargoWise to choose their flight and confirm a booking in real-time, without having to leave the platform. Bookings made through the platform can also be modified.
Head of airline connectivity at WiseTech Global, Scott McCorquodale, said: “The air cargo industry has historically been very manually-based, which contributed to substantial inefficiencies. This has all changed in recent years, with many airlines now firmly prioritising their digital transformation projects. With the new eBooking connection now available to CargoWise users, forwarders are able to confirm their bookings without any input from airline staff – dramatically speeding up the process, and allowing forwarders to focus on providing value-added services to their customers.”
