Mercator, a global provider of product-led solutions to the travel and transportation industry, today announces the launch of the Intelligent Cargo Ecosystem, the industry’s first open API platform for air cargo management and ground handling. As part of this launch, Mercator will be showcasing its new Warehouse App, a transformative digital solution which enables air cargo carriers to connect goods, people, data, and processes to transform their warehousing operations.
The Warehouse App is the first of a series of breakthrough applications which will be rolled out as part of Mercator’s Intelligent Cargo Ecosystem. The ecosystem is the next step in the evolution of Mercator’s air cargo product portfolio and encompasses a number of world leading air cargo management applications for Offer & Order Management, Logistics, Warehousing, Regulatory Compliance, Quality Management, Revenue Management and Analytics.
The new open architecture platform enables air cargo carriers to break away from the constraints of legacy systems by allowing handlers and operators to make process changes within the system quickly and achieve unrivalled flexibility. The app-based approach, inherent to the ecosystem, enables carriers and ground handlers to not only improve the efficiency of their operations, but also to introduce new services. For example, air cargo carriers will be able to move small consumer packages and perishable goods more effectively by having full visibility into the movements of the shipments, and by optimizing air cargo management processes to reduce delays and minimize the risk of disruption.
“The role of technology is rapidly shifting from being a driver of efficiency to an enabler of fundamental innovation and disruption in air cargo management and ground handling,” said Brendan McKittrick, Mercator’s Chief Technology Officer. “Mobile technology and open API platforms will revolutionize the industry, allowing carriers to get a real-time digital view of the entire air cargo supply chain. The technology can really transform the industry, providing much greater visibility, versatility, and above all, the ability to simplify complex and challenging processes”…Fuente: http://www.alta.aero/la/news-detail.php?newsId=671
