Air Asia India has selected the SmartKargo IT system to support its end-to-end cargo business processes.

Air Asia India’s, Madhukar Salla says the SmartKargo system has become an “industry standard in this part of the world” and a large number of users in the air cargo community already use the product and like the intuitive user interface.

He adds: “All local requirements like taxes are built-in and the product operates in a global environment too. The company’s ability to scale up on demand will be very useful as we add aircraft and extend our network.”

The Wingspan Group says it selected SmartKargo for its “comprehensive and highly configurable product” for carriers moving cargo using available belly space.

Wingspan Group chairman and managing director, Neeraj Rathe says: “Amongst all the air cargo solutions we have used in the past, SmartKargo has the highest number of configurable parameters built in.

“This reduces implementation time drastically in comparison to any other IT solution we have seen in this space. There is no software to install, no hardware to buy and we are in business quickly.”

SmartKargo executive vice president for sales and marketing, Jay Shelat says it is a good fit for Wingspan and Air Asia India who want to capture the system’s benefits without having to make a large upfront investment in infrastructure.

He adds: “SmartKargo is built upon the world’s leading global cloud infrastructure, Microsoft Azure. Because the Azure platform is continually evolving with emerging technology, the SmartKargo solution also updates with the platform, which means the solution is always cutting edge.”
