“Avianca is firmly committed to strengthening its cargo business, and that includes an intense digitalisation strategy,” Matthieu Petot, CEO of CargoAi, explained. “Avianca Cargo recently completed the implementation of our digital innovation partner, IBS Software’s unified air cargo management platform, iCargo.
