Cargo iQ to launch smart data portal for members

Cargo iQ executive director, Ariaen Zimmerman

Cargo iQ is partnering with iRIX Software Engineering and Information Builders to further develop its Smart Data program.

The three-stage Smart Data project will generate a broader scope of measurements, more information on specific milestones and self-service member access to the group’s reporting platform, and Module One covering airport-to-airport data collection is underway and due for completion in the spring of 2017.

Swiss IT service provider iRIX will implement Module Two, an online portal that members can access to interrogate Cargo iQ data for customised reports on milestones covering individual routes, timeframes and performance of partners.

Full access to the portal will be launched in autumn of this year.

Cargo iQ executive director, Ariaen Zimmerman says: “The Smart Data project will enable members to look at the data in a lot more detail and analyse it more easily so that they can reallocate resources to the areas where it is most needed to improve their processes, and consequently, their quality.”

He adds: “We are providing them with enhanced milestone data transparency to drive innovation along the whole Door to Door airfreight supply chain, whilst supporting individual and industry quality and process improvement.”

The Smart Data program is part of a series of initiatives aimed at improving the value Cargo iQ delivers to members and the industry as a whole.

iRIX Software Engineering managing partner and chief executive officer, Thierry Bosshart says: “We are looking forward to a long and fruitful working relationship with Cargo iQ, and seeing in practice how our software supports them in bringing further quality to the air cargo industry.”
