CHAMP and CONNECTA partner to improve eAWB penetration


CHAMP Forwarding Systems and CONNECTA have launched a strategic partnership to help CONNECTA’s small and medium sized freight forwarders speed up electronic air waybill (eAWB) penetration.

CHAMP Forwarding Systems, a subsidiary of CHAMP Cargosystems, says the partnership will help CONNECTA members participate in International Air Transport Association (IATA) eAWB and e-freight initiatives more easily. CONNECTA members will receive access to the eAWB network, Traxon CargoHUB, connected to over 100 airlines. CONNECTA members will also be able to upgrade their CHAMP Logitude software subscription.

CHAMP Forwarding Systems vice president of eCargo services, Nicholas Xenocostas says: “CONNECTA’s service offering and our Logitude platform are a perfect match: Not only will small and medium sized forwarding agents enhance their competitiveness, they will also reduce costs, time, and errors and contribute to IATA’s eAWB targets by easily adopting eAWBs without the need of expensive and time consuming IT installations.”

CONNECTA network manager, Sarah Bidmead says: “With Logitude, our members will benefit from an extremely easy to use cloud based platform that not only allows them to run their entire day-to-day forwarding operations, but also enables them to submit eAWB and take part in IATA’s global e-freight initiative without major financial or IT commitments.”
