CHAMP Cargosystems has extended partnership with Global Logistics System Hong Kong (GLS Hong Kong) to provide a joint service designed to enable small and medium sized freight forwarders in Hong Kong to create and submit electronic air waybill (e-AWB) easily and efficiently.

As part of this partnership, GLS Hong Kong will be offering its multi-carrier cargo portal EzyCargo which got further enriched with extended functionality from CHAMP’s freight forwarding solution Logitude.

CHAMP Cargosystems vice president of global sales and marketing, Nicholas Xenocostas says: “We are pleased to be able to extend our successful partnership with GLS Hong Kong, further strengthening our relationship and joint activities. GLS Hong Kong is the key CCS provider in the region and EzyCargo has been extremely well positioned to serve the air cargo community.

“Partnered with Logitude, this advanced version of EzyCargo provides a full freight forwarding solution that is also capable to address the very specific Hong Kong related co-loading scenarios involving brokers.”

GLS Hong Kong chief executive officer, Terry Lo: “Our EzyCargo platform provides a Software as a Service offering that is easy and quick to set up. With the combined Logitude features, small and medium sized forwarders in Hong Kong in particular will benefit from easy and affordable access to an advanced solution to maximise efficiency and productivity.  Not only will they become more competitive, they will also be able to support IATA’s e-AWB initiative.”

CHAMP and GLS Hong Kong say that the full digitization in the air cargo industry can only happen if the many small and medium sized forwarders are also provided with suitable, affordable and easily implementable tools.
