IBS Software to power MEA cargo movement


Airline IT solutions specialist IBS Software (IBS) has signed a multi-year contract with Lebanon’s flag carrier Middle East Airlines (MEA) to implement its iCargo solution to manage the worldwide cargo movement of the airline.

IBS’ software was selected for its capability to provide a single unified platform to manage all cargo business needs, from worldwide sales, commercial and capacity management to handling operations at their Beirut operational nerve centre.

The implementation of iCargo will help MEA to truly transform its cargo business through definition of new sales and capacity management processes, smarter workflow based decision making, accelerated and fully digitised flow of information between sales, operations and revenue accounting, says the software house.

iCargo is a  fully integrated, web based cargo management IT platform that supports the end-to-end requirements of airlines’ core freight business. The iCargo platform was introduced in 2008 with customers including full service cargo carriers, LCCs and regional carriers as well as cargo ground handling service providers.

“The dominance of iCargo in the air cargo management space is clearly the result of the consistent quality of engagements that we, as a team, have been able to deliver over the last few years,” says airline cargo services head IBS Software, Ashok Rajan. “We are delighted to further expand our footprint in the Middle East region and wholeheartedly welcome MEA to our growing list of customers. MEA is an experienced and prominent player in the Middle East aviation space and we are very excited to welcome them to our rapidly expanding customer community.”
