SmartKargo to power Volaris cargo operations


SmartKargo has taken over the power of cargo operations of Mexico City-based Volaris Airlines, Mexico’s second largest airline.

Volaris runs cargo services from 22 US markets throughout Mexico and Central America, and is SmartKargo’s Latin American customer. The company says the system ‘go live’ for Volaris was deployed in a record 27 days.

Volaris chief commercial officer, Holger Blankenstein says: “Our new air cargo system will possess state-of-the-art functionality for mobility with instant visibility of shipment information for our customers.

“At the same time, the system will provide Volaris with instant business intelligence to help us grow our business and serve customers better. The system is flexible and easily scalable, providing easy integration with future technologies.”

SmartKargo chief executive officer, Milind Tavshikar says the cloud-based solution is ideal for an airline such as Volaris who needed a quick implementation to capture the system’s many benefits, without a large investment in infrastructure.
