LUXEMBOURG/HONG KONG – 17 March 2011 – Details were announced today of a five-year multi-million dollar deal between the HNA Group and CHAMP Cargosystems for its full suite of Cargo IT services to be deployed at two of the HNA Group’s airlines, Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express.
The sister airlines, which share common management, will become the first Hong Kong-based airlines to migrate completely to the integrated Cargospot suite including: Airline and Revenue Accounting. The Cargospot suite is now the most widely used cargo management system on the market providing carriers with complete end-to-end control over the sale, operation and management of cargo.
Hong Kong Airlines President, Yang Jian Hong, said: “We established our own cargo department just over four years ago and the demand for our services continues to grow in line with the economic growth of China. This strategic partnership with CHAMP Cargosystems will support our efforts to operate long-range freight routes to Europe and America.”
James Fernandez, VP Sales and Marketing CHAMP Cargosystems, said: “The new technology will deliver complete end-to-end control over the sale and management of cargo by integrating the processes of all Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express’s cargo-related business activities. The airlines will also benefit from continuous improvement as the large Cargospot community client base allows for cost-effective and proactive enhancements to be delivered within a robust release process.”
Cargospot Airline is functionally rich, highly modular and cost effective. Complementary modules include Business Intelligence, ULD Management, Revenue Accounting and e-Booking.
