Maximiliano Pozaric, Head of Cargo, Aerolineas Argentinas, said: “We were looking for a system to help us better manage our cargo operations and provide our customers with traceability and transparency. We want to reduce our costs and maximize the yields available and improve our customer service and with CHAMP’s reservations, capacity management and proactive service level monitoring we have that.

“Most importantly, Cargospot is a solution that will support our growth. We face increasing demands to meet regulatory requirements and there is also an escalating need for paperless exchange (e-freight); Cargospot will seamlessly manage these new challenges.”
