Aeroflot Cargo Airlines has announced a five-year deal with CHAMP Cargosystems which will see the airline migrate to the new generation Cargospot system. The new technology will deliver complete end-to-end control over the sale and management of cargo by integrating the processes of all the airline’s cargorelated business activities.

This comes at a time when Aeroflot Cargo is undergoing a fleet renewal programme, planning to increase its fleet to six MD-11Fs in 2009 and maximising belly cargo service.

The system migration will be managed by CHAMP to provide a seamless transition between the current and new applications, involving the extraction and transfer of data with minimal impact on the airline’s operation.

Alexey Sumchenko, Commercial Director of Aeroflot Cargo Airlines, said: “We have worked with CHAMP over the last 10 years and are confident that the migration to this advanced system will deliver huge benefits.

“Cargospot will enable us to efficiently manage our full network of multiple destinations, routes and connections. This includes operating seamlessly with our parent company Aeroflot, delivering goods on all their passenger flights to 100 destinations in 50 countries. We expect that the implementation of Cargospot, and the efficiencies it will bring, will deliver a 5 per cent increase in our load factor within the first year of operation.”
