Qantas, Australia’s national carrier and one of the world’s leading airlines, has implemented IBS’ Cargo Management Solution in its international air freight division, Qantas Freight. Through this deployment, the airline has successfully migrated to IBS’ iCargo platform. iCargo, a new generation end-to-end logistics solution, replaced a legacy system at the end May with a cut over involving cargo operations in thirteen countries.

The migration to iCargo is a key milestone for Qantas in its multi-million dollar Freight Futures business transformation programme, aimed at differentiating itself from other cargo carriers by delivering improved services to its customers. iCargo will be completely integrated across the Qantas Freight network when the terminal operation system is also cut over and will manage the entire freight movements of the carrier.

“To have a project of this size and complexity completed on time, within budget and with no interruption to our operations is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our business experts and IBS. While this was one of those rare cut-overs where everything went right we still have plenty of work to do with the scheduled migration to iCargo of our terminal operations planned for 2011,” said Qantas Freight executive manager, Stephen Cleary.
