Click2ship, an instant all-inclusive price quote e-service launched by Air Menzies International division, AMI Express, in mid-2010 now represents 15 per cent of the division’s business after just six months of operation and is contributing to the 30 per cent of all AMI Express business now booked online, the company said. AMI said that 95 per cent of the click2ship business is new to AMI Express, made up mostly of traffic from freight forwarders. There has also been strong support from courier companies, and some migration from AMI’s mainstream airport2door cargo services as well. The profile of click2ship bookings – originally expected to be mostly documents weighing 0.5 kg or less – has also taken AMI Express by surprise, with 20 per cent of traffic exceeding 10kgs per shipment. AMI intends to replicate the click2ship product across all its international bases throughout the US, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, China and Europe. AMI Express general manager Patrick Walsh said he anticipates click2ship growing to become 25 per cent of the division’s total business by the end of 2011.
