Unisys Corporation announced that it is working with TravelSky, a leading provider of information technology solutions for China’s air travel and tourism industry, to build the next generation of the Unisys Logistics Management System. The new version will be known as LMS Next Generation (LMS NG) and is expected to be available by the end of 2015.
LMS NG will provide a range of advanced features including additional mobile capabilities and proactive monitoring. The new version will incorporate an enhanced Java-based rules engine to help air cargo carriers more quickly respond to market opportunities because changes can be simply made to business process rules without the need to write code. LMS NG will be available via a Software-as-a-Service model, or as a licensed product.
LMS NG will include several additional interfaces to assist air cargo carriers to create a fully electronic supply chain with their customers and partners, as well as to view constantly updated capacity data by flight and product. Such insight will allow carriers greater visibility into their supply chain so that they can quickly adjust pricing to maximize utilisation of their available cargo capacity whilst driving profitability.
Christopher Shawdon, vice president Logistics Solutions for Unisys, said: “In the competitive air cargo industry, carriers are seeking ways to more quickly respond to market changes in order to drive maximum capacity utilisation. Our new pricing features will give air cargo carriers the same flexibility that passenger carriers get by being able to offer dynamic pricing based on date, service, flight or route.”
