Royal Jordanian inaugurated the e-freight system, in collaboration with CHAMP Cargosystems (CHAMP). The new system will enable cargo agents to conduct cargo bookings and create airway bills through system website.
e-freighting is one of the initiatives of IATA’s Simplifying the Business (StB) program launched a few years ago. It has become an industry-wide initiative involving carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers and customs authorities. It aims to take the paper out of air cargo and replace it with electronic data and messages.
VP Cargo Sales and Services Muath Majali said Royal Jordanian’s cargo sector is the second fundamental arm of the company. He stressed that RJ is eager to offer state-of-the-art services to its customers and agents in order to meet their demands and ease freighting services.
Majali said that in 2009, RJ started applying the best-in-class IT solution — Cargospot — to automate freight procedures, covering all aspects of air cargo sales, reservations, pricing, management information and cargo handling.
He also said that the e-freight system that RJ is implementing today is a comprehensive Internet-based application that allows RJ to safely and efficiently empower its freight customers to perform the most essential tasks for cargo booking and data capture.
