AMI UK launches on-line cargo portal

The UK arm of AMI – the world’s largest trade-only airfreight and express wholesaler – has launched its new on-line Quote&Book portal. The new site is modelled on AMI’s Express click2ship model, launched in 2010. The site is only accessible by AMI approved agent customers, who need to enter just a few shipment details to obtain immediate quotes. Prices can then be fi ltered using AMI’s consolidation or direct AWB service, as well as by airport of departure, direct or deferred services.

by AMI approved agent customers, who need to enter just a few
shipment details to obtain immediate quotes. Prices can then be

as by airport of departure, direct or deferred services.

Customers requiring additional value added services can also
request these via the site – including a nationwide collection
service, HAWB production, NES entries and security screening.

Prices will appear as all-inclusive, but customers can also view
a detailed break-down. Quotes can be printed, emailed and/or
stored on the system for subsequent retrieval when the enquiry
becomes a booking.

In its fi rst phase release, Quote&Book caters for Airport-to-
Airport export shipments. Phase II, covering Airport-to-Door
(DDU/DDP), is under development and due for release later in
2015.

In its fi rst four days of operation, the Quote&Book portal was
visited by 926 AMI agent customers, who submitted 2261 quote
requests. By close of business on day four, these had already
generated 358 bookings.
