Royal Jordanian has inaugurated an e-freight system, in collaboration with CHAMP Cargosystems, a global IT provider serving the air cargo industry. The new system will enable cargo agents to conduct cargo bookings and create airway bills through a system website. VP cargo sales and services, Muath Majali said Royal Jordanian ‘s cargo sector is the second fundamental arm of the company and 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.
The e-freight system connects directly with the electronic system that is applied at the Jordanian Customs Department and other concerned parties, thus easing and accelerating clearance of goods and delivery to the consignee. Majali said that the new system is bound to benefit the Jordan cargo community, including shippers, freight forwarders, customs authority, ground handling agents, customer airlines and Royal Jordanian.
