CHAMP Cargosystems Signs Cargolux Airlines for New Cargo Software

The new platform will enable the global all-cargo carrier to deliver better service to its customers.

March 31, 2014

Cargolux Airlines International S.A., one of the high-quality, global all-cargo carriers, will replace its customized legacy cargo management system with a new tailor-made core cargo system. This will be developed in line with the carrier’s requirements and rolled-out across their entire international network in an evolutionary manner in the coming years. The “next generation” cargo platform of Cargolux will be operated, maintained and evolved by CHAMP. The IT company will also provide customization, implementation, business process engineering and training services.

Cargolux will take a big leap forward in terms of business process support tools and event driven management by deploying the latest technology which is contained in the new underlying Open Cargo Platform of CHAMP on which the specific Cargolux version is built. The new platform fuses lowered operational costs with heightened productivity.

Multiple product enhancements
The new IT system will help Cargolux accelerate its e-Cargo initiatives. It will reportedly make eBookings easier, enhance allotment, capacity and rate management, and raise the cost-efficiency of operations and handling.

The new platform will also provide improved integration with Road Feeder Services (RFS) as well as enable Cargolux to manage shipments down to piece level whether for security, customs or operational traceability needs.

Although CHAMP also supplies Cargolux’s current Cargo IT platform it was not a foregone conclusion that Cargolux would opt for CHAMP’s new generation offering.

Following a thorough vendor selection process, CHAMP and the company’s offering convinced through its sole cargo focus, the company’s enormous knowledge in airfreight matters and its understanding of the Cargolux business model. Competitive operating costs of the proposed solution further contributed to the positive outcome.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
