MASkargo to Increase Real-Time Visibility of Shipments for Customers and Make Cargo Services Available to More Freight Forwarders Globally Using Unisys Cloud-based Digistics™
Cloud-based logistics solutions Digi-IQ and Digi-Portal will help MASkargo provide customers complete visibility into shipment lifecycle and attract more cargo bookings globally
LONDON, February 6, 2019 – Unisys Corporation today announced that MAB Kargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo), the cargo division of Malaysia Airlines, will further enhance the digital transformation of its business using two secure, cloud-based Unisys Digistics™ digital logistics solutions to make the airline's cargo services available to a wider global freight market and provide customers with industry leading visibility across the shipment lifecycle.
Under a five-year engagement signed in November 2018, MASkargo will join the Unisys Digi-Portal e-commerce platform to promote its inventory to a wider global community of more than 25,000 buyers at forwarders, airlines, general sales agents and handlers across 140+ countries. MASkargo will also use Unisys Digi-IQ to track, report and measure shipments – meeting and exceeding the worldwide cargo industry standards set by IATA Cargo iQ. MASkargo has used the core Digistics cloud-based logistics management system to manage its domestic and international cargo services since 2016.
"Kuala Lumpur is a vital and growing cargo transit hub for Asia. Using Unisys Digi-Portal we will be able to reach an even wider market of forwarders and shippers with an easy-to-use and secure online booking tool. Digi-IQ will provide us and our customers with greater visibility of their supply chain via real-time continuous monitoring of shipments tracked against key milestones. This will also help us identify and forecast potential service disruptions and take proactive measures to address them in advance. This will help us to provide a better service and reliability for our customers," said Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh, CEO of MASkargo.
Digi-IQ automatically builds a route map for each shipment based on origin, destination, product, station operating hours, aircraft types and other factors. It then uses continuous monitoring in real time to track each shipment against key route map milestones with pre-alerts, advance notifications and early exception warnings based on configuration options, alerting operators to any actual or potential delays.
MASkargo is the largest cargo ground handling agent in Malaysia and handles more than 30 customer airlines at its Advanced Cargo Centre, processing more than 800,000 air waybills per year.
Dheeraj Kohli, vice president and global head of Travel and Transportation for Unisys said, "The advanced analytics in Digi-IQ will enable MASkargo to identify early exception warnings so that they can take proactive measures to avoid service disruptions, and provide high service standards for the airline's freight clients. Additionally, Digi-Portal will help MASkargo optimise air cargo capacity with the agility to quickly offer promotions that to take advantage of dynamic market opportunities."
