PRC flag carrier Air China said that its Air China Cargo unit has transitioned to Pennsylvania USA-based IT firm Unisys Corp´s (NYSE: UIS) Unisys Logistics Management System delivered by Unisys client TravelSky as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.
Air China Cargo is also using TravelSky´s new booking and shipment management portal, China Cargo Sky Portal, that is based on the Unisys Cargo Portal Services software.
As the two portals share the same core software, Unisys and TravelSky are able to interconnect them to offer clients access to more carriers and forwarders in a one stop air cargo booking site.
With the addition of Air China Cargo, Unisys logistics solutions are used by carriers that move about 30% of the world´s air cargo.
TravelSky is the provider of information technology solutions for China´s air travel and tourism industry.
It operates the Unisys Logistics Management System, In-transit Service Manager and Cargo Portal Services, which TravelSky offers to China´s airlines via a SaaS model from a Unisys secure private cloud environment hosted in Beijing.
Air China is the first TravelSky client airline to sign up for the new SaaS cargo services, the firm said. Air China Cargo operates air freight services to 36 cities in 27 countries around the world.
