Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 18 February 2011

Champ Cargosystems has been selected by TAP Portugal to help manage the airlines growth as the Portuguese flag carrier reported a 24% increase in cargo volumes for 2010.

TAP Cargos growth included a very significant increase in Brazilian imports and exports as cargo and mail transported reached 94,000  tonnes last year. The company is expecting further growth this year following an agreement signed with Champ Cargosystems on long-term use of the Cargospot suite of cargo management solutions.

The airline is adopting Cargospot Airline, Handling, Revenue Accounting, Business Intelligence and ULD Management modules in a move towards an integrated end-to-end portfolio which should bring immediate efficiencies while creating revenue opportunities and meeting global compliancy requirements.

TAP Cargo is also subscribing to Global Customs Gateway (GCG), which provides customs authorities with advance information on shipments. CargoWEB, Champs web booking, distribution and tracking solution, will also be provided as a hosted ASP (application service provider) service.

Our Cargospot portfolio is a key business enabler and our growing customer base ensures constant innovation in a cost-effective manner. TAP Cargo can be confident it has the IT tools needed to manage its business effectively, said James Fernandez, Champ Cargosystems VP Sales and Marketing. By incorporating Cargospot Revenue into its overall cargo management, TAP Cargo will benefit from expedited billing and improved cash flow, protecting it from delays, incorrect or over charging by other airlines or sales agents. Our business intelligence suite provides a seamless view across all areas of business performance for optimized decision support.

TAP Portugal has been in operation since 1945 and has a network of 64 destinations in 30 countries worldwide.
