The ATR 72-500 P2F is equipped with a Large Cargo Door allowing a load of up to seven LD3 unit load devices (ULDs), or five PBJ pallets.

Cebu Pacific Air has renewed its contract with QuantumID Technologies to ramp up SmartKargo for CEB Cargo. The partnership will continue the cloud-based real-time management of CEB’s air cargo business using the advanced SmartKargo operating system.

The Philippine low cost carrier (LCC) has utilised the Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to empower customers with real-time shipment information and advanced tools such as mobile apps that streamline customer experience via kiosks at the warehouse.

The mobile app has also allowed CEB Cargo to enable its clients to manage their shipments end-to-end, from booking to destination. In addition, SmartKargo has helped CEB manage and integrate its first dedicated cargo capacity into its fleet.

Cebu Pacific took delivery of the first of two ATR 72-500 P2F freighters it has on order in early August.

“The SmartKargo Cloud solution has equipped CEB Cargo with the advanced digital tools to run our business,” said Alex Reyes, Cebu Pacific vice president for Commercial. “We are very pleased to continue the partnership and look forward to sustained growth that SmartKargo has enabled.”

Enhanced capabilities of SmartKargo allowed CEB Cargo to provide paperless Airway Bills (e-AWBs), and ease of booking for CEB Cargo agents and customers by allowing single-screen data entries. In addition, the solution provides simplified pricing and rate-making capabilities, real-time capacity management, user-configurable business intelligence and reporting, and integrated Cargo Revenue accounting.

The platform supports streamlined participation with partners doing e-commerce—facilitating B2B or B2C door-to-door operations via mobile applications, as well as third party integration.

“We at SmartKargo look forward to continue providing CEB Cargo with solutions and tools to grow their business,” says Jay Shelat, executive vice president at QuantumID Technologies. “We are happy and grateful to be working with an outstanding team of cargo professionals and excellent leadership.”

Cebu Pacific was the first Asian carrier to adopt the SmartKargo Cloud platform in 2013.

The Cebu Pacific fleet comprises of 51 Airbus (two A321neo, one A320neo, 33 A320, eight A330, and seven A321ceo) and 21 ATR (eight ATR 72-500 and 13 ATR 72-600) aircraft.

The ATR aircraft are used by Cebgo for inter-island flights where jet operations are not possible. CEB boasts of one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world with an average fleet age of around five years.
