Singapore Airlines (SIA) appoints IBS Software to bring its global cargo operations onto a single integrated digital cargo platform. The aims is to improve operational insight across SIA’s entire network through the deployment of IBS Software’s iCargo SaaS-based cargo management solution.

The implementation will see SIA transitioning from its existing air cargo systems to iCargo to support its cargo business units, which include sales, import and export operations, air mail handling and revenue accounting.
IBS says this will serve to strengthen the cargo carrier’s ability to better manage cargo capacity, gain enhanced visibility of shipment yields and revenues, optimise network performance and seamlessly collaborate with partners’ systems, as well as drive efficiencies and improve operational resilience

“The Covid-19 pandemic has challenged the air cargo industry and greatly accelerated the need for change, especially in digitalisation,” says Chin Yau Seng, senior VP Cargo at Singapore Airlines. “We look forward to working closely with IBS Software to leverage the many strengths of iCargo to improve our digital capabilities and allow us to deliver a differentiated customer-centric quality of service, while staying compliant and up-to-date with global industry standards and initiatives.”

ICargo is an integrated solution that supports the end-to-end business functions such as cargo reservations, rating, manifesting, import & export operations, warehouse management, revenue accounting, air mail handling and revenue management of cargo-carrying airlines and ground handling service providers. iCargo follows air cargo industry best practices and is fully compliant with global industry standards and initiatives such as Cargo iQ, C-XML, OneRecord, e-AWB and e-Freight in general

Gautam Shekar, senior VP and regional head of Asia Pacific, IBS Software says: “Singapore Airlines is an iconic brand in the airline industry, synonymous with innovation. It gives us immense pleasure to welcome them to the iCargo user community during these turbulent times. We greatly value the trust that Singapore Airlines has placed with us and I’m looking forward to our teams jointly developing the next generation of air cargo ecosystem for their customers and partners.”

ICargo is deployed globally with some of the world’s leading airlines and ground handling service providers. IBS notes that over the past 24 months, demand for iCargo has gained significant momentum, including 22 ‘go live’ implementations and eight new customers.
