Qatar Airways Cargo Launch New Automated Mail Management System
Qatar Airways Cargo recently announced the roll-out of their new automated mail management system that is now installed in over 50 stations across their global network. The air cargo carrier is the first in the industry to launch this major enhancement to their business.
Along with the new mail system Qatar Airways Cargo has also signed an agreement with Descartes, a leading logistics solutions-provider for their Descartes vMail solution that will be integrated into their own in-house cargo management information system, Cargo Reservations, Operations, Accounting and Management Information Systems (CROAMIS) for electronic data interchange messaging.
Chief Officer for Cargo at Qatar Airways, Guillaume Halleux said, “The roll-out of the automated mail management system across several destinations in our network will immensely benefit our customers and the flourishing e-commerce business. Our dedicated teams have been working hard for months to ensure the seamless integration and interface between the two data-heavy systems, Descartes vMail and our in-house CROAMIS system. This is certainly a game-changer in the industry as we move forward with our automation and digitalisation initiatives that not only enhance the customer experience but also demonstrate our contribution to the environment by implementing 100 per cent paperless operations.”
Descartes Vice President for Network Integration Strategy, Jos Nuijten “We are excited that Descartes vMail is helping Qatar Airways Cargo to fully automate mail management. As international e-commerce growth continues to increase demand for air mail transportation, our technology improves operational productivity and provides greater visibility essential to transforming the customer experience.”
Descartes vMail offers round the clock support at each of the cargo carrier’s stations. The system allows for complete automation of the airmail logistics chain from the origin, through to the hub and onto the final destination. The Airmail Unit at Hamad International Airport in Doha handles more than 100 tonnes of international airmail each day, vMail will significantly increase efficiency and provide unrivaled quality, end-to-end transparency, accuracy and accelerate the flow of airmail.
More stations in Qatar Airways Cargo will adopt the system over the coming months.
