Direct data reduces forwarder burden

[ August 11, 2021   //   ]

Qatar Airways Cargo and software provider WiseTech Global are implementing a direct data connection between their global operating systems, CROAMIS and CargoWise, respectively. Direct data feeds will remove extensive data duplication and reduce the burden on forwarders. Air waybill data from the forwarder will be immediately available to the global Qatar Airways ground handling network. Qatar Airways’ chief officer cargo, Guillaume Halleux, said it would help eliminate intermediate data exchange points between freight forwarders and airline operating systems, while removing technical risk and reducing costs.
