Strong start for AMI’s on-line cargo portal

[ September 9, 2015   //   ]

The UK arm of airfreight and express wholesaler AMI has launched a new on-line Quote&Book portal, modelled on AMI’s Express click2ship model, launched in 2010. AMI approved agent customers enter shipment details to obtain immediate quotes and prices can then be filtered using AMI’s consolidation or direct AWB service, as well as by airport of departure, direct or deferred services.
Customers requiring additional value added services can also request these via the site – including a nationwide collection service, HAWB production, NES entries and security screening. Prices will appear as all-inclusive, but customers can also view a detailed break-down. Quotes can be printed, emailed and/or stored on the system for subsequent retrieval when the enquiry becomes a booking.
In its first phase release, Quote&Book caters for Airport-to-Airport export shipments, covering Airport-to-Door (DDU/DDP), is due for release later in 2015.
In its first four days of operation, the Quote&Book portal was visited by 926 AMI agent customers, who submitted 2,261 quote requests. By close of business on day four, these had already generated 358 bookings.
