Trivandrum: Technopark based IBS Software today announced that Turkish Cargo, one of the fastest growing air cargo carriers in the world with over 2,000 global users spread across a network spanning 284 destinations in 113 countries, has made the switch to its new generation air cargo management solution, iCargo.
The migration from its 20 years old in-house maintained IT platform to a technologically advanced, feature rich and fully integrated IT system demonstrates the strategic shift in the way Turkish Cargo plans to conduct its business in line with its evolving growth strategy.

The iCargo solution was selected for its unique capability to provide a single unified platform to manage all cargo business needs, from worldwide sales, commercial and capacity management to handling operations at their operational nerve centre – the Istanbul hub and to fully integrated billing, invoicing, accounting and interline processing.
In parallel, Turkish Cargo upgraded its handling operations by moving into a new modern mega terminal at Istanbul enabling the facility to be launched with iCargo which affords enhanced automated capabilities, handling facilities and smarter processes.
Dr. Temel Kotil, CEO, Turkish Airlines said, “COMIS, which has been actualized with contribution of different departments, has made history as being one of the biggest digital transitions of Turkish Airlines. COMIS is not only the transition of the main software used in our cargo operations, but is also an extensive project that will change all of our cargo processes.”
