IBS’ iCargo to manage Qantas freight movement


Tvm: Qantas, Australia’s national carrier and one of the world’s leading airlines, has implemented IBS’ Cargo Management Solution in its international air freight division, Qantas Freight. IBS’ new generation, state-of-the-art solution will manage the entire freight movements of one of the most prestigious carriers in the world with the completion of cargo terminal operations.

Through this deployment, the airline has successfully migrated its global cargo sales, reservations and capacity management functions to IBS’ iCargo platform. iCargo has replaced the legacy system which was being used by the airline, the transition of which involved operations in thirteen countries. Qantas operates nearly 750 flights a week, offering services to 86 international destinations in 40 countries. Twenty one global customers – airlines and airports – have signed up for IBS’ iCargo since its launch five years ago.

In a release, Stephen Cleary, Executive Manager, Qantas Freight said, “To have a project of this size and complexity completed on time, within budget and with no interruption to our operations is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our business experts and IBS.”

V K Mathews, Chairman & CEO, IBS Group said, “Having partnered with us during the building of the solution, Qantas’ choice of iCargo for Freight Futures – its business transformation program – is an endorsement of our joint vision to create the most definitive Cargo Management System for the air transport industry.”

iCargo is designed to meet the requirements of full freighter carriers, passenger & cargo combination carriers, ground handling agents and customs authorities. The product has an architecture that is modular and yet can be tailored to meet the scope and scale of the customer’s requirement, however high the volume of cargo. The fully web-based solution is built from the ground up on a new generation technology platform and is compliant with IATA initiatives such as Cargo 2000 and e-Freight. The migration to iCargo is a key milestone for Qantas in its multi-million dollar Freight Futures business transformation program, aimed at differentiating itself from other cargo carriers by delivering improved services to its customers.

Technopark based IBS Software had earlier received the International Award for Excellence, the ‘IT Systems Provider of the Year’ 2010 award for its iCargo solution.
