Aeromexico Cargo will integrate Wiremind Cargo’s SKYPALLET in the second quarter of 2023 becoming the firm’s first Latin American-based user of the software.
The partners, who first began the process of agreeing a partnership prior to the Covid pandemic, officially signed their agreement on March 24.
Work has now begun to implement SKYPALLET which will be rolled out to relevant users in the coming months.
The IT enables sales staff to optimise flight capacities and minimize inventory wastage through more accurate quotes, improved flight plans, and more efficient build up instructions.
Alejandro Mendez, executive vice president at Aeromexico Cargo, said: “The air cargo industry is changing day by day, process by process.
“Companies need to incorporate technology and algorithms in their processes if they are to take advantage of opportunities in the market and succeed.
“SKYPALLET’s optimisation algorithms support our staff, enabling enhanced decision-making.
“This will lead to faster quotations and optimised belly capacities – two critical and repetitive processes that we identified in our integral assessment.
“Implementing SKYPALLET is a cornerstone on our journey towards becoming a more digital Aeromexico Cargo.
“We have set ourselves the target of implementing and fully deploying the software in our Mexico City Hub operations this year.”
Wiremind and Aeromexico Cargo said they aim to “intensify their partnership” in future by incorporating the airline’s feedback and continue finetuning SKYPALLET, as well as exploring other optimisation solutions.
Nathanaël de Tarade, chief executive of Wiremind Cargo, said: “Wiremind is exceptionally pleased to welcome Aeromexico Cargo as its first Latin America-based customer.
“Since late last year, Aeromexico Cargo’s team has been closely working together with us to test SKYPALLET’s functionalities against its internally developed business case.
“Now that the decision has officially been reached to proceed with SKYPALLET, Aeromexico Cargo users will undergo comprehensive training with Wiremind product experts to ensure that they fully understand the product’s extensive features and use cases.
“Up to now, this has been done remotely, so we look forward to visiting Aeromexico Cargo in person, this year, to observe how the product is being used, gather product feedback to include in our joint roadmap, and further share user best practices within the organisation.”
