CHAMP Cargosystems and CargoAi have announced a collaboration in which the pair will connect their IT systems through APIs.

    The partners said this would give their respective users “new connections and capabilities for the future”. CHAMP said it offers increased visibility to CargoAi for its more than 100 airlines and GSAs customers, while CargoAi noted that it offers CHAMP clients a new sales channel. CargoAi also increases its capacity to make quotes, prices and bookings instantly available to freight forwarders.

    CHAMP Cargosystems’ VP commercial & customer engagement Nicholas Xenocostas (pictured above) commented: “Our clients and users are at the heart of this partnership. Creating value for them has always been our priority and that is why we have the widest range of suites of systems dedicated to air freight.

    “Being available on CargoAi, if they wish, is therefore an additional service that we can offer our clients.”

    Xenocostas explained that now was the time to “deliver innovation faster” to support and transform customers’ business processes, while bringing “more digitalisation and visibility” to the air freight industry.

    CargoAi’s CEO Matthieu Petot said: “Our goal remains the same: to make digitisation accessible to all industry players. This partnership with CHAMP, the leading air cargo systems provider, is a real boon for our customers. Because thanks to the joint work we have accomplished, our customers can grow their businesses by being connected to each other, without having to do anything.”
