SAS Cargo will continue to offer its air freight services through Unisys’ Cargo Portal platform as both recently extended their partnership. Via Cargo Portal, SAS Cargo’s dynamic pricing, eBookings and tracking to its digital services will be instantly available to more than 6,000 customers worldwide in over 100 countries.
Signed in the third quarter, SAS Cargo’s services are now available to book via Unisys’ Cargo Portal platform, which is fully integrated with Unisys Cargo Core application, to ensure seamless freight management across all channels. Cargo Portal complements SAS Cargo’s existing systems to support increased online demand for its services, reach customers in new markets and generate higher volumes of self-service bookings.
“Our partnership with Unisys supports our dedication to digital-first services. Our objective is to drive the digital transformation of air cargo by making it easier to do business and deliver a first-class customer experience. Unisys helps us with this objective and the portal will increase SAS Cargo’s visibility to customers with booking needs. We are extremely excited about leveraging the Cargo Portal community, reaching new clients and growing our self-service booking quota,” says Leif Rasmussen, President and CEO at SAS Cargo.
Cargo Portal’s ‘Search Availability and Pricing’ capability gives SAS Cargo real-time visibility of its capacity and prices for specific flights that users are booking against – dynamic pricing optimises capacity usage and flight profitability by processing freight dimensions during booking.
“Unisys has supported SAS Cargo since 2003 and we look forward to expanding its digital capabilities with Cargo Portal to meet customer requirements quickly and easily,” commented Bill Brown, Vice President and General Manager, Unisys EMEA. “Cargo Portal provides the opportunity to address new revenue streams and provide a great user experience by simplifying the booking and freight management process.”
