Nov 26, 2012 (AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) --
India-based aviation software provider IBS Software said has entered into a contract with German carrier Lufthansa's Lufthansa Cargo AG unit for the implementation of the firm's iCargo solution.
According to IBS, the solution will manage the airlines' entire air cargo movement worldwide. IBS was selected from among 400 solution providers after an intense selection process that commenced 18 months ago.
The contract is one of the largest IT system deals by Lufthansa Group, IBS said. IBS said that its new generation iCargo system will replace a legacy Unisys based MOSAIK application which Lufthansa used for the past 30 years.
Once implemented, iCargo will have a user base of over 4,000 staff members and will interface seamlessly with a host of other system applications within the IT landscape of the airline.
IBS said that iCargo is an integrated solution that supports the requirements of airlines' freight business providing enhanced web-enabled features that optimize operations, enhance profitability and provide scalability.
The solution is meant to help manage the increasing volumes of cargo movement requirements of freighters, ground handling agents as well as airports.
