Accenture has launched the new version of Air Cargo Operations software for better handling of cargo from origin through destination.
The solution enables efficient cargo movement and delivery by offering improved visibility into cargo discrepancies and better asset and warehouse management.
The latest Accenture Air Cargo Operations version 6.0 allows carriers to better manage discrepancy handling through status updates and reports that facilitate better tracking and closure of discrepancies. This enables carriers to ultimately reduce cargo discrepancy for increased profitability and better customer service, Accenture said.
Audit Airway Bills (AWB), another feature in the new version, provides real time tracking of transactions on the Airway Bill, which evidences the contract between the carrier and customer. This results in increased transparency and better customer communications.
Integrate Station Accounting features are integrated with cargo operations, providing information related to cargo charges and payments to streamline payment handling processes when station accounting is used.
Enhancements in Air Cargo Operation’s Warehouse Management, Unit Load Device (ULD) and Cargo Delivery modules enable more accurate asset management and help increase operational efficiencies. With this feature, users also gain real-time visibility into ULD stock inventory details.
Commenting on the benefits of the new software, Malcolm McNamara, global managing director of Accenture Freight and Logistics Software, said, “Using Accenture’s Air Cargo Operations software, our clients can gain real-time visibility into the entire shipment life cycle, enabling the proactive management and control tactics that ultimately help save time and costs.”
The new version of Accenture Cargo Operations can be implemented as part of Accenture Freight and Logistics Software Air Cargo Suite.
