Vitaly Similanets, CEO, Awery, tells delegates at TIACA’s Executive Summit to increase cooperation to accelerate air cargo digitization after reporting a 400 percent growth in transactions on the Awery Platform
Awery Aviation Software (Awery) has reported a 400 percent growth in transactions over the last six months with its CargoBooking and eMagic software processing over 4,000 transactions a month.
CargoBooking supports airlines and their General Sales Agents (GSAs) to deliver instant air cargo quoting and booking with Application Programming Interface (API) integration to freight forwarders.
eMagic converts emailed inquiries in different formats and languages into standard data formats, eliminating the need for manual processing.
“After the uncertainties of the last two years, air cargo stakeholders understand the urgent need to digitize in order to ensure they have resilient supply chains that can deliver whatever crisis they are facing,” said Vitaly Similanets, Chief Executive Officer, Awery, speaking at The International Air Cargo Association’s (TIACA) Executive Summit, San Francisco, USA.
“Our platform can provide the scalable, cost-effective solutions they need and our growth is a testament to that.
“As the industry seeks to digitize stakeholders, including airlines and GSA’s, should all be taking a more collaborative approach to data sharing to assist in accelerating transformation.”
Similanets went on to stress that although progress with air cargo digitalization had been significant, there needed to be greater stakeholder understanding as concerns over data sharing and security could create unnecessary bottlenecks.
Awery’s growth over the previous six months has been a testimony to its resilience planning as a large number of Awery’s staff had been Ukraine based.
Over the past weeks, Awery has helped move the majority of its staff and their families to new offices and homes in Sofia, Bulgaria, and other European cities.
“A combination of forward planning and the fact that Awery is a cloud-based enterprise has meant it has been possible to maintain business continuity,” said Similanets.
“Awery is a shining example of the resilience and determination of the Ukrainian people to continue their lives and businesses in the face of such hostility and challenges.”
