Cargo Flash & Kenya Airways celebrate 12 month’s of partnership

Kenya Airways Cargo is celebrating the one-year anniversary of their successful implementation of Cargo Flash Infotech’s next-generation ‘nGen’ Integrated Cargo Management System (ICMS). This new system replaced their divergent legacy systems with a single, highly scalable and secure nGen ICMS.

This combined system includes Cargo Reservation System (RES), Cargo Revenue Accounting (CRA) System, Cargo Handling and Warehouse Management, ULD Management Solution, and Target Planning System (TPS) along with Budgeting System & Customer Portal.

Moreover, Cargo Flash’s cloud-based SaaS solution has proven to be efficient and cost-effective for the airline, while streamlining operations and making cargo management more seamless. The system has enabled Kenya Airways Cargo to manage its entire cargo chain from a single platform further reducing the need for manual processes, and the risk of errors, and increasing the speed of data flow on the other hand.

This enables them to provide more responsive and dependable service to their customers. Furthermore, the system has improved visibility and control over Kenya Airways Cargo’s cargo operations.

“We are very pleased with the results since implementing the nGen ICMS last year,” Dick Murianki, Kenya Airways’ Cargo Director, said. “The nGen ICMS has transformed our cargo operations, making them faster, more efficient, and more reliable. We are proud to offer our customers a world-class service that is both secure and cost-effective,” he continues, “I am happy to announce that we are now ready to start the next big project with them, which will be the application of Cargo Flash’s e-Commerce solutions. This will assist us in tapping the e-Commerce market in the African region, thus creating a new revenue stream.”
