July 16, 2019: Accenture’s Freight and Logistics Software (AFLS) business group has developed AFLS Exchange, a new cloud-based connectivity and collaboration platform that enables air cargo carriers to integrate with their partner networks. Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP Cargo) has become the launch carrier to adopt the new industry platform.
AFLS Exchange gives carriers real-time visibility into their partner and joint venture networks. AFLS Exchange enables efficient, seamless, and secure transactions for key business functions, including route enquiry, capacity availability checks, and bookings. As a result, the solution provides customers with more product and route options and enables significantly faster response times by replacing the existing cumbersome largely manual processes.
Ganesh Vaideeswaran, managing director of AFLS said: “AFLS Exchange is designed to help carriers realise the full potential of their partnerships and drive revenue growth. We are proud of this unique industry solution that addresses several pain-points we have discovered in our broader work with leading cargo carriers. The platform is highly configurable, reliable and equipped with a plug-and-play connector to meet the needs of every carrier and their partner networks.”
AFLS Exchange integrates with a carrier’s existing booking system and allows simple onboarding, configuration, and offboarding of partners. The solution helps carriers reduce the effort and costs associated with manual input and processing.
“We are committed to leveraging innovative technology to transform our business, and AFLS Exchange will make integrating with our partner network simple and quick. We’re confident that AFLS Exchange will help us expand our network footprint and enable us to generate even greater value from our partnerships with other carriers,” said Marcel de Nooijer, EVP Air France KLM Cargo.
The platform incorporates key cloud security measures and complies with the highest international security standards.
“We are delighted and excited to partner with AFKLMP Cargo in their continued digital transformation journey with our innovative AFLS Exchange platform,” said Dirk-Jan Koops, managing director in Accenture and Air France KLM Martinair Cargo client account lead.
