IBS Software partnered with CargoAi in a move that will allow iCargo partner airlines to increase their market reach and scale up cargo revenue, a press release stated.
The two companies have been working together since July 2020 to integrate iCargo and CargoAI using a scalable application programming interface (API) architecture.
With this integration between platforms, iCargo partner airlines can simply turn on the switch for e-bookings from all over the world to reach their system.
“The process couldn’t be easier for airlines – only a few days of tests are required between the platforms to get on board with CargoAi and no expensive bespoke IT development or complex system integration projects is required to deliver this capability. All the work has been done ahead of time by the two partners,” the press release read.

“CargoAi and IBS Software have invested in creating platform-level integration to give our customers more choices on channels to digitally connect with their clients, faster time-to-market for such capabilities, and to do so with very little effort,” said Ashok Rajan, SVP & Head of Cargo & Logistics, IBS Software.
“We believe that innovation can be fast-tracked by partnering with companies like CargoAi bringing in new and improved ways of doing business like in sales and distribution, which is still very antiquated and legacy-based in the air cargo industry,” he added.
“The integration currently covers real-time e-booking and e-quoting, flight availability searches and shipment tracking. Lots of other possibilities exist, but this partnership is already showing just how essential synergies are in order to make digitalization accessible to all stakeholders in our industry, a goal that we share with IBS,” noted Matthieu Petot, CEO of CargoAi.
