Air China Cargo Cuts Over To The Unisys Logistics Management System Based On Hosted Service From TravelSky









BLUE BELL, Pa., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that Air China Cargo, China's flagship airline, has successfully transitioned to the Unisys Logistics Management System (LMS) delivered by Unisys client TravelSky as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.

Air China Cargo is also using TravelSky's new booking and shipment management portal, China Cargo Sky Portal, that is based on the Unisys Cargo Portal Services software. As the two portals share the same core software, Unisys and TravelSky are able to interconnect them to offer clients access to more carriers and forwarders in a one stop air cargo booking site.

With the addition of Air China Cargo, Unisys logistics solutions are used by carriers that move about 30 percent of the world's air cargo.

TravelSky is the leading provider of information technology solutions for China's air travel and tourism industry. It operates the Unisys Logistics Management System (LMS), In-transit Service Manager (ISM) and Cargo Portal Services (CPS), which TravelSky offers to China's airlines via a SaaS model from a Unisys secure private cloud environment hosted in Beijing.  Air China is the first TravelSky client airline to sign up for the new SaaS cargo services. Unisys provided implementation, business process engineering and training services, and customized LMS to meet local rules and requirements for domestic cargo shipments within China. TravelSky managed the localization and integration of systems such as the Air China Cargo flight operation system and Chinese Customs.

"The software-as-a-service model enabled us to quickly transition to the Unisys cargo system in just six months," said Raymond So, vice president operation and services, Air China Cargo. "This helped minimize implementation costs and allowed us to start using the new logistics solutions sooner. The intuitive design of the system made it easy to train our more than 1,000 users. Operationally, the cutover took just two weeks as we decommissioned our old system and took new bookings on the new systems. The transition went very smoothly thanks to the support from TravelSky and Unisys."
