CHAMP Forwarding Systems joins forces with CONNECTA Airfreight Network to accelerate e-AWB adoption among small and medium size forwarders

Luxembourg, September 2015 – CHAMP Forwarding Systems S.A and CONNECTA have announced today their strategic partnership.  CONNECTA’s members will start benefitting from access to the web-based freight forwarding system Logitude, enabling them to manage quotes, shipments, bookings and consolidations more efficiently and cost-effectively. 

Commenting on the partnership, Sarah Bidmead, Network Manager at CONNECTA highlights, “This agreement is of significant value to CONNECTA – and more importantly – our members as we will be able to further expand our membership services to them.  With Logitude, our members will benefit from an extremely easy-to-use cloud-based platform that not only allows them to run their entire day-to-day forwarding operations, but also enables them to submit e-AWBs and take part in IATA’s global e-freight initiative without major financial or IT commitments.” 

CONNECTA members will get access to one of the largest e-AWB networks – Traxon cargoHUB which connects more than 100 airlines.  Furthermore, CONNECTA members will have the option to further upgrade their Logitude subscription to enable multiple user or multiple airline connectivity at specially discounted and highly competitive rates. 

Nicholas Xenocostas, VP, eCargo Services at CHAMP Forwarding Systems, adds: “We are greatly delighted about this agreement providing instant value to the air freight market and community.  CONNECTA’s service offering and our Logitude platform are a perfect match: Not only will small and medium sized forwarding agents enhance their competitiveness, they will also be able to reduce costs, time, and errors and contribute to IATA’s e-AWB targets by easily adopting e-AWBs without the need of expensive and time consuming IT installations.  It’s a clear win-win situation to all parties:  the small and medium sized forwarders around the world, CONNECTA - in growing and further developing their global forwarding collaboration portal – and all airlines connected to Traxon cargoHUB now and in future – a genuine effort to connect the entire air cargo community and support IATA’s e-freight initiative.”
