Lufthansa Cargo selects IBS’ next generation Cargo Management Solution
IBS Software has entered into a contract with Lufthansa Cargo AG, the airline cargo service provider in the Lufthansa Group, for the implementation of iCargo solution. The solution will manage the airlines’ entire air cargo movement worldwide. The contract is one of the largest IT system deals by Lufthansa Group. IBS’ new generation iCargo system will replace the legacy Unisys based MOSAIK application which Lufthansa used for the past 30 years. Once implemented, iCargo will have a user base of over 4,000 staff members and will interface seamlessly with a host of other system applications within the IT landscape of the airline. Lufthansa Systems will provide comprehensive consulting services during and after the implementation phase. The provider will also host the solution at its own data center in Kelsterbach near Frankfurt and will ensure compatibility with the remaining IT landscape of Lufthansa Cargo. IBM is in charge of the system integration. iCargo will manage the key business functions of the airline – from sales processes up to the cargo terminal operations functions. The real time availability of operational information through iCargo will help generate actionable intelligence which will vastly improve the overall utilization of assets and improve revenue generation and operational efficiencies.
