Air Senegal and SmartKargo today announced a partnership that will provide a digital transformation that will usher in a new era for the airline’s cargo business. The west African-based airline will deploy the SmartKargo solution across all functional areas of its cargo business serving 19 destinations, including New York, Washington, and Paris from its hub at Blaise Diagne International Airport in Dakar, Senegal. Air Senegal is the flag carrier of the Republic of Senegal and the first African-based carrier to adopt the innovative SmartKargo technology.
The new platform will allow Air Senegal to digitally transform its Cargo business and successfully meet the future with robust Cargo management solution capabilities and advanced technologies such as real-time information, business intelligence, and machine learning. The solution will interface seamlessly with the airline's other systems and third-party providers via APIs -- for fast integration and deployment.
Enhanced capabilities include 100% paperless e-AWBs; ease of booking; modern and flexible technology; single screen data entries; user-configurable Business Intelligence (BI) and reporting; powerful pricing and rate making, and real-time capacity management. This means that Air Senegal will be able to deliver fast, highly-reliable, and highly-predictable air cargo shipments to support their growth.
