MEXICO CITY and CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (PRWEB) December 15, 2022
The Mexican all-cargo airline mas™, formerly known as MasAir, has today announced the renewal of its partnership with SmartKargo. Since its re-launch in 2018, as an independent all-cargo airline, mas has seen robust growth built upon the foundation of the advanced digitalization provided by the SmartKargo platform.
During this time, mas has increased their fleet from a single freighter to the seven modern aircraft that it operates today. The growing fleet is strategically configured to enhance the development of specific new markets by providing a mix of long haul, medium haul, regional and feeder capabilities. In addition, an expanded route network today serves three continents with scheduled cargo service—including destinations in Asia, Europe and Latin America.
The innovative SmartKargo solution interfaces seamlessly with mas systems via APIs, providing fast integrations and system transparency to partners and third-party providers. The enhanced capabilities of SmartKargo include paperless Airway Bills (e-AWBs), and ease of booking simplified pricing and rate-making capabilities; real-time capacity management; user-configurable business intelligence; reporting; integrated cargo revenue accounting and cargo airport operations.
Mr. Luis Sierra, CEO at mas said: "We have been so pleased with the growth that we have realized in partnership with SmartKargo. From the beginning, our business and IT teams have benefited from the full digitalization, tools and the international best-practice expertise transferred to us by SmartKargo. We are happy to continue the partnership as we expand markets, provide cutting-edge technology with scalable operations that help us serve our customers well."
Mr. Victor Flores, Admin & IT Director at mas said: "We initially chose SmartKargo to launch our business due to its comprehensive out-of-the-box functionality, global coverage, and rapid deployment capability. Today, as mas continues to grow, we are able to scale our business rapidly while providing a seamless state-of-the-art experience for our customers."
Olivier Houri, CRO at SmartKargo said: "It has been a pleasure working with the excellent business and IT teams at mas over the past 4 years and we look forward to supporting their continued growth and success."
