MASkargo to Increase Real-Time Visibility of Shipments for Customers and Make Cargo Services Available to More Freight Forwarders Globally Using Unisys Cloud-based Digistics
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb. 6, 2019 /Medianet International-AsiaNet/--

-- Cloud-based logistics solutions Digi-IQ and Digi-Portal will help MASkargo 
provide customers complete visibility into shipment lifecycle and attract more 
cargo bookings globally 

Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) ( http://www.unisys.com/) today announced that 
MAB Kargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo)( http://www.maskargo.com/), the cargo division of 
Malaysia Airlines, will further enhance the digital transformation of its 
business using two secure cloud-based Unisys Digistics(TM) ( 
https://www.unisys.com/offerings/industry-solutions/transportation-industry-solutions/digistics-(logistics-solutions)) 
digital logistics solutions to make the airline's cargo services available to a 
wider global freight market and provide customers with industry leading 
visibility across the shipment lifecycle.

Under a five-year engagement signed in November 2018, MASkargo will join the 
Unisys Digi-Portal ( 
https://www.unisys.com/industries/commercial/transportation/Executive 
Brief/digi-portal-id-3116) e-commerce platform to promote its inventory to a 
wider global community of more than 25,000 buyers at forwarders, airlines, 
general sales agents and handlers across 140+ countries. MASkargo will also use 
Unisys Digi-IQ ( 
https://assets.unisys.com/Documents/Global/ExecutiveBrief/EX_180140_DigiIQVisibility.pdf)to 
track, report and measure shipments – meeting and exceeding the worldwide cargo 
industry standards set by IATA Cargo iQ ( https://www.cargoiq.org/). MASkargo 
has used the core Digistics cloud-based logistics management system to manage 
its domestic and international cargo services since 2016.

"Kuala Lumpur is a vital and growing cargo transit hub for Asia. Using Unisys 
Digi-Portal we will be able to reach an even wider market of forwarders and 
shippers with an easy-to-use and secure online booking tool. Digi-IQ will 
provide us and our customers with greater visibility of their supply chain via 
real-time continuous monitoring of shipments tracked against key milestones. 
This will also help us identify and forecast potential service disruptions and 
take proactive measures to address them in advance. This will help us to 
provide a better service and reliability for our customers," said Ibrahim 
Mohamed Salleh, CEO of MASkargo.

Digi-IQ automatically builds a route map for each shipment based on origin, 
destination, product, station operating hours, aircraft types and other 
factors. It then uses continuous monitoring in real time to track each shipment 
against key route map milestones with pre-alerts, advance notifications and 
early exception warnings based on configuration options, alerting operators to 
any actual or potential delays.

MASkargo is the largest cargo ground handling agent in Malaysia and handles 
more than 30 customer airlines at its Advanced Cargo Centre, processing more 
than 800,000 air waybills per year.

Andrew Whelan, vice president of Commercial Sector, Unisys Asia Pacific said: 
"These two Digistics software-as-a-service solutions will provide MASkargo with 
additional agility, ability to generate new revenues and visibility to quickly 
take advantage of market opportunities such as quickly offering promotions via 
Digi-Portal to optimise air cargo capacity. Using the Digi-IQ performance 
measurement system, advanced analytics will proactively identify early 
exception warnings so that MASkargo can take proactive measures to avoid 
service disruptions, to provide high service standards for its forwarder 
clients and the airlines it services as the Ground Handling Agent."
