Unisys to Help Malaysia Airlines Expand Air Cargo Online Booking Options
KUALA LUMPUR, 24 September 2019/Medianet International-AsiaNet/--

Additional online channel to provide all types of customers with a choice of 
options to access Malaysia Airlines’ air cargo services with seamless experience

Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced it will help MAB Kargo Sdn Bhd 
(MASkargo) http://www.maskargo.com/, the cargo division of Malaysia Airlines, 
expand its range of cargo booking options with a new online booking service 
allowing all types of customers to conveniently access the airline's cargo 
services, anytime and anywhere, via the airline’s website.

The new service on the website provides an easy-to-use online option for 
customers who traditionally use offline methods to book cargo shipments, 
enabling them to conveniently and seamlessly access MASkargo's space inventory, 
purchase services and track deliveries 24x7. It augments MASkargo's current 
online distribution strategy, which is based on the Digi-Portal 
https://www.unisys.com/industries/commercial/transportation/Executive%20Brief/digi-portal-id-3116 
independent global marketplace, to give customers the choice of accessing 
inventory directly via the airline's website or via the marketplace, offering a 
high-quality omnichannel customer experience regardless of how the cargo 
services are accessed. Encouraging more customers to use online booking 
services is a key step in the airline's digital transformation.

Under the engagement signed in July 2019, Unisys will provide Digi-Connect  
https://assets.unisys.com/Documents/Microsites/Digistics/EX_180074_DigiConnect.pdf 
systems integration services to link the airline’s website to the core Unisys 
Digistics(TM) 
https://www.unisys.com/offerings/industry-solutions/transportation-industry-solutions/digistics-(logistics-solutions) 
 air cargo digital logistics management solution. This will enable real-time 
access to MASkargo's cargo capacity, rates and tracking via XML/API 
connectivity to ensure an omnichannel experience regardless of which online 
method is used. 

"Customers will now have the ability to easily access, purchase and track our 
cargo services from booking right through delivery. This new way of accessing 
our inventory through our website ensures an omnichannel experience, regardless 
of which method the customer uses," said Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh, CEO of 
MASkargo.

MASkargo is the largest cargo ground handling agent in Malaysia and handles 
more than 30 customer airlines at its Advanced Cargo Centre. The airline is 
using the Unisys Digistics cloud-based logistics management system to manage 
its domestic and international cargo services.

Rick Mayhew, vice president and general manager, Unisys Asia Pacific said, "We 
are delighted to work with MASkargo to provide a high-quality omnichannel 
experience for all types of cargo customers. Additionally, integrating the 
airline's website with the advanced analytics capabilities of our Digistics 
digital logistics solution will ensure that MASkargo is well-positioned to keep 
up with the increasing demands of their customers."
