EVA claims industry’s first PC-based air cargo system

by Canadian Shipper

Taiwanese carrier EVA Air says its air cargo customers are now reserving space, preparing documents and tracking shipments with the carrier’s new personal-computer-based air cargo system, Cargowing.

EVA claims shippers can simply load the Cargowing System on their own PCs, and enjoy the ease of managing shipping procedures with graphical user interface (GUI). The advantage to this, claims the airline, is that there is no need to memorize pages of specialized commands.

EVA says Cargowing provides shippers with access to all of the functions offered on the air freight industry’s widely available dumb-terminal shipping programs.

Cargowing can also be used to manage consignment weight and volume, in addition to unit load device (ULD). Both the shipper and consignee can use it to work with the carrier to troubleshoot any irregularity. The system is primarily aimed at streamlining the movement of air freight between shippers, air freight stations and forwarders.
