Delta and Unisys Partner in Launch of New Cargo Portal Services
ATLANTA – Delta (NYSE: DAL) Cargo announced it is partnering with Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) to offer its Unisys Cargo Portal Services (CPS), a leading electronic booking and shipment management service for the air cargo industry. Delta Cargo’s participation in CPS will give its customers a free, Web-based tool to manage bookings through a neutral multi-carrier portal.
“Cargo Portal Services gives every Delta customer a simple way to book and manage their shipments online at no charge,” says Neel Shah, vice president - Delta Cargo. “Our Northwest customers have already overwhelmingly adopted the service, and we’re delighted to build on that success and give our customers what we believe are industry-leading levels of visibility, service and efficiency across our combined networks.”
Delta’s recent merger with Northwest will allow them to extend booking beyond the more than 65 percent of NWA customers currently using CPS for their global bookings.
Delta can now attract business from forwarders who already use CPS. New users can register for Delta and once approved, gain access to the full range of CPS services, which include regular space allocations, customs status, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) shipment authorization, and the printing of key documents.
“Delta Cargo and Unisys enjoy a longstanding relationship around air freight systems and services,” said Christopher Shawdon, vice president and partner, Logistics Solutions for Unisys. “We and the CPS community welcome Delta Cargo and their drive in promoting e-business automation and innovation in the air cargo industry"
