Dubai-based airline, flydubai, has announce the signing of a seven-year extension to its air cargo management contract with Mercator.
The renewal agreement reaffirms the continuation of the strategic partnership initiated in 2012, designed to provide flydubai with a next-generation technology platform that enables the end-to-end management of air cargo operations and cargo revenue accounting, while providing the airline with innovative and intelligent cargo management.
Flydubai has worked closely with Mercator and their proven solutions have supported its cargo operations since launching. The airline provides cargo services to 94 destinations across its flight network.
The contract renewal expands on the existing SkyChain and Rapid Cargo platform as flydubai collaborates with Mercator to upgrade to and 'leverage the transformational offerings of the Intelligent Cargo Ecosystem'.
This is an open API portfolio of air cargo and ground handling applications that provide an end-to-end view of cargo movements across the supply chain and identify the most efficient ways of delivering goods to their destination.
“Cargo is an integral element of our operations and our continued partnership with Mercator has been a key component in enabling us to achieve consistent growth by delivering the capabilities we need to provide innovative and digital cargo products and services,” said Mohamed Hassan, Vice President of flydubai Cargo.
“With the extension of our contract, we look forward to working closely with Mercator to further enhance the value we deliver to our customers.”
