Continental Airlines smoothes cargo operations with e-commerce hub

Continental Airlines Cargo has gone live on the Unisys-supported Cargo Portal Services (CPS) platform to improve its operations.

CPS is an electronic booking and shipment management service for the air cargo industry.

Continental’s participation in CPS will give the airline’s air cargo clients a convenient, web-based facility to manage bookings and track shipments through a neutral portal.

“Our customers want choice and convenience,” said Jack Boisen, vice-president of the Continental Airlines Cargo Division.

“CPS fills this need because of its rapid adoption by forwarders, its multi-carrier model, and its capability to handle virtually all types of cargo products.

“This development builds on our commitment to offer the most suitable e-commerce channel to each of our clients.”

CPS was designed in co-operation with major carriers and forwarders, and is operated by Unisys. It also serves the global cargo networks of American Airlines, Air Canada, Air France-KLM, Austrian Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Scandinavian Airlines and United Airlines.
