Cargoflash Infotech, the Indian technology and business solutions provider, has partnered with the Luxembourg-based EDIfly to provide innovative messaging software for the aviation and logistics sectors.

From April 2021, Cargoflash has embedded the technology of EDIfly into its cloud-based, digital platform to enable free, encrypted messaging for its Air Cargo Management solutions.

With this partnership, Cargoflash can now enable all users of the advanced EDIfly technology to benefit from the free, web-based exchanges with stakeholders in ground handling and warehouse management, airline trucking, forwarding, logistics, cargo community systems, and even governments. Instant proof-of-delivery of messages is also granted through a digital signature.

Implementation is seamless for Cargoflash client as EDIfly relies on the same IATA addresses, already in use by the legacy aviation messaging providers, including SITA and ARINC.

The next-generation messaging has enhanced Cargoflash's ‘nGen’ end-to-end Air Cargo Management System. ‘nGen’ provides instant, integrated and seamless solutions to the air cargo industry for reservation, revenue management and accounting, D2D, and warehouse management. Through ‘nGen’, the company caters solutions to carriers, GHAs, GSSAs, and forwarders.

“Some clients on the comprehensive nGen management platform by Cargoflash work without a connection to legacy Type B providers while relying on the global IATA messaging standards and end-to-end encryption instead of using unsecured email for mission-critical communication,” says Ingo Roessler, Chief Commercial Officer, EDIfly.

"With the quick implementation and seamless integration, we aim to rapidly spread the disruptive concept that EDIfly can bring to the global aviation industry. Our software handles current and future messaging standards (Type B, Type X, EDIFACT) and connects with the partners without legacy circuits or fixed links. With EDIfly, the affiliates will experience a lower cost-base and improved data security compared to that of the legacy providers."

“As air cargo moves towards cloud-based computing for mission-critical applications across all areas, Cargoflash is thrilled to have EDIfly come on board for an advanced messaging system. Many of our airline clients, including Garuda Indonesia and Raya Airways, already enjoy the free and encrypted messaging technology provided by EDIfly," adds Gautam Mandal, Director-Products, Cargoflash. "With this association, we aim to reach out to all our existing as well as potential stakeholders, and effectively provide seamless solutions to the global Air Cargo market."
