More software, less hardware
Descartes Systems Group, a major player in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, has announced that EgyptAir Cargo is using the "Descartes Velocity Mail" solution to streamline air mail transportation across its growing international network.
By automating the entire mail shipment tracking process from route generation to account reconciliation, the cloud-based solution helps to simplify operational processes and improve efficiency for air carriers, ground handlers and postal authorities.
On the other hand, the 2002-founded freight subsidiary of EgyptAir Holding, said it does not plan to acquire any more converted freighters beyond the three A330-200P2Fs it is already committed to. The carrier says a downturn in the market means that the eight aircraft scheduled for conversion are on hold. (ah)
