Cargo Revenue Manager
Fill Valuable Space to Capacity
Airlines often struggle to forecast available capacity for carrying cargo. As a result, this can have a chain reaction impact on operations and other areas because of inaccurate pricing. Without an automatic way to evaluate and price incoming cargo reservation requests, carriers must estimate everything manually without always factoring in all the variables. Not only is this process time-consuming and prone to human error, it can cost airlines business due to late responses.
Optimize Cargo Volume and Revenue
Cargo Revenue Manager automates many of the manual processes involved in capacity management and booking evaluation. Even more important, it can help airlines generate additional revenue from their cargo operations. By accurately forecasting capacity and improving spot pricing decision-making, Cargo Revenue Manager can dramatically improve carriers’ efficiency. Along the way, it can boost their profitability as well.
