IBS Software inks multi-year iCargo contract with Middle East Airlines

India- based airline IT solutions specialist IBS Software (IBS) has inked a multi-year contract with Lebanon’s flag carrier Middle East Airlines (MEA) to implement its iCargo solution to manage the cargo movement of the airlines worldwide. 

IBS’ iCargo was selected for its unique capability to provide a single unified platform to manage all cargo business needs; from worldwide sales, commercial and capacity management to handling operations at their operational centre – the Beirut hub - and to fully integrated billing, invoicing, accounting and interline processing. The selection of IBS and iCargo is the culmination of an intense market scan and selection process, spanning over a year. 

The implementation of iCargo will help MEA to transform their cargo business through new sales and capacity management processes, smarter workflow based decision making, accelerated and fully digitised flow of information between sales, operations and accounting. It also allows a redesign of its business process by aligning to industry best practices. 

“IBS and iCargo was a natural choice for MEA due to its superior product capabilities, proven technology platform and a very good track record of successful implementations We are delighted and excited to join the iCargo community and are looking forward to a smooth migration to next-generation technology and innovative business practices. We are keen to work together with IBS for a mutually rewarding long-term partnership”, said Adib Charif, head of IT, Middle East Airlines.
