MANILA, Philippines – Unisys Corporation has been named “International IT Systems Provider of the Year – Highly Acclaimed” at the 2020 STAT Times International Awards for excellence in air cargo presented at the Air Cargo India conference in Mumbai recently.
“This recognition highlights the critical role of technology to securely modernize today’s mostly manual and fragmented cargo distribution processes. Reducing shipment idle time is a critical step for the industry in order to improve the customer experience, optimize asset utilization, improve security and reduce unnecessary storage costs,” Andrew Whelan, Vice President Commercial and Financial Sector, Unisys Asia Pacific said.
Unisys’ air cargo solutions are available globally, including in the Philippines, to help airlines improve efficiency, increase service standards, enhance visibility of business and support developing new revenue opportunities. “Unisys is working closely with its current and potential clients in the air cargo industry, to use and implement emerging technologies such as IoT, mobility, and automation to replace largely manual processes with centralized data that is updated and actionable in real-time – creating a secured connected cargo supply chain,” Whelan added.
It is the second time Unisys has been recognized in these awards in the last three years, previously winning an award in 2018. Unisys was recognized for its holistic and integrated cargo logistics suite of software and services Digistics™, which allows cargo carriers to streamline freight management and improve their operational efficiencies. The award was determined by a panel of judges selected from industry stalwarts. The awards highlight leaders in the travel and transportation space that have excelled within the air cargo supply chain.
This most recent award follows a number of such recognitions for Digistics including the Payload Asia Customer Choice Award for IT Service Provider of the Year for Excellence in Air Cargo and multiple ICMG Enterprise and IT Architecture Excellence Awards.
