Air Senegal and SmartKargo today announced a partnership that will provide a digital transformation that will usher in a new era for the airline’s cargo business.
The west African-based airline will deploy the SmartKargo solution across all functional areas of its cargo business serving 19 destinations, including New York, Washington, and Paris from its hub at Blaise Diagne International Airport in Dakar, Senegal.
Air Senegal is the flag carrier of the Republic of Senegal and the first African-based carrier to adopt the innovative SmartKargo technology.
The new platform will allow Air Senegal to digitally transform its Cargo business and successfully meet the future with robust Cargo management solution capabilities and advanced technologies such as real-time information, business intelligence, and machine learning.
The solution will interface seamlessly with the airline’s other systems and third-party providers via APIs — for fast integration and deployment.
Mr. Ibrahima Kane, CEO at Air Senegal said: “The advanced SmartKargo platform will enable us to build and develop a new, modern and robust air cargo business.
“The fully digital solution is the best technology available and will propel Air Senegal forward by allowing us to grow our cargo business to its full potential.”
Mr. Sydney Silveira, Manager Cargo Development at Air Senegal said: “Our mission is to ensure that we build a successful Air Cargo Services Airline that will operate in the whole of Africa and a company that will grow to be listed amongst the top Cargo Preferred Airlines from Senegal to connect to the world.
“SmartKargo technology and leading-edge processes are being adopted by airlines of all sizes throughout the world.
“The platform provides a robust set of local and international features needed for the streamlined operation of a fully digital air cargo and logistics business”.
