Taiwan-based Starlux Airlines has deployed IBS Software’s iCargo platform to manage business and operational functions for its entire cargo business as it prepares to expand operations.
iCargo now manages all aspects of its cargo business including sales, airline operations, US customs, mail, ULDs, cashiering, claims, revenue accounting,
portal services, data warehousing and business intelligence modules.
Starlux said the iCargo management platform was implemented ahead of its launch in January 2020, which saw maiden flights to Macau, Penang and Da Nang with three A321neo aircraft.
