Riege Supports Implementation of Cargo 2000 at Iberia Cargo

Riege Software International and the Spanish airline Iberia have set up transmission of shipment data as part of the IATA Cargo 2000 initiative. The airline selected DB Schenker and Riege as its pilot partners for the certification process. Both companies are already Cargo 2000-certified and active members of the Cargo 2000 initiative. In January 2012 Iberia Cargo announced that it has earned the Cargo 2000 certification.

Meerbusch, Germany – Since 2009 Riege Software International has offered a web-based platform based on its Transport Management System Scope® which enables transport chain participants to plan, monitor and improve the quality of shipments in line with the Cargo 2000 initiative of IATA (International Air Transport Association). Riege’s software solution is Cargo 2000-certified.

As a Cargo 2000 member, DB Schenker is using Riege’s software. Iberia Cargo had selected DB Schenker and Riege as its pilot partners for the certification process for its membership of Cargo 2000. In the pilot project all DB Schenker shipments from Madrid to destinations in Europe and North America were processed using Scope. Fernando Terol, General Manager at Iberia Cargo, was very satisfied with the results. “With DB Schenker and Riege Software International we have chosen two experienced Cargo 2000 members as our pilot partners. The results are excellent. Moreover, the performance of Riege’s software solution as well as their service and expertise have deeply impressed us.”

As a prerequisite for the certification Iberia Cargo developed an in-house IT platform meeting the CDMP Cargo 2000 regulations. The platform is necessary for exchanging information with other members of the IATA program. During this process, Iberia Cargo has worked closely together with Riege. Air freight carriers, air freight forwarders, handling agents and other logistics companies around the world participate in Cargo 2000. The aim of the initiative is to make the transport processes in the air freight industry more reliable and efficient through exact process analyses and harmonized quality standards.

Airlines and forwarders can achieve substantial improvements in their performance with Cargo 2000 at very low investment costs. On Riege’s Cargo 2000 platform, all processes are made available to all participants on a bundled basis. This enables faster comparison of all processes which can then be optimized on an ongoing basis. Alongside the reliable exchange of information Scope users can not only monitor all processes but also respond quickly as soon as any problems occur. The Cargo 2000 module can be connected to other Transport Management Systems through an interface. In addition to the official Cargo 2000 requirements, the Riege Software International solution enables all status requests in real time. Through the complete integration of shipment monitoring within the freight management software Scope can offer true added-value compared to other systems.
