Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that China Eastern is the latest Chinese airline to select the Unisys Logistics Management System (LMS) delivered by Unisys client TravelSky via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.
China Eastern will also use TravelSky's new booking and shipment management portal, China Cargo Sky Portal (CCSP), which is based on the Unisys Cargo Portal Services (CPS) software. As the two portals share the same core software, Unisys and TravelSky are able to interconnect them to offer clients access to more carriers and forwarders in a one-stop air cargo booking site. Implementation and cutover to LMS, CCSP and CPS are expected to be completed within six months of contract signature.
China Eastern, including its cargo subsidiary China Cargo Airlines - China's first all-cargo airline operating dedicated freight services -- is one of China's largest air cargo operators. It operates air freight services to 190 cities in 27 countries around the world. Full Story
