AirAsia picks Unisys cloud-based logistics management system

Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) said that AirAsia has gone over to the cloud-based Unisys Logistics Management System (LMS) to manage its domestic and international cargo services across its network of affiliates.

AirAsia Cargo is the award-winning cargo division of AirAsia. Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, its extensive flight network covers more than 100 destinations across 20 countries in Asia and Australia.

In accordance with the contract which will run for a minimum term of three-and-a-half-years after cutover, Unisys replaced the legacy system with the cloud-based LMS and it is now providing the core cargo system capabilities for AirAsia Cargo and its affiliate companies on a per-air waybill basis, saving the carrier capital investment. The migration from the carrier´s previous system took less than six months and went live in October 2014 to support AirAsia´s growing cargo business2.

The use of this cloud approach means that all AirAsia´s affiliates will benefit from centralized information management and visibility as well as common processes. As the Unisys system is browser-based, authorized users can access it from many devices including personal computers, tablets and other mobile devices.

Unisys is a global information technology company that works with many of the world´s largest companies and government organizations to solve their most pressing IT and business challenges.

AirAsia, within 14 years of operations, has carried over 300 million guests and grown its fleet from two aircraft to over 170.
