As the preferred solution in the Caribbean and Latin American markets, Forward offers customers e-Air Waybill (e-AWB) connectivity to over 90 airlines through the Worldwide Information Network (WIN)’s online platform.
Independent forwarders using Forward can now participate in e-AWB, save time, improve accuracy, avoid carrier manual processing fees, and enjoy real-time shipment visibility.
“When business demands high-volume messaging to successfully manage supply chain transactions, easy and complete integration is critical,” said Mariano Posbeyikian, Marketing & Implementation Manager, Forward.
“Developing interfaces allows us to host the necessary components for Forward to connect with external applications, granting information integrity.”
Daniel Tarditti, Managing Partner of Rush Cargo, said when shipping scientific samples for customers, there must be a high standard of care taken to ensure the samples arrive intact.
“Efficient sample delivery in the biopharmaceutical industry is of utmost importance,” he said.
“The track-and-trace feature of the WIN connectivity platform offers real-time visibility, allowing our customers to efficiently monitor time critical cargo, and ensuring it arrives safely and on time to its destination.”
“We are both a handler and a forwarder, meaning we often had to input data into the system over and over again, which was a waste of time and resources,” said Jose Neder, Cargo Operations Manager, Caribetrans, S.A.S.
“Since using the WIN interface, it has both simplified and sped up the process, resulting in savings in terms of costs and time, as well as allowing us to focus on other areas of the business.”
“Advanced logistics solution providers such as Forward are increasingly opting for our new breed of real-time web-service application programme interface (API)s rather than obsolete electronic data interchange (EDI) platforms for airline connectivity and shipment visibility,” said John DeBenedette, Managing Director, WIN.
“We are proud to have Forward as a partner to help their customers achieve greater efficiency while growing e-AWB adoption throughout Latin America.”
