Thiruvananthapuram, May 28 (IANS) Technopark headquartered IBS Group has signed a deal with Tokyo International Air Cargo Terminal Ltd (TIACT) for implementation of the Cargo Terminal Operations (CTO) module of iCargo, a new-generation cargo management system. The IBS system will manage the new cargo terminal at Tokyo International Airport, also known as Haneda Airport that is ranked among the world’s busiest passenger airports.

The airport is currently undergoing a major expansion in terms of capacity and technology and is scheduled to be fully functional by October 2010.

V.K Mathews, chairman and CEO, IBS Group told reporters Wednesday that TIACT has opted for IBS’s solution to handle the entire cargo terminal operations, especially when the airport is launching a new cargo terminal.

“With Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) and All Nippon Airways (ANA), two of Japan’s leading carriers, having already placed their confidence in iCargo to manage their cargo business, this deal with TIACT highlights the growing acceptance of IBS’ new-generation cargo solutions in Japan,” said Mathews.

Built on the latest technology, IBS’ CTO system will provide Haneda with an integrated system that will optimize operations, enhance profitability and manage ground handling and warehousing of all cargo processed through the airport.

Terutake Kato, president and CEO TIACT Ltd, said they chose IBS due to their experience and know-how in the airline cargo industry.

“We foresee IBS’ system facilitating efficient processes and handling the complex nature of cargo terminal operations. The development of Haneda’s system will be a very big achievement for IBS. We look forward to developing this into a long-term engagement,” said Kato.

The IBS Group (IBS) is a leading global provider of new-generation IT solutions to the travel, transportation and logistics industry.

IBS has business operations in the United States, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, supported through 15 global business centres.
