The SmartKargo shipping data platform has integrated EDIfly into its end-to-end e-commerce solution to support free encrypted messaging for airline customers.
The EDifly messaging platform is the signature tool of Innovative Software based in Luxembourg. Innovative Software recently joined the IATA EPIC platform and has now added logistics.cloud to support encrypted connectivity options through its low cost EDifly messaging technology based on open source components.
The platforms facilitate exchanges for a growing number of partners in the fields of ground handling and warehouse management, air trucking, transit, logistics, community freight systems and even certain governments.
Air Asia Cargo recently implemented the EDI messaging solution with its ground support partners in Indonesia. Low-cost carrier Air Asia is also an integrated logistics provider for cargo and e-commerce packages through its freight subsidiary Teleport in Southeast Asia and beyond.
“EDifly enables our airline customers like Air Asia to securely exchange operational messages with their logistics partners, which is essential for the execution of e-commerce transactions,” said Milind Tavshikar, Managing Director of SmartKargo.
“SmartKargo is delighted to provide the advanced benefits of EDifly SM messaging at no cost to customers of our e-commerce solution. “
The implementation of EDifly is straightforward for SmartKargo platform customers, as EDifly relies on the same addresses already used by legacy aeronautical messaging providers such as SITA, ARINC, Cargo-Community-Systems and others. .
EDifly SM also enhances these exchanges with instant proof of delivery via a digital signature. This means full process control for trading partners and secure exchange not available with other traditional means, including email.
“In addition to the significant reduction in costs compared to alternative messaging methods, EDifly provides Air Asia with the best data security for our messaging, and it is based on IATA standards,” said Javed Malik, COO of AirAsia group.
SmartKargo customers now benefit from full tracking without the volume pricing typically incurred. EDifly is the only solution today that can be GDPR and PCI / DSS compliant with certifiable end-to-end encryption, including in the customer’s application.
“EDifly uniquely enables seamless integration and self-administration capabilities,” said Ingo Röessler, Commercial Director at EDifly.
“In addition, messaging provides full transparency into message performance and delivery, and ensures order of delivery through end-to-end message sequencing. “
