Accenture Helps Air France KLM Martinair Cargo Roll Out Enhanced Air Cargo Solution

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has helped Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP
Cargo) roll out a new software solution across its global cargo network
as part of the company’s digital transformation journey.

The implementation of the Accenture Freight and Logistics Software
(AFLS) platform is designed to help Air France KLM Martinair Cargo ― the
dedicated air cargo business of the Air France KLM Group ― drive
customer excellence and quality in the quote-to-book process. The AFLS
solution integrates all the commercial functions (Booking, Offer,
Pricing, Rating, Capacity & Revenue Management, Flight Planning and
Airway Bill Control) across Air France and KLM.

AFLS is now the unified digital platform for AFKLMP Cargo bringing an
end-to-end commercial focus to revenue management process and extending
the value chain to the end customers. With the legacy systems
decommissioned and replaced by the AFLS integrated Commercial Suite, Air
France-KLM-Martinair Cargo IT system capabilities have been enhanced to
enable price integrity and consistency for the airline group’s customers
and partners. The AFLS Flight planning tool brings optimization focus
for the short-term capacity management window. The AWB Control tool
enables automatic and guided discrepancy resolution between the
commercial order and the operational shipment, thereby preventing
revenue leakage.

“We are excited to have the Accenture Freight and Logistics Software
live and in day-to-day use,” said Wijnand de Groot, Vice President
Customer Service at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo. “With Accenture’s
software, we are able to leverage the strength of our network to offer
better solutions to our customers. The solution has simplified and
transformed our system landscape, bringing tangible benefits on our
transformation journey. Next to improving customer service and sales by
our local offices, the software enables us to speed up innovation and
offer new digital solutions.”

“The implementation of AFLS at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo is a key
milestone in the carrier’s digital transformation journey,” said Ganesh
Vaideeswaran, managing director, Accenture Freight and Logistics
Software. “The simplification, transformation and integration of core
systems and processes should enable AFKLMP Cargo to improve
profitability and further enhance customer service. We look forward to a
long and enduring partnership with Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo and
will continue to leverage our market-leading innovation architecture and
capabilities to help them accelerate their digital transformation.”
