Classic approach includes contracts and deposits for non-CASS forwarders. Same complicated setup for potential new customers (eCommerce).
New features that could impact airfreight ecosystem are now available:
- Payments processing in seconds due to fintech development,
- Real-time Shipments/Quote’s data available through Carrier's API
Real time fast payments could be integrated to Airlines Operations process. Based on eAWB data and verified quotes billing could be done automatically and payment processed accordingly.
This process could benefit to several customers and open for Airlines new cargo sales opportunities.
PS: Build on Ruby-on-rails and MongoDB
Appreciate to get feed back on viability of the idea
