IFN's Business Alliance: AIRates FREE for IFN Members

International Freight Networks has formed alliances with several third parties; forwarder advertising platforms, cargo insurance and the like. The goal of these alliances is to add value to IFN membership.

Getting discounted insurance and adverts is certainly advantageous, but IFN's alliance with AIRates UK Ltd is especially exciting.

IFN members are being given access to a slick, state-of-art solution for all of the forwarding industry’s software challenges, completely FREE of charge. It adds great value to the IFN membership. This video summarises the positive impact it has had on SFN, one of IFN's sister networks, and its members. IFN's members will surely soon see the same rewards:

AIRates is a web system partnered with your local agent, that provides all costs for air shipments, with the click of your mouse. With AIRates and your IATA global partners, you can issue e-AWB’s with the major air carriers. Be connected with over 80 airlines. AIRates can quote your air shipments anywhere, even when you are on the move with the mobile app. All rates are online and all bookings come directly to your email.

One of AIRates' biggest assets is that it is fully customisable. You can choose your preferred agent, you can import and export bookings on your own data system and much more.

AIRates UK offer three main solutions:

  1. AIRates Pricing System provides instantaneous quotes, based on incoterms. No need to wait for email responses or consider international time difference.
  2. SmartAWB: for automatically issuing eAWB’s electronically and connecting to over 60 airlines. This is really cutting-edge, not everybody is doing this, but all forwarders will have to soon.
  3. eCargo Cloud: the complete ERP forwarding system. An advanced software for freight forwarders. This project started with Oracle in 2000. Since then AIRates UK have teamed up with IBM and Oracle to provide the best experience that Cloud technology has to offer.

IFN Managing Director, Kelly Bunyan, says; "As the saying goes... 'you snooze, you lose'. It’s important to me that I assist my members in staying one step ahead of their competition. In my opinion, approaching such an amazing new opportunity as AIRates with an open mind is the sign of a winner. I don't want my members to be the Kodak of the forwarding industry... Kodak blinked and their industry was taken over.

This system is revolutionary, and far ahead of the rest. I advise my members to embrace this change to stay ahead of the game. The fact that it's free of charge makes it a no-brainer."

Many IFN members are viewing the demo and signing up to find out more. Be part of the future and book your appointment with AIRates.
