China Eastern logistics management from Unisys/TravelSky

PRESS RELEASE

May 12, 2014: Unisys Corporation has announced that China Eastern is the latest Chinese airline to select the Unisys Logistics Management System (LMS) delivered by Unisys client TravelSky via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.

China Eastern will also use TravelSky's new booking and shipment management portal, China Cargo Sky Portal (CCSP), which is based on the Unisys Cargo Portal Services (CPS) software. As the two portals share the same core software, Unisys and TravelSky are able to interconnect them to offer clients access to more carriers and forwarders in a one-stop air cargo booking site. Implementation and cutover to LMS, CCSP and CPS are expected to be completed within six months of contract signature.

China Eastern, including its cargo subsidiary China Cargo Airlines - China's first all-cargo airline operating dedicated freight services -- is one of China's largest air cargo operators. It operates air freight services to 190 cities in 27 countries around the world.

TravelSky is the leading provider of information technology solutions for China's air travel and tourism industry. InfoSky, a wholly-owned division of TravelSky, operates the Unisys Logistics Management System (LMS), In-transit Service Manager (ISM) and Cargo Portal Services (CPS), which TravelSky offers to China's airlines as a shared service via a SaaS model hosted in Beijing. Air China has already gone live with the service.

Unisys will provide implementation and training services as well as the customized LMS to meet local rules and requirements for domestic cargo shipments within China. TravelSky will manage the localization and integration of systems such as the China Eastern cargo flight operation system and Chinese Customs.

"By TravelSky hosting the Unisys cargo solution here in China, we are able to offer airlines such as China Eastern the benefit of quick implementation enabled by a cloud solution, combined with the cost effectiveness of a shared service and our own local knowledge and expertise of China's travel industry," said Mr. LI Aiguo, General Manager of Infosky.

Olivier Houri, president, global transportation, Unisys, said: "We are delighted to see further take-up of Unisys air cargo solutions in the expanding, but highly competitive, Chinese aviation market. Our cloud-based environment enables fast implementation so that carriers like China Eastern can quickly benefit from our industry leading solution."

Unisys cloud-based cargo solutions are used by many of the world's leading cargo carriers who collaborate via the Unisys Cargo User Group (UCUG). This group of clients works closely with Unisys to discuss industry issues and to identify and prioritize enhancements and upgrades to the Unisys services. Unisys and UCUG members have worked with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for more than 20 years on initiatives such as e-Freight, Cargo 2000 and XML messaging, and with customs and security agencies to help carriers develop best practice and remain compliant with constantly-changing regulations.

Unisys has more than 45 years' experience providing advanced, mission-critical IT solutions to the aviation industry. With the addition of China Eastern and China Cargo Airlines, Unisys cargo solutions are used by carriers that move approximately 35 percent of the world's air freight.
