     Yesterday PayCargo pulled off a show stopper announcement at IATA World Cargo Symposium in London announcing that the financial service company is spreading its wings beyond North America into Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
     PayCargo also revealed that they will be expanding their product offering and will be providing payment solutions for air waybill charges in addition to the ancillary charges they do today.
     PayCargo brought in air cargo industry expert Mike White to make it official at the World Cargo Symposium in London.
     Mike, who is the senior advisor to the CEO, explained how air cargo payments have needed overhaul for some time and that a new of way of doing business with dynamic pricing also needs dynamic billing.
     The veteran air cargo expert explained how PayCargo can reduce cost, improve processing flows, reduce dock delays and improve revenue flows. “This is something very important to help ensure smooth movement of the goods across the world,” Mike declared.
     The financial payment platform company has recently expanded offices in London, Madrid, Dubai and Hong Kong. Further expansion is being planned as the company grows across the globe.
     Many have found, the way air waybill payments have been made in the last 40+ years in the CNS and IATA CASS platforms to be outdated and these platforms have not kept up with the needs of the industry.
     PayCargo was looked on by some as being a game changer and long overdue.
     PayCargo has seen dramatic growth in its seven-year history and now has grown to be the largest payment platform in the world in a very short period of time.
     The company’s CEO, Eduardo del Riego feels the PayCargo expansion across the globe will be part of the digital solution in the new age of air cargo and e-commerce.
     “Our partnerships play an important role in furthering our commitment to transforming the movement of goods and fostering increased efficiencies through PayCargo’s payment platform,” Mr. del Riego told me.
     PayCargo’s cloud-based payments network enables payers to quickly and securely pay air and ocean carriers, maritime ports, ground handlers, freight forwarders, and customs brokers, among others.
     PayCargo integrates with leading Transportation Management Systems (TMS), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Terminal Operating Systems (TMS) entities across various transport modes: Ocean, Air, Rail, and Trucking. Today, PayCargo’s network is the leading independent payment platform focused on expediting the movement of cargo in North America and is rapidly expanding in Europe and other geographies.
     Profitable since an early stage, PayCargo continues to invest in software updates, development, and enterprise-grade security to support this hyper-growth.      PayCargo’sinnovative new tools include advanced real-time customer reporting and invoicing, new workflow tools to streamline partial payments and reconciliation, advance payments, and automated refunds in any currency.
     Mike concluded that PayCargo is not a vendor but a partner in providing solutions and already working closely with companies to implement the benefits that over 40,000+ users are realizing utilizing the PayCargo solution today.

PayCargo Big Story At IATA WCS

Vineet Malhotra, Mukesh Mudholkar and Vivek Pandit

     Taking an idea turning it into reality and then bringing it out to the world and having it actually work has been uppermost on the mind of Amar More for some time now.
Amar More     Amar is CEO of Kale Logistics Solution, the Mumbai-based company that revolutionized the air cargo process for the legions of trucks, both large and small that call daily at Atlanta Airport in 2019 when it installed the Kale Exclusive Cargo Community System.
     Since Atlanta went into business with Kale, Amar has made, what we have observed the great thinkers and doers and dreamers often find the smartest move after a breakthrough:
     He seems in this wide world of sports and business trade shows to be everywhere at once.
     But sometimes comes an opportunity in this age of COVID where you pass yourself coming and going and need to confront a slight medical adjustment, which is exactly what happened last week to Amar who is spending this week during WCS 2022 getting over it with his family.
     But fear not, all will come right and things will be back to normal.
     Meantime as you might expect, this brilliant Kale Logistics is out front and pulling away from everybody else and, is well represented in London at IATA WCS.
     That matters because all of a sudden software companies with big ideas and bigger dreams seem to be coming out of the woodwork at trade shows everywhere.
     But let's take a tip from the tulips and look up at the sun.
     Kale is the proven answer to log jams in your transport life, whatever your address.
     If you don't believe all of this just ask Atlanta or better still if you are at London WCS, “get it on” Kale, situate in Booth # B03-1 where you can learn all about it from The three Amigos—Vineet Malhotra, (second from left), Mukesh Mudholkar (center) and Vivek Pandit (far right) pictured here talking it up at their booth at WCS London.

     What happens when an operations guy pivots from the airline to the emerging fast lane in high powered digital exchange?
     Here is Mike Oslansky this week in London at World Cargo Symposium. Mike after 33 years took the package at United Cargo and formed a consultancy business, MAWB Services, LLC. in 2020 specializing in air cargo ground handling and other related businesses.
     But a closer look at nearly three-and-half decades in the saddle for UA Cargo reveals that Mike moved up the ladder from serving as an account executive at United Cargo from April 1987 to Director, U.S. Cargo Operations.
     Mike was involved in many transformative projects at United including the launch of a new technology platform in 2013 (UC360), the integration of United and Continental Airlines Cargo in 2012 into a single IT platform as well as the launch of in 1999.
     This week in at WCS London Mike is representing Airblox.
     “We are getting a lot of positive feedback concerning the Airblox digital capacity exchange,” Mike said.
     “Thanks to all of the people who have already stopped by our booth.
     “But, I understand everyone’s schedule is busy and maybe a touch hectic but just know you can reach out to Airblox anytime it works for you.
     “This World Cargo Symposium (WCS) event is well attended by key industry experts from all around the world.
     “I was at the WCS in DUB last year, which was also great, but this year's event appears to have even more attendees.
     “It’s great to jump into and also just listen to the discussions which are very optimistic about the future,” Mike said.
     “Looking ahead, we know all of the geo-political challenges that exist as well as the continued but more manageable effects of the COVID pandemic.
     “The air cargo industry is rising up as we always do to address all the issues.
     “I feel everyone is very focused on air cargo’s future. And that future continues to zone in on a key tool, digitalization.
     “Whether it is the digitalization of bookings, shipment details/tracking, financial instruments or capacity exchanges, everyone is eager to learn all about it and especially how to execute digitalization for their own business.”
     With the development of changeover tools clearly the focus for years to come, it feels once again like air cargo is ramping up a future as different as palletized cargo was from from loose loads.
     Digitalization first-adopters like Airblox delivering new thinking and ideas are among us now as leaders of change.
     “It's time in air cargo for innovative thinking that will lift us all and propel us into the future,” Mike Oslansky said.
     Good to think that Mike is still bringing it to air cargo close to home in Chicago, Illinois.
