Of Air Cargo Rates, Carriers, Shippers & Computers Yesterday - Today - Tomorrow
THE AUTOMATION OF DIRECT and indirect air carrier operations is essential for growth and for carriers to maintain competitiveness in a deregulated transportation environment.
The automation of commercial shippers' traffic operations is necessary to dramatically reduce the overall cost for transportation of goods while improving operational efficiency and effectiveness.
The matter of computerization of transportation operations should be placed on today's agenda if companies involved in transportation are to compete and maximize profits in the 1990's.
The traffic manager without automation, is an obsolete traffic manager.
