Trivandrum, 28 May 2008: IBS Group announces the signing of a deal with Tokyo International Air Cargo Terminal Ltd (TIACT Ltd.) for implementation of the CTO (Cargo Terminal Operations) module of iCargo, IBS’ new-generation Cargo Management System. The IBS system will manage the new cargo terminal at Tokyo International Airport, also known as Haneda Airport. Haneda is ranked among the world's busiest passenger airports and will be the first neutral ground handler to use iCargo’s CTO module. The airport is currently undergoing a major expansion in terms of both capacity & technology and is scheduled to be fully functional by October 2010.

Built on the latest technology, IBS’ CTO system will provide Haneda with an integrated system that will optimize operations, enhance profitability and provide the airport the scalability to manage the increasing volumes of cargo as well as the growth of its business. It will efficiently manage the ground handling and warehousing of all cargo processed through the airport, and provide the tools to significantly improve service levels and productivity.

“We are absolutely delighted that TIACT has opted for IBS’ solution to handle the entire cargo terminal operations especially when the Airport is launching a new cargo terminal,” said VK Mathews, Chairman and CEO, IBS Group, on the occasion. “With Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) and All Nippon Airways (ANA), two of Japan’s leading carriers, having already placed their confidence in iCargo to manage their cargo businesses, this deal with TIACT highlights the growing acceptance of IBS’ new-generation cargo solutions in Japan, one of the principal markets for the global air cargo business. We see this as a major opportunity to provide added value to airports’ operations and establish a new standard for the efficient integration of airport cargo terminal operations with the cargo business of airlines,” he added.

On the occasion Mr. Terutake Kato, President and CEO, TIACT Ltd said “Haneda Airport has great potential to become the main portal to Japan in the near future. We chose IBS due to their extensive experience and know-how in the airline cargo industry. We foresee IBS’ system facilitating efficient processes and handling the complex nature of cargo terminal operations .The development of Haneda’s system will be a very big achievement for IBS. We look forward to develop this into a long-term engagement”, says.

iCargo’s CTO module will provide the Haneda airport a wide range of web-enabled features from reserving airway bills to manifesting the shipment on a flight on the export, to receipt of cargo from the airline on the import, to final delivery of the shipment to the consignee. The system provides for guidance and control of trucks, critical to managing influx of transport and supports radio communications through hand-held terminals, thereby improving productivity and service levels. The air cargo facilities provided by the new terminal will give cargo operators easy access and connectivity to central Tokyo. Operating on IBS’ system, TIACT will set new standards in operational efficiency, environmental design and service levels among airports.
