Cargo iQ grows presence in Asia as Malaysia-based MAB Kargo becomes latest to join

MAB Kargo has joined Cargo iQ to benefit from quality standards and collaboration

Geneva, Switzerland, Thursday 7th February 2019 – MAB Kargo, the main cargo division of Malaysia Aviation Group, is the latest organisation to become a member of Cargo iQ as it continues to expand across Asia.

By becoming a Cargo iQ member, MAB Kargo joins an international network of more than 80 airlines, forwarders, ground handlers, and IT companies.

“MAB Kargo joined Cargo iQ to improve tracking visibility from the point of booking to delivery for airlines and forwarders, to adhere to international quality standards, and to gain customer confidence in Malaysia Airlines as a preferred airline,” said Jagedeswaran Nadrajah, Head of Cargo Operations Transformation at MAB Kargo.

“Membership allows us to access operational gap analysis via Cargo iQ data, enables us to improve our customer services index, and adds value to our product offerings.

“It also enables reporting on end-to-end performance and in-depth analysis of customer requirements, which aligns with our focus on quality as we translate our vision to be a world-class cargo airline into a reality.”

MAB Kargo is based in Kuala Lumpur, and operates air cargo services to almost 100 destinations through scheduled freighter services and belly space capacity on its holding company’s aircraft, Malaysia Airlines.

“Cargo iQ is committed to improving and implementing quality standards in air cargo, through collaborating with our members around the world,” said Ariaen Zimmerman, Executive Director at Cargo iQ.

“Growing our international membership portfolio is an ongoing process, and welcoming new members like MAB Kargo is an exciting development for us as we continue to raise our profile in all regions to expand our global air cargo network.”

Cargo iQ has expanded its presence in Asia in recent months after announcing Japanese carrier ANA Cargo as a new member in October 2018.

In March of this year, the Cargo iQ team will be in Singapore for the Group’s Annual General Meeting and to conduct Cargo iQ Introductory Training.
