SkyTeam Cargo upgrades tracking tool

The SkyTeam Cargo alliance, which consists of 12 different carriers, has launched an upgraded version of its online track and trace tool whereby customers can track their shipments across the combined network by entering the airway bill number on the website's home page.

The centralized IT system shared by all of the participating carriers displays the most recent status of each shipment for both cargo and passenger operations.

"By enabling members' individual IT systems to communicate, SkyLink is facilitating freight forwarding for our customers throughout 175 countries," said Eric Hartmann, vice president SkyTeam Cargo.

The tool can be used by customers of all 12 SkyTeam Cargo members which include Aeroflot Cargo, Aerolineas Argentinas Cargo, AeroMéxico Cargo, Air France Cargo, Alitalia Cargo, China Airlines, China Cargo Airlines, Czech Airlines Cargo, Delta Cargo, KLM Cargo and Korean Air Cargo.
