Air Logistics Route Management Service
Web ref - 60017
Improve your quality of service
Monitor the progress of your consignments against their planned route maps. Pictorial views and reports enable you to easily identify bottlenecks, fine-tune your air logistics network and improve your customer service.
This service provides better visibility at every stage of your air freight process and helps you to work more effectively with your service partners.
See the real view at last
The BT Air Logistics Route Management Service (RMS) enables you to improve the delivery of air freight services by helping you to:
- Follow the progress of your cargo at every stage, enhancing quality with improved visibility.
- Streamline traffic flow and deliver shipments on time to meet your service commitments.
- Encourage collaboration and integration of best practices all along the transport chain.
- Monitor key performance indicators to identify areas for service improvement.
- Reduce costs by eliminating labour intensive and expensive telephone queries attempting to trace missing cargo.
- Raise service levels for you and your customers, with fewer delays and faster delivery times.
- Improve your supply chain planning with a time-defined, factual-based route map.
- Boost customer confidence and loyalty as clients respond favourably to your higher quality of service.

A route map to service commitment
BT Air Logistics Route Management Service (RMS) supplies you with an Internet window into the world of shipment pick-up, transit and delivery.
There are three principal components of RMS:
A route map for each consignment: giving you visibility from pick-up to delivery.
- RMS integrates booking information, airline schedules and customer-supplied parameters to create a dynamic on-screen route map.
- Clearly defined pictorial images enable you to easily identify which consignments are on time or behind schedule.
Consignment management: managing the entire process from pick-up to delivery and automatically notifying you of delays.
- Track and record progress between airports at master air waybill level.
- Track and record progress from warehouse to destination at house waybill level.
- Create place- and time-critical "milestones" on the route aligned to partner service level agreements and customer service commitments.
- Receive discrepancy alerts via email, with an embedded hypertext link taking the user directly to the route map for that consignment.
A comprehensive reporting suite: delivering a broad range of reports to give you the insight you need for effective business planning.
- Choose from different report styles, including graphical and numerical.
- Produce Cargo 2000 CDMP compliance reports.
- Chart performance, visibility and timeliness.
Manage visibility and insight in easy, compliant steps
BT Air Logistics Route Management Service is an integrated solution aiming to provide open communication across your air freight community. RMS provides you with the critical business intelligence to accurately monitor and improve air cargo delivery performance.
Communicate effectively across your air logistics network
An important challenge for the air transport industry has been establishing integrated communication channels across every participant in the air freight community. BT has collaborated with the leading airlines and freight forwarders to design and develop a web-based service that gives you instant, on-screen access to shipment progress and related metrics.
Enjoy full visibility
By improving supply chain visibility and identifying areas for service improvement, BT provides the business intelligence essential for your reliable service delivery. This service delivers realtime, web-based access to graphical reports that pinpoint current consignment status and highlight any deviations from expected service levels.
Milestones alert you every step of the way
RMS offers enhanced shipment control by means of round-the-clock route map monitoring. This feature includes automated alerts and customer-centric exception handling. Higher visibility is assured via status updates for each milestone, employing standardised interfaces and data-exchange procedures.
Additionally, RMS includes a comprehensive reporting suite, offering you not just the Cargo 2000 specified reports but also providing you with key performance indicators, improved visibility and exchange of information between partners. Data can be viewed in different formats and sorted according to your own criteria.
Achieve Cargo 2000 compliance
The RMS service is closely aligned to the Cargo 2000 Master Operating Plan concept, which calls for implementation in three major phases. RMS currently supports both phases one and two (at the master air waybill level, airport to airport, and at the house waybill level, door to door).
An essential service for freight handlers and forwarders
This service is ideally suited to air carriers and freight forwarders of all sizes who need to improve visibility of their consignments in transit, speed up delivery to customers and enhance business intelligence and forward planning.
This product is available worldwide.
