Royal Jordanian selected Cargoworks Europe to be its general sales and services agent (GSSA) in Germany, as the airline decided to outsource cargo sales activities. Thus Cargoworks will represent RJ Cargo effective September 1, 2008.
RJ President/CEO Samer Majali said: "Cargoworks is a strong partner to RJ. It is committed to excellence in service and has high-quality people, which results in superior business success. They are using the same IT solution that RJ will install in October 2008, i.e., Cargospot."
Majali added that Cargospot is an end-to-end air cargo system developed in Switzerland and used by more than 80 international companies. It aims to improve air cargo sales, reservations, pricing, management information and handling.
With Cargospot, airline clients and their logistics partners will be able to fully benefit from all industry interfaces to finally do "e-business" with RJ.
RJ Cargo is consistently reviewing its route network. The three freighters, which include two Airbus A310s and one Boeing 737, are being operated to Damascus, Tel Aviv, Brussels, Heathrow, London Gatwick, Dubai, Khartoum, Athens, Larnaca, Istanbul, Cairo, Baghdad and Suleimanieh in Iraq. The company is currently considering opening new freighter destinations to expand its service around the world.
RJ also carries freight, courier packages and mail in the holds of Royal Jordanian wide-bodied passenger fleet to Cairo, Jeddah, Riyadh, Detroit, Chicago, Delhi, Colombo, Hong-Kong and Bangkok, and in the holds of the airline’s narrow-bodied passenger aircraft to the 42 other destinations the airline serves. Airbus A310 has a capacity of 35.5 tons and Boeing 737 of 14.4 tons.
The airline operates a 17,000 m2 cargo terminal at Queen Alia International Airport serving 30 international airline clients, and it has over 34 cargo general sales agents worldwide.
