AMI U.K. Launches Online Cargo Portal for Freight Agents

The U.K. arm of Air Menzies International Ltd. (AMI), a trade-only wholesaler of airfreight and express capacity, has launched an online Quote&Book portal.

The site is modeled on AMI's Express click2ship model, launched in 2010. It is accessible only by AMI-approved agent customers, who need enter only a few shipment details to obtain immediate quotes. Prices can then be filtered using AMI's consolidation or direct AWB service, as well as by airport of departure, and direct or deferred services. Customers can request additional services, including nationwide collection, house air waybill production, National Export System entries and security screening. In the first-phase release, Quote&Book is focusing on airport-to-airport export shipments. The second phase, covering airport to door, is due for release later in 2015.
