Air Mauritius extends partnership with Champ Cargosystems
Air Mauritius has extended its relationship with airfreight IT firm Champ Cargosystems to a worldwide contract, including the EU, as it prepares to adopt the latter’s new ICS2 (Import Control System 2) regulation.
Founded in 1967, Air Mauritius links the island nation with Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa, serving ten non-stop regional and international destinations.
It already uses Champ’s Traxon Global Customs (TGC) for selected countries, and will now use the service to automatically provide the necessary advance customs information for air cargo and mail shipments to or via EU member states in order to avoid penalties or delays.
The carrier’s chief commercial officer Laurent Recoura said: “Air Mauritius is upgrading its reservations systems to match the EU requirements in terms of customs clearance through our extended partnership with CHAMP Cargosystems. This is one of Air Mauritius initiatives to ensure we deliver the best service to our customers.”
Champ Cargosystems’ chief commercial officer, Nicholas Xenocostas, added: “With Traxon Global Customs in place, Air Mauritius will have a reliable solution that will support its filing operations, regardless of the changes that come into play.”
Champ Cargosystems serves over 200 airlines and GSAs, linking them to 3,000 forwarders and handlers worldwide. It offers management systems, messaging services, and eCargo solutions, including applications to meet customs and security requirements, quality optimization as well as e-freight and mobility needs under its Cargospot and Traxon brands.
