The technology in use enables Qatar Airways Cargo to share Response to Documents International Transport advice (RESDITs) for critical milestones during a mailbag’s journey.
As part of the relaunch, the product offers a suite of customizable services designed for both traditional and hybrid postal modes – Express Mail, Priority Mail, Standard Mail and Empty Mail Receptacles.
The Mail product meets the regulatory standards set by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Universal Postal Union (UPU).
