TAP Air Cargo implements CHAMP API

Published: Tuesday, July 14, 2020

TAP Air Cargo has implemented CHAMP API, which offers web-based access to functionality to further enrich customer applications. The service allows TAP to improve its internal business processes, tracking, and synchronization of its supply chain. Due to special circumstances, the solution was implemented in less than one week.

APIs, or Application Programing Interfaces, allow the capabilities of one computer system to be used by another, allowing to blend state-of-the-art solutions to gain added value. One of CHAMP APIs assists to keep customers updated on the status of their shipments across 80+ carriers. It is an affordable solution to ensure easy integrations with current and future systems. CHAMP APIs are being made available through CHAMP’s new API gateway.

“We asked and CHAMP delivered,” says Bernardo Nunes, Cargo & Mail – Business Development, Senior Manager at TAP Air Portugal. “CHAMP APIs simply work well and efficiently. Leveraging CHAMP API provided us and our clients with much additional value. We see many more opportunities for value gains in the future.”

“APIs are a powerful tool that can take any airline to the next level of communication,” says Nicholas Xenocostas, Vice President Commercial & Customer Engagement at CHAMP Cargosystems. “TAP Air Cargo’s transition towards total communication will open many new possibilities in streamlining its business.”

TAP Air Cargo also uses a variety of CHAMP services across cargo management applications, supply chain integration, regulatory compliance, as well as community marketplace services.
