13 September 2011, UK, EUROPE, WORLDWIDE – Swissport International Ltd., based in Zurich, has picked Wembley-based Transputec Computers plc as the provider for their electronic air freight document management need worldwide, after using similarly provided systems at their Heathrow facilities for the previous eight years.

Transputec will initially deploy its SHIELD Intelefile system to twenty major Swissport stations in Europe and the United States by 2012, before expanding to all stations globally. SHIELD Intelefile was created expressly for the air freight business, where enormous amounts of paper-based paperwork remain prevalent.

Swissport International Ltd provides ground services for 3.2 million tonnes of cargo per year through 98 warehouses with a total floor area of over 360,000 square metres (not to mention the 100 million or so passengers) and employs approximately 35,000 people across 180 stations in 36 countries across five continents. “We are very happy to grant Transputec a worldwide contract,” said John Batten, the company’s EVP for Global Cargo.

SHIELD Intelefile has been utilised extremely effectively at Heathrow, assisting in the streamlining of logistics, the improvement of customer service, and the reduction of total administrative expenses. It is also the most realistic solution to the ever-changing issue of air freight paperwork compliance.”

“This is wonderful news for Transputec,” stated Transputec CEO Rickie Sehgal. The deal with Swissport builds on the success of our previous work and cements our continued engagement to innovate further in creating e-freight solutions.”
