RushKargo Extends the value chain to door-to-door
Global airlines’ traditional airport-to-airport cargo business model has reduced the business to a commodity enterprise – a “dive to the bottom” competition on price and capacity. It’s no surprise that integrators have become so dominant.
SmartKargo’s aims to change all that with RushKargo, our door-to-door solution. RushKargo allows airlines to extend their value chain to door-to-door service, while enabling them to project their brand across the entire process – thus matching the integrators’ service offerings.
RushKargo gives carriers the tools to capture incremental revenues from additional client-focused services, to tap into the burgeoning e-commerce market (both B2B and B2C), and to create visibility and brand awareness across the entire cargo chain.
With RushKargo, airlines can effectively safeguard their traditional business with forwarders and 3PLs, and simultaneously get a foothold in e-commerce. Benefits are clear:
Capture e-commerce opportunities, support existing courier and express business models, extend new services to shippers and clients.
Better Service, Happier Customers
Provide end-to-end shipment visibility, shorten time-to-market, and reduce the expense and number of intermediaries.
Support multiple business models, and choose the suppliers for first and last mile (Uber-like technology).
Increase competitiveness, lower total shipment cost, and better control the entire value chain.
