OAG Cargo's enhanced AFRA Air Freight Rates application is an online and real-time rate-management and distribution product for the airfreight industry. The new AFRA product is a completely rewritten and improved version of the company's cargo rates management tool that includes more than five million rates. Among the new features added to the application is e-acceptance. This allows airlines and forwarders to communicate and record online rate agreements, reducing subsequent potential billing discrepancies. Another enhancement is spot price capturing, which enables the recording of rates that have been agreed upon by telephone and email. Additional features include currency conversions of rates, and zone-specific rates as well as multiple PDF and Excel templates for mass distribution of rates by email. Surcharges, particularly fuel, also form an integral part of the newly launched rate management system.
Various options to personalize the information for specific contracts or relationships are available, giving airlines full control over which customers can see their tariffs, spot prices, and surcharges. To protect the data, these personalization options are supported by multiple levels of security. The application also provides direct links from the rates results page to airlines' own booking sites or preferred booking pOréals.
The new version of the application is also equipped with a standardized rate interface for airlines, enabling carriers to directly load their rates into AFRA from within their own systems—quickly, securely and accurately. Furthermore, airlines can use AFRA to distribute rates to all customers, whether or not they are users of AFRA.
