Service Delivery

In line with our commitment to transparency, as well as Cargo IQ and Service Level Agreement (SLA) compliance, we have worked to deploy the WFS Cargo Quality Centre (CQC) platform.​

Our CQC provides :​

  • Real-time and historical business intelligence at shipment level, flight level and consolidated by period.​
  • Comprehensive and easy access to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and transparent data on SLA performance to our customers​.
  • Continued close monitoring of our Cargo IQ performance. ​

Digital Transformation

WFS is investing heavily in digital transformation, upgrading to the most technologically-advanced tools to help us work more efficiently as a global organisation.

This will standardise systems across the group, eliminate paperwork and improve customers’ real-time visibility of cargo handling milestones. These changes are underpinned by the migration of our cargo management system Cargospot.
