Riege Booking API connects BGL to Air France KLM Martinair Cargo

Riege Airline Booking (PresseBox) ( Dusseldorf/Meerbusch, )
Riege Software announces the Go-Live of Dutch customer Best Global Logistics (BGL) with the newly developed Direct Airline Booking API. In the first step, the API is available for Air France KLM Martinair Cargo bookings, enabling seamless operations in conjunction with Riege's forwarding software Scope as an integrated solution. Providing the benefits of direct booking while at the same time avoiding the disadvantage of system changes, the Direct Airline Booking API marks another milestone in Riege's “One System. One Record.” approach to push Scope as the Digital Standard in logistics.

BGL was the first Riege customer who requested this integration and they will be the first ones to use it. After the pilot period, Fast Forward Freight (FFF) will follow. Both BGL and FFF have invested in the development of the API together with Riege which allowed the completion in the shortest period of time possible. “It was our intention to benefit from this solution, the sooner the better, but we also had the ambition to be the first ones owning this API as an early adopter as well as a driver of future-oriented technology,” said Michel Loots, CEO at BGL.

With the new API Scope users can directly send a booking request to Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, they will receive flights and prices in real time and then can book the required flight. All directly from within Scope without separate booking via webportals or phone and always with the latest dynamic prices at hand. “Technically, it is all about a real-time match between capacity and demand. In practice, it is about saving time and money by avoiding phone calls and system changes. Literally a significant win for us and our customers which simultaneously makes us stronger in a very competitive market. The money we invested together with FFF is well spent, and the ROI is calculated for within one year,” said Michel focussing the economic aspect.

“You rarely find companies co-investing in technological progress these days. With partners like BGL and FFF, Riege is blessed in the best meaning of the word. Together we set the foundation for a ground-breaking solution that will later be available for all Scope users worldwide. And of course, it is not limited to Air France KLM Martinair Cargo. All airlines are most welcome to join this community, gaining new customers with impressive volumes of freight,” said Henk Boorsma, Managing Director and co-owner of Riege Software in the Netherlands. 65.995 unique AWBs created by Scope users within the last 12 months only for Air France KLM Martinair Cargo speak for themselves.

“I am glad and honoured to represent a company which not only can trust in the capabilities and loyalty of its employees, but also in the allegiance of its customers many of whom have proven more than once that real partnership goes beyond purely factual business relationships. That's priceless. I wish to express my thankfulness specifically to Michel Loots of BGL and Marc Terpstra of FFF. When we say that Scope is the future of digital logistics, guys like them are the driving force,” said Dr. Tobias Riege, CEO of Riege Software.
