UA will be air transporter for i2 FreightMatrix


Online logistics services provider i2 Technologies, Inc. says that United Airlines will become the first service provider for i2 FreightMatrix.

By working with United Airlines, FreightMatrix will provide customers with access to online booking and tracking of air freight, as well as same day express service options.

“Several of our current customers already have established relationships with i2. By participating, we will be positioned to meet their needs when they choose to use the FreightMatrix platform,” said Mark Haeussler, director of e-commerce for United NetVentures.

Mark Skoda, president and chief executive officer for FreightMatrix, added: “Because of growing competition and the ever-changing freight environment, companies need to be able to plan for and have access to the most cost effective shipping method to meet customer demands. The addition of United to the FreightMatrix service portfolio supports our efforts to provide customers with a complete, integrated logistics workflow to increase efficiencies while managing their supply chains.”
