SINGAPORE, 26 Oct. 2017/ Medianet International-AsiaNet/ --

Innovative cargo solution Digistics receives customer choice title after 
winning popular online vote for ability to support digital transformation 
across supply chain 


Unisys Corporation (http://www.unisys.com/) (NYSE: UIS) today announced that it 
has won the Customer Choice Award for IT Service Provider of the Year at the 
Payload Asia Awards (http://awards.payloadasia.com/) , honouring innovation and 
excellence in the air cargo supply chain. Unisys was recognised for 
Digistics(TM) (http://www.unisys.com/digistics), a holistic and integrated 
digital logistics solution that enables air cargo carriers to streamline their 
freight management and improve operational efficiencies.

The awards, hosted by leading industry publisher Payload Asia 
(http://www.payloadasia.com/), were presented in Singapore on 12 October 2017. 
Determined by popular online voting, the awards spotlight air cargo supply 
chain companies that have excelled despite a challenging global air freight 
market – demonstrating agility, innovation and superior strategic planning – 
and having a beneficial impact on market trends. 

Digistics features a modern, cloud-based architecture that greatly improves a 
carrier’s speed to market, while advanced analytics and machine learning 
technologies analyse past, present and future data to optimise supply chain 
operations and route planning. The cloud-based solution allows for seamless 
integration into existing systems and supports multiple device types – 
including mobile devices, tablets, touchscreen devices, and PCs – enabling a 
more agile, digital workspace. 

"This award is a testament to our clients as much as it is to us," said Tony 
Windever, vice president and general manager, Unisys Asia Pacific. "We have 
seen first-hand the commitment and dedication our clients have toward embracing 
digital transformation to foundationally transform their business operations, 
and through our partnership and collaboration, have developed software to meet 
those most critical business needs."

This acknowledgement is the latest recognition for Unisys cargo capabilities. 
In July, Unisys’ predictive freight capability was honoured (

for "Best Software Architecture" at the ICMG 2017 USA Architecture Excellence 
Awards.

to our customers and business partners in further endorsing Digistics as their 
choice of product for air cargo operations," said Dheeraj Kohli (
