Any Where, Any Size, Any Type - All Cargo Welcome

CASS

Cargo Account Settlement Systems (CASS) is designed to simplify the billing and settling of accounts between airlines and freight forwarders. It operates through an advanced global web-enabled e-billing solution.

At the end of 2013, CASS was processing in 83 export operations, 11 import operations, 2 domestic operations, collectively serving over 500 airlines, GSSAs and Ground Handling Companies and settling a combined $31 billion. The on-time settlement rate was 99.98%.

CASS yields a two-fold solution as it replaces:

a) Airlines' traditional paper based invoicing
b) Agents' manual controlling of those invoices, while all benefit from:

Any market may host a CASS operation as long as there is enough volume, i.e., more than one airline/freight forwarder.

IATA agents join CASS at no cost whereas non-IATA agents or other intermediaries may join at a cost. All airlines are eligible to participate. Entry fees are  $2,500 for IATA member Airlines and $3,500 for non-member Airlines or GSA's. All other costs are shared equally based on the respective volumes airlines process through the system.
