CargoAi eBooking & eQuote platform adds Air Canada Cargo

CargoAi on Tuesday announced that Air Canada Cargo has selected its eBooking and eQuote platform to accelerate eBooking adoption with freight forwarders.

The Air Canada Cargo product will effectively be launched on and be available to registered freight forwarders starting mid-April, in a progressive regional rollout. For CargoAi users, this rollout plan means extra capacity from North America, followed by all regions worldwide to be added by the end of the year.

Launched in 2019, CargoAi is on a mission to bring the best available technologies to airfreight. Matt Petot, CEO of CargoAi, said, "We're thrilled to be announcing the partnership between Air Canada Cargo and CargoAi. Both organisations share very ambitious growth plans in the post-pandemic months and years to come, as well as a relentless focus on the customer experience. As such we are looking forward to leveraging this alignment in vision and strategy and bringing the best digital booking experience to our joint customers."

About the development, Matthieu Casey, managing director of commercial-cargo at Air Canada, said, "We continue to invest in our digital transformation, which is a key pillar of Air Canada Cargo's strategy as it continues to adapt to the changing landscape in airfreight. We're looking forward to further leveraging our API capabilities and the opportunity to reach out to additional users via the CargoAi marketplace. We're continuing to grow our distribution reach and we're confident that the features available on CargoAi will be well suited to the large range of our product portfolio."

Freight forwarders using the CargoAi solution on the marketplace or via the API Suite integrations not only have the option of making and managing instant bookings for their shipments but can also leverage the built-in eQuote tool to send quote requests on any product, commodity, BUP or shipment size. This scope coverage makes CargoAi a much-needed and unique tool for freight forwarders looking for a one-stop shop to increase the productivity of their airfreight procurement activities.

CargoAi offers a complete range of digital air cargo solutions to freight forwarders, airlines and GSAs, including a SaaS booking application available either as a marketplace and under White Label, an API Suite that integrates directly into TMS and ERP systems, an AI-powered Cargo Business Intelligence as well as an integrated Sustainability solution that spans the entire portfolio.
