Air Bridge Cargo partners with WebCargo; offers eBooking
Air Bridge Cargo announced a partnership with WebCargo and brought its real-time pricing and booking capabilities completely today. Freight forwarders can now price and book cargo digitally, with real-time capacity visibility, for almost 40 routes between North America, Asia, and Europe. Air Bridge Cargo is rising to this challenge joining other leading airlines to bring air cargo online.
Access to digital, real-time air cargo has become critical as logistics providers work to keep global goods moving. However, rapid pricing changes continue to be a major barrier to ensuring full cargo capacity. With over 30 percent of the world’s air cargo volumes being managed by WebCargo customers, the ability to book cargo in real-time is a game changer.
“The impact of Covid-19 across the globe is unprecedented, we need to be online for our customers now more than ever.” said Andrey Andreev, Air Bridge Cargo, VP Europe. “Today’s announcement underlines ABC’s commitment to serve the digital channel and with WebCargo we will connect our inventory to the freight forwarder community at scale. We plan to quickly extend our online offering to new commodity types and together with internal developments in the area of dynamic pricing, this partnership is very well aligned for us.”
“Air carriers have a unique and important role to play keeping global trade moving, especially during crises,” said Manel Galindo, WebCargo CEO. “WebCargo is proud to partner with airlines like Air Bridge Cargo who are stepping up to the logistics challenges of Covid-19 and quickly implementing digital tools like our eBooking platform.”
WebCargo has been chosen by major airline groups such as Lufthansa, AF KLM, IAG Cargo, Etihad Cargo, and more, for eBooking and online rate distribution.
