American Airlines selected cargo.one as a strategic partner to offer its state-of-the-art technology, a customer-oriented interface, and modern product development to the rapidly increasing number of freight forwarding customers using cargo.one’s platform. cargo.one’s extensive data insights will also enable the airline to regularly fine-tune its capacity offer accordingly.
When it comes to business success and world-class customer experience in today’s air cargo world, data transparency and data distribution capabilities are as crucial as network, handling, and fleet. As a pioneer in the air cargo industry for more than 75 years, American Airlines Cargo believes innovation and continuous improvement are a key to success in this area. This is demonstrated with the recent implementation of its new end-to-end cargo management system, allowing it to be more innovative and responsive to its customers’ needs.
The partnership with cargo.one is yet another way American is offering customers flexible and innovative solutions by providing them with more options for a first-class digital booking experience.
“I’m a strong believer that the cargo industry must continue to innovate to enable us to engage with our customers in a more personal, and definitely a far more efficient way. Flexibility and speed are more important than ever, and the industry needs to continue to find ways to quickly adapt. With cargo.one’s customer-centric approach, American Airlines Cargo is in an even better position to match those requirements,” Tyler added.
American Airlines Cargo has seen its customer base expand and demand for a digital booking experience increase. The ever-changing flight schedules resulting from the pandemic have driven the need for reliable, real-time capacity information and a clear overview of routes and services available. cargo.one not only meets these customer requirements - as proven by its 700 percent growth rate in 2020 - it also provides a fast, first-class booking experience and offers its airline partners greater customer reach.
“What better way to pioneer our footprint in America, than with American Airlines?” said Moritz Claussen, founder and managing director of cargo.one. “With American Airlines Cargo as a launch partner, we are kicking off a new era of customer-centric air cargo sales in North America, manifesting our ambition to become the go-to platform for freight forwarders in the US and beyond.”
