Freightos opens up WebCargo Sky for free access to digital rates, e-booking
June 14, 2019: Freight digitalisation specialist Freightos has opened up its WebCargo Sky platform to offer freight forwarding agents free access to digital rates and real-time e-booking on select airline groups.
It is making the free platform available to IATA certified airfreight forwarders, who can access digital rates and real-time e-booking on it. Freight forwarders can book on British Airways, Iberia, Air France KLM and Lufthansa.
“Air cargo connectivity is at a tipping point and WebCargo Sky makes it accessible to any forwarder. As the industry’s most comprehensive e-Booking platform, Sky automates pricing from hundreds of airlines, even those without automated pricing, enabling industry-wide connectivity,” said WebCargo CEO Manel Galindo.
The company said that the solution makes for efficient booking, shaving days off transit time, reducing costs, and improving service for shippers.
Zvi Schreiber, CEO of the Freightos Group, said, “By 2020, air cargo will routinely be priced dynamically and booked digitally. By providing WebCargo Sky for free to air forwarders, there are zero barriers for forwarders and airlines to communicate online through WebCargo. This will provide better service to air shippers, including capacity visibility on specific flights.”
Freightos said WebCargo Sky beta users reported saving over one hour per salesperson per day, “reducing costs and enabling sales teams to focus on customer service. Meanwhile, airlines benefit from accessing the world’s largest online network of forwarders as a sales channel and reduce 85 percent of time spent managing sales. Ultimately shippers will benefit most with air cargo becoming more affordable and predictable.”
