IAG Cargo partners with Freightos to offer instant pricing and real time booking
June 5, 2019: International Airlines Group (IAG) Cargo is now providing instant access to rates, route availability, platform to make and manage bookings in real time to any of IAG Cargo’s 350+ destinations, through partnership with Freightos' booking portal WebCargo.
WebCargo, the comprehensive air cargo pricing and eBooking platform, has become the first live user of IAG Cargo’s digital APIs.
eBookings can be made via the platform in seconds, meaning time savings for freight forwarders and faster shipments for end customers. Shipment tracking is also in the late stages of development.
In addition to booking through WebCargo, IAG Cargo has invested heavily in developing APIs that can be integrated directly into customer systems, allowing customers the choice to book via IAGCargo.com or their own system.
Eniko Matanov, director of Strategy & Revenue Optimisation at IAG Cargo commented: “In our survey of the freight forwarding industry, over 80 percent of respondents said they expected digitalisation to positively impact their business – this announcement is one example where we are improving the speed and quality of bookings, rate searches and booking management.”
Manel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo by Freightos said: “We’re proud to have built the world’s largest digital air cargo network across 1,400 logistics providers. Today, we are thrilled that IAG Cargo is joining our network. IAG Cargo is a digital trendsetter and we’re excited to partner with them to bring air cargo online, beginning with seamless price, rate, and eBooking connectivity.”
Michel Forintos, manager Marketing, Business Processes & IT Solutions at Kintetsu World Express (KWE) said: “eBookings are key to KWE’S goal of making air cargo more efficient and predictable for our customers. WebCargo’s support of instant pricing and eBookings with one of our preferred partners, IAG Cargo, means smarter, faster operations and, more importantly, improved service.”
