Saudia Cargo and e-booking platform cargo.one have entered into a distribution agreement to provide digital booking experience to customers across the board.
Freight forwarders will be able to book Saudia Cargo’s real-time quotes on cargo.one within a matter of seconds and with instant confirmation. The airlines' capacity will become available on the cargo.one platform in the second quarter of 2021, giving freight forwarders additional access to routes across the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, and the USA.
cargo.one is a platform for booking and marketing air freight capacity. The company focuses on offering instantly bookable quotes for multiple airlines. cargo.one has already partnered with global airlines such as Lufthansa, Finnair, AirBridgeCargo, Etihad, and All Nippon Airways, while serving about 2,000 freight forwarding companies, including players such as Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, Agility Logistics, DACHSER, and Flexport. With Saudia Cargo on board, cargo.one is expanding its footprint in the Gulf region.
Omar Hariri, chief executive officer of Saudia Cargo, said, “Saudia Cargo’s objective is to always deliver a premium customer experience. We are convinced that cargo.one is the ideal partner to perfect our digital service offer. We will be offering customers a proven and efficient online booking platform where they have access to real-time rates and immediate booking confirmations.”
Teddy Zebitz, chief cargo officer, Saudia Cargo, said, “The pandemic has reinforced the importance of flexibility and speed in air cargo, with simplicity and process optimization being keys to success. Through cargo.one, we will offer our customers a fast, simple, and first-class booking experience. It will also enable us to quickly share and promote our ever-evolving freighter and passenger freighter network - such as our recently launched 5-weekly Liège-Riyadh service.”
