'Customers will now be able to make cargo bookings direct on the platform for a majority of their cargo requirements after completing a short registration process,' the carrier said in a statement.
Emirates SkyCargo is rolling out the digital solution this month 'in a phased manner' and by the end of the month, it said, the majority of its global customers will be able to make bookings through the platform, reports London's Air Cargo News.
Nabil Sultan, Emirates' divisional senior vice president of cargo, commented: 'At Emirates SkyCargo, we are always looking at ways to make every stage of the transportation process more efficient - from the time of booking the shipment to the delivery of the cargo to the consignee.'
Scott McCorquodale, chief automation officer of air cargo at WiseTech, parent company of CargoWise, added: 'Adding to our growing number of airline-direct e-booking connections on the CargoWise platform, over time, all CargoWise users will have access to Emirates SkyCargo's flight schedules, rates, availability and real-time e-booking functions.
'Working together, this connection provides ease of access to timely data at the user's fingertips, translating to increased efficiencies and productivity, and importantly, informed decision making.'
