RUSSIA's Air Bridge Cargo has announced it has brought its real-time pricing and booking capabilities completely online through a partnership with WebCargo.
Freight forwarders can now price and book cargo digitally, with real-time capacity visibility, for almost 40 routes between North America, Asia, and Europe, reports the American Journal of Transportation.
This bold step is extremely timely, as logistics providers and importers continue to play a vital role in keeping global supply chains running during the Covid-19 pandemic. This has led to rapid capacity and pricing fluctuations, requiring the combination of real-time information and cargo capacity.
Access to digital, real-time air cargo has become critical as logistics providers work to keep global goods moving, said a company statement. With over 30 per cent of the world's air cargo volumes being managed by WebCargo customers, the ability to book cargo in real-time is a game changer, it said.
'The impact of Covid-19 across the globe is unprecedented, we need to be online for our customers now more than ever.' said Air Bridge Cargo European chief AndreyAndreev.
'We plan to quickly extend our online offering to new commodity types and together with internal developments in the area of dynamic pricing, this partnership is very well aligned for us,' he said.
Said WebCargo CEO Manel Galindo: 'Air carriers have a unique and important role to play keeping global trade moving, especially during crises. WebCargo is proud to partner with airlines like Air Bridge Cargo who are stepping up to the logistics challenges of Covid-19 and quickly implementing digital tools like our ebooking platform.'
WebCargo has been chosen by major airline groups such as Lufthansa, AF KLM, IAG Cargo, Etihad Cargo, and more, for ebooking and online rate distribution. Logistics providers who are IATA members can access dynamic capacity, pricing, and ebooking by signing up at webcargo.co.
