AirBridgeCargo and CargoLogicAir to Launch on Cargo One Platform
Two of the world’s leading air cargo carriers, AirBridgeCargo (ABC) and CargoLogicAir (CLA) recently announced they have entered into a global partnership with cargo.one, the online air cargo booking platform. With this new partnership, ABC and CLA will become the first all-cargo airlines to make their capacities available for digital booking with instant confirmation.
ABC and CLA will benefit greatly from cargo.one’s rapidly growing customer base of hundreds of freight forwarding companies allowing them to market their global capacities digitally. Freight forwarders of all sizes from around the globe will now be able to compare and book offers of ABC and CLA.
Volga-Dnepr Group VP for Sales and Marketing, Robert van de Weg said, “Offering our capacities on cargo.one enables us to meet customers’ growing demand for digital solutions and to give forwarders of all sizes access to our large global freighter network.”
Chief Executive Officer of CLA, David Kerr commented, “Being capable now to better reach small and medium-sized forwarders through cargo.one will also help us increase our short-term capacity sales and thus our load factors, to grow even more sustainably.”
Freight forwarders have welcomed the new move to cargo.one, CEO Airfreight at Skyline Express International, Hauke Langert had this to say, “Gaining faster and more efficient access to freighter capacities is a real game-changer. cargo.one now allows us to have 24/7 access to CLA and ABC capacities and enables us to serve our customers and partners based on real-time rates.”
Managing Director at CS4 Logistics, Steffen Löbert also welcomed the new partnership, “We highly welcome the partnership and looking forward to expanding our relationship with ABC and CLA because of the much easier access now.”
cargo.one founder and managing director, Moritz Claussen added, “We are very excited to enable this industry-first. ABC and CLA are spearheading innovation for all-cargo airlines to become more digital and thus customer-centric. And, they are now able to access the untapped market of smaller and medium-sized forwarders that were previously not able to book with them. This will help them to further up their sales and load factors across their networks.”
AirBridgeCargo and CargoLogicAir capacities are expected to be live this summer after successful integration of the carriers’ in-house systems with the new platform.
