AirBridgeCargo (ABC) and CargoLogicAir (CLA) are now ready to go live with its first bookings via digital platform cargo.one – 12 weeks after signing a partnership with the IT company
From now on, ABC and CLA capacities are available online for cargo, covering general and premium services, originating from Frankfurt, Munich and Leipzig in Germany, as well as Amsterdam in the Netherlands with further plans for expansion of online points.
ABC vice president for Europe, Andrey Andreev said: “Being part of digital booking platforms becomes essential for air cargo players if they want to embrace new sales channels and expand their customer base building strategic relations on different levels with customers and understanding their needs, as well as following market trends.
“We have analysed various options in the market and went for cargo.one for a number of reasons. Besides being driven by a young and professional team, cargo.one’s ambitious platform guarantees a simple, clean and intuitive experience for its users providing better choices on time-condition for airfreight and facilitating transactions.
“We can reach our existing customers and new ones with ease following our top marketing key approach. The simplicity of cargo.one makes it a truly seamless experience, fully transparent for our customers from search to booking in under a minute.”
ABC, CLA and cargo.one teams met at Frankfurt Airport to celebrate the successful integration and the first bookings as part of their collaboration, which also covers in-depth personnel training.
“This day is a milestone for the air cargo industry. After twelve weeks of hard work, agile development and constructive engagement on both sides, capacities of AirBridgeCargo and CargoLogicAir can now be booked with the click of a button and instant confirmation on cargo.one,” said Moritz Claussen, managing director and founder of cargo.one.
With these successful first steps, the companies aim to expand their offering to include the full breadth and depth of their network. That means go-live beyond European launch markets in Germany and the Netherlands and expanding the scope of their products and services.
ABC, CLA and cargo.one first announced about their partnership during air cargo Europe in June and have so far been working on building data and analytics capabilities and integrating them with the companies’ commercial and operational processes to deliver a better product.
