As of now, All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest airline, provides real-time quotes for all available air cargo capacity on leading e-booking platform cargo.one. Through ANA and cargo.one’s partnership, announced earlier this year, the ever-growing number of freight forwarders using cargo.one, will have easy web-based access to ANA’s large network with a focus on top destinations in Asia such as HND, NRT, HKG, SIN and more for booking with instant confirmation. Over the past week, ANA has restored a significant number of its European cargo flights, which are all bookable by freight forwarders on cargo.one.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for digital booking capabilities within the air cargo industry over the past months. ANA along with other airlines, has prioritized making it easier for freight forwarders to access and book capacity in a remote work setting.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for the increased digital sourcing and booking behavior of freight forwarders and has encouraged our companies to join together with an even stronger bond,” said Toshiaki Toyama, Executive Vice President of ANA. “Through this partnership, ANA can now guarantee a secure, first-class digital booking experience on cargo.one. We are extremely excited to join the cargo.one family and look forward in the coming months to offering more products and services to freight forwarders around the world via the platform.”
Over the course of the last year, cargo.one continues to prove its competence in deploying technology to quickly support profound changes in an airline’s digital capabilities.
“With cargo.one, it is possible for every airline to access incremental revenues and strengthen their top line,” said Moritz Claussen, Founder & Managing Director at cargo.one. “We have further standardized our processes while always keeping a customer-centric approach that is tailored towards the individual needs of our airline partners. We are very happy to have ANA on board now and look forward to expanding our partnership.”
Starting today, ANA capacity will be available in key European countries, such as Germany, the UK, and France. Other markets, such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Italy and Sweden will be available soon.
