CargoConnect brings cargo and capacity together

Through its unique freight forwarder business network on regional and global levels, ECS Group’s CargoConnect provides 24/7 commercial support in matching air freight with available scheduled and charter capacities.

“ECS Group goes the extra mile to maximise your loadfactor,” is CargoConnect’s tagline.

Led by Jorrit Dubois, a dedicated CargoConnect team in Paris manages relationships with multinational forwarders, ensuring that ECS Group products are promoted at all levels.

Moreover, CargoConnect is equipped to support freight forwarders in marketing any remaining capacity on their own dedicated programs.

Working in close cooperation with ECS Group’s in-house Revenue Management team, CargoConnect is quickly able to identify and secure the optimum business mix.

“Collaboration is always beneficial for business, but becomes absolutely crucial in times of chaos, as we have all seen over the past two years” Jorrit Dubois, Coordinator of CargoConnect, observes.

ECS Group created CargoConnect in September 2020, to counteract the mass disruption and uncertainty within the air cargo industry, caused by the domino effects of the pandemic.

“Since we already foster solid business relationships with the world’s largest freight forwarders and airlines, we were in the unique position of having a central overview of existing controlled capacity programs and certain charter operations.

“As such, CargoConnect was able to provide much-needed support in quickly matching cargo with any available capacity – maximising load factors and efficient space utilisation.”
