Etihad Cargo has signed a distribution agreement with multi-airline e-booking platform cargo.one. Starting this week, freight forwarders will find that they are now able to instantly book cargo space on Etihad’s aircraft through the digital platform.
“Today, about 38% of bookings are coming through our online portal and that number continues to increase – it shows the cargo industry’s hunger and drive to adopt digital technologies,” said Abdulla Mohamed Shadid Etihad Aviation Group’s managing director cargo and logistics services.
“cargo.one is the number one choice for airlines to foster digitalisation and to put their customers first. Our fast-growing user base not only makes it attractive for airlines to join as a means of reaching new customers, but also helps them to serve their customers’ needs in the best possible way. With Etihad Cargo on board we strengthen our market position as the leading distribution channel for cargo airlines and further grow our offering for freight forwarders,” said Moritz Claussen, managing director, cargo.one.
“In total we are adding 30-35 additional destinations around the world with Etihad Cargo joining,”
“This is part of a wider strategy of taking our customers from the transactional era and moving them to the experience era with Etihad Cargo,” Shadid added.
