New Freightos Platform Gives Free Access to Airline Rates, eBookings
New WebCargo Sky App’s network covers 370+ airlines
Freight digitalisation specialist Freightos has upgraded its WebCargo Sky platform to offer freight forwarding agents free access to digital rates and real-time e-booking on more than 370 airlines.
IATA-certified airfreight forwarders can have free access to this platform that offers digital rates and real-time e-booking facilities. Freight forwarders can book on British Airways, Iberia, Air France KLM, Lufthansa and many more.
Said WebCargo CEO Manel Galindo: “Air cargo connectivity is at a tipping point and WebCargo Sky makes it accessible to any forwarder.
“As the industry’s most comprehensive e-Booking platform, Sky automates pricing from hundreds of airlines, even those without automated pricing, enabling industry-wide connectivity.”
The company said that the solution makes for efficient booking, shaving days off transit time, reducing costs, and improving service for shippers.
Zvi Schreiber, CEO of the Freightos Group, said: “By 2020, air cargo will routinely be priced dynamically and booked digitally.
“By providing WebCargo Sky for free to air forwarders, there are zero barriers for forwarders and airlines to communicate online through WebCargo. This will provide better service to air shippers, including capacity visibility on specific flights.
Ultimately shippers will benefit most with air cargo becoming more affordable and predictable.”
Freightos said WebCargo Sky beta users have reportedly saved over one hour per salesperson per day thus reducing costs and enabling sales teams to focus on customer service.
Airlines, for their part, benefit from accessing the world’s largest online network of forwarders as a sales channel and reduce 85% of time spent managing sales.
