WebCargo’s digital booking platform to offer Air Canada Cargo capacity
MARCH 28, 2022
Canada’s largest air cargo provider doubles down on commitment to innovation and technology via Digital Air Cargo real-time pricing and eBooking for thousands of forwarders on WebCargo.
March 28, 2022 BARCELONA – Throughout the pandemic, Canada has been one of the countries hit the hardest by supply chain shortage. Forwarders and carriers have risen to the challenge but an ongoing drive to improve has made Digital Air Cargo solutions an obvious choice for forward-thinking airlines like Air Canada Cargo, and in particular its Cargo division, with the many investments and digitization projects that it continues to implement.
Over the next few weeks, Air Canada Cargo will continue to improve global air cargo for freight forwarders around the world by offering real-time pricing, capacity visibility and booking for the 10,000+ forwarder offices using WebCargo for digital cargo booking.
Air Canada Cargo’s many destinations include major cities across North America and Europe, already connected through WebCargo’s platform and 7LFreight, a rate management company recently acquired by Freightos. With this, WebCargo is perfectly placed to serve Air Canada Cargo’s target markets.
“It’s become increasingly clear throughout the pandemic and resulting supply chain challenges that digitalization is the key to the success of air cargo,” said Matthieu Casey, Senior Director, Cargo Global Sales and Revenue Optimization at Air Canada Cargo. “As one of the largest North American airlines, we pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve, and embracing technological solutions that will provide value to our customers and add efficiencies to our company.”
“We’ve seen demand for Digital Air Cargo skyrocket, with eBookings on the WebCargo platform increasing 10X in 2021 alone,” said Manel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo. “This adoption has been in large part thanks to the cooperation of tech-forward airlines like Air Cargo Canada who see the inherent value and need in digital air cargo solutions. We’re excited to launch our partnership and enable more forwarders to start booking online.”
