Leisure Cargo is now integrated into the cargo.one platform providing digital booking of its global freight capacity at dynamic live spot rates with immediate confirmation.
With this new digital and data-driven distribution channel Leisure Cargo, through the cargo.one platform, gives air freight forwarders the opportunity for the first time to book Leisure Cargo’s freight capacities at dynamic live spot rates digitally, with immediate booking confirmation.
The user interface provides important routing information, as well as dynamic and capacity-dependent live spot rates. With the possibility of visualising hundreds of options per routing, customers can identify the most suitable offers. All offers are based on available capacities and live spot rates, which can be booked directly in real-time.
“With the connection to cargo.one as the world’s first platform that allows booking at dynamic spot rates with immediate confirmation, we now offer our customers even better possibilities to place bookings efficiently with us,” says Wolfram Simon, managing director of Leisure Cargo.
“The cooperation with cargo.one will lead to an acceleration and streamlining of booking processes for customers in our time-critical industry. We are particularly pleased to see that renowned freight forwarders actively requested cargo.one’s solution and were happy to use it in previous tests.”
According to cargo.one, its platform is unique in the industry as other providers have designed their services around the management and administration of rate sheets and negotiated rates, cargo.one focuses on the offer and bookability of dynamic live spot rates. Cargo.one develops proprietary interfaces with partner airlines to provide those dynamic live spot rates to air freight forwarders, it says.
“We are pleased to have integrated Leisure Cargo, another leading cargo airline, quickly and easily on the cargo.one platform,” comments cargo.one founder, Moritz Claussen. “This means that not only will Leisure Cargo customers now benefit from unparalleled booking options, but Leisure Cargo itself will also have access to a data-driven and wide-reaching sales channel after only a few weeks of integration. This demonstrates again that digitalisation is just a question of foresight and not a question of technical feasibility”.
