Hellmann Worldwide Logistics signs a cooperation agreement with cargo.one, the digital cross-airline booking platform founded in 2017.
Cargo.one enables Hellmann Worldwide Logistics to book air freight capacities fully digitally in the future via the platform in real time at dynamic live spot rates for its customers. Cargo.one is one of the first platforms of its kind to offer freight forwarders an online booking service for air freight.
As a logistics service provider that focuses on innovation, Hellmann is one of the first customers of the Berlin-based cargo.one and thus plays a pioneering role in the digitalisation of the logistics industry, the digital booking company says.
Initially, Hellmann will use the carrier-independent platform throughout Germany before implementing the tool across its network in a worldwide roll-out.
For Bart de Vries, chief operating officer Air & Sea at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, the cooperation represents a progressive step towards greater transparency, efficiency and customer orientation.
“With cargo.one, digitalisation has arrived in air freight,” says de Vries. “As an innovative company, it is important to us, that Hellmann is at the forefront here. With cargo.one, we will be able to compare capacities and prices even more transparently and quickly in the future and realise freight space at top rates for our customers. I am convinced that this will accelerate our processes and further optimise them for our customers.”
Cargo.one co-founder, Moritz Claussen comments: “We are delighted to have convinced Hellmann, a leading and forward-looking global logistics group, of the advantages of the cargo.one-platform and our offering. For airlines, cargo.one offers an even more attractive distribution channel thanks to the cooperation with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.”
The two companies will work together to bring the capacities of other airlines onto the booking platform.
