Condor, TUI and Sunclass, managed by the ECS Group, are going live on cargo.one to offer their capacity for online booking with real-time pricing and instant confirmation.
Starting from November, the capacity of Condor, TUI and Sunclass will be made available on cargo.one in Germany, followed by other key European countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands and others.
ECS, a global GSSA, says the partnership with cargo.one will guarantee freight forwarders a “first-class booking experience from search to booking as, well as easy access to the carriers’ network”, especially the many frequencies to the Canary and ABC Islands.
Collaboration between different players is essential to reach the next phase of the air cargo industry’s digitalisation, notes ECS. “As part of our overall transformation agenda, we decided to partner with several digital solutions providers and cargo.one is one of them,” says Cedric Millet, chief strategy and digital officer at ECS Group.
“Online distribution is a needed service for us to allow our principals to rise from the COVID-19 crisis faster and stronger. Making the services of our partner airlines Condor, TUI and Sunclass available on cargo.one is a step forward in this strategy,” Millet adds.
Following its USD 18.6 million financing round, cargo.one has been rapidly expanding its services. Heading into peak season, the platform will be a crucial channel for its airline partners to distribute capacity efficiently.
“Being able to offer freight forwarders the broadest possible network and capacity available for booking to any destination in the world is an important goal for us at cargo.one, in particular in the upcoming peak season.” says Moritz Claussen, co-Founder and managing director at cargo.one.
“We look forward to welcoming Condor, TUI and Sunclass with their unique networks to our platform. To partner with ECS Group on this integration marks an important milestone for the industry. It signals our joint commitment towards more collaboration amongst all participants of the industry to create a bright and sustainable future for air cargo.”
