Turkish Cargo will soon provide global forwarders the ability to conduct real-time e-bookings, access live rates, and see available air cargo capacity through WebCargo.
Turkish Cargo will first roll out on WebCargo in Spain and India, to be quickly followed by roll outs in several more countries, it says.
With the airline’s shift to global e-bookings, more than 20 per cent of global air cargo capacity will be digitised, providing more than 2,000 WebCargo forwarders across more than 10,000 global branches with instant access to capacity and pricing.
“Live access to capacity and price supports our ongoing commitment to provide Hellman customers with outstanding service. We’re delighted to see Turkish Cargo on Webcargo,” says Christian Tesch, director airfreight carrier relations & procurement at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
Turhan Ozen, chief cargo officer, Turkish Airlines comments: “Effective leadership is required to handle the customers constantly diversifying demands accurately across the air cargo industry.
“As the air cargo brand with one of the widest networks in the world, we focus on digital solutions. We are pleased to partner with WebCargo to provide digital connectivity for our customers as part of our commitment to constant innovation in offering the best service possible.”
Manel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo says: “In the past year, eBookings have increased tenfold on WebCargo, making it clear that the future of air cargo is digital.
“We’re incredibly proud to partner with Turkish Cargo, one of the most impactful and influential global cargo airlines, to launch eBookings for forwarders around the world.”
