CMA CGM Air Cargo will place its capacity on booking portal CargoAi as it looks to expand its reach with SME forwarders.

CargoAi said that CMA CGM was the 71st airline to place its capacity on the portal and that the addition meant that forwarders can search from 195 origins to 447 destinations.

The portal is also the first online marketplace to offer CMA CGM capacity for instant booking “in line with CMA CGM’s first own scheduled freighter service from Paris to Hong Kong SAR and vice versa”. 

Matt Petot, founder and chief executive of CargoAi, said: “We have been growing very fast thanks to our different approach and special focus on making it simple for our airlines to integrate and for our forwarders users to make bookings.

“Our unique combination of tech and air cargo talents has helped to showcase that CargoAi can deliver modern tech solutions at a very fast pace to this industry.

“We have still a lot of work to do and 2023 looks already very exciting as CargoAi will focus on delivering new solutions outside of our e-booking platform (CargoMART) and work on customized projects for our partners.”

Magali Beauregard, chief commercial officer of CargoAi, added: “We’re thrilled that CargoMART becomes the first marketplace to sell CMA CGM’s freighter service. This is a great addition to our existing airline portfolio that users on get benefit from.”

CMA CGM Air Cargo is owned by shipping giant CMA CGM and launched operations in 2021. 

The company is quickly expanding its freighter fleet – it was one of the first to sign an LOI for Airbus’ new A350 freighter as well as B777 freighters –  and has a capacity partnership with the Air France KLM Group.

The last year has seen CargoAi focus on its emissions reduction offering and the portal recently launched a SAF purchase option when bookings are made.

The portal also offers a carbon calculator and a Co2 efficiency score.
