Lufthansa Cargo will add a direct connection to the WiseTech Global platform allowing users to make e-bookings on the carrier’s services.
The tie-up will provide CargoWise users with air cargo rates, flight availability and the booking confirmation in real-time.
“Through API connectivity, the connection will increase forwarder productivity, eliminate manual, error-prone data entry and rekeying between systems, provide increased visibility and reduce resources and costs,” the partners said.
Ashwin Bhat, chief commercial officer at Lufthansa Cargo, said: “As the air cargo industry continues to experience a rapidly changing environment, the ability to connect directly to CargoWise means we are providing our customers with booking possibilities via their own systems.
“Not only will this eBooking connection benefit our customers with increased efficiencies and productivity, but it is also enabling and supporting the digitalization of the logistics ecosystem.”
