Lufthansa Cargo to offer spot market capacity on digital platform

Lufthansa Cargo will begin offering spot market capacity through online platform cargo.one as it pushes its digital offering to forwarders.
The German cargo carrier has signed a co-operation contract with cargo.one allow customers to book available capacity for its express service td.Flash and its standard service td.Pro "completely digitally and in real time across the entire available route grid".
Lufthansa Cargo chairman of the board Peter Gerber said: "Digitisation allows information to be distributed around the globe in fractions of a second.
"This has given rise to new expectations with which both carriers and freight forwarders are confronted. We are therefore now offering our customers the opportunity to exchange prices and capacities even faster and to book services even easier.
"Booking platforms such as cargo.one will in future support forwarders in meeting their customers’ needs even better. This is the next logical step in the digitisation of our industry."
Cargo.one founder Oliver Neumann added: "Many solutions on the market promise digital bookability. The reality is that in most cases the rates offered do not give access to capacity.
"In particular at times of high demand, our solution offers airfreight forwarders a quick and easy access to capacities with immediate confirmation at live spot rates."
