Qatar Cargo to offer capacity on WebCargo

Qatar Airways Cargo is continuing its digital expansion by signing up to offer its capacity on booking portal WebCargo.

The airline said it would provide forwarders with real-time pricing, capacity and e-booking on the platform.

The rollout will begin with France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, South Africa and Spain on February 7.

As part of the launch, Qatar Airways Cargo will offer a discount scheme to forwarders that meet certain eligibility criteria, resulting in an average saving of $0.06 per kg for the first 20,000 shipments booked via the platform in the rollout countries.

The cargo carrier added that it will implement a number of special promotions later in the year.

Qatar Airways chief officer cargo Guillaume Halleux said: “As a leading global carrier, we rely on constant innovation and digitalisation across all our operations in order to provide our best-in-class customer service.

“During the past months, we have introduced several digitalisation initiatives such as online rate distribution, ad hoc rate automation, track and trace and availability via API.

“The future of air cargo is indeed digital and this change will definitely bring in efficiency across the supply chain.”

Freightos Group chief executive Zvi Schrieber added: “Digitalisation is a crucial step in powering agile supply chains in a rapidly changing world.

“We’re incredibly proud that Qatar Airways Cargo, the largest cargo airline in the world, has selected WebCargo to launch third-party eBookings for forwarders around the world.”
