SAS Cargo and Freightos in digital link-up for e-booking

SAS Cargo and WebCargo by Freightos will partner for fully digital e-booking, dynamic rates and specific capacity on the Scandinavian airline.

WebCargo by Freightos will become the first user of SAS Cargo’s digital application programming interface (API) solutions to more than 1,500 freight forwarders and 26,000 unique users around the world.

Leif Rasmussen, president and chief executive at SAS Cargo, said: “We have a vision of making airfreight easier at SAS Cargo, and we know that today’s customer expects a quick and fully digitized customer experience.

 “We believe that the combination of our continuous focus on quality in all our operations and the additional digital connectivity to our already existing online booking platform, will provide extraordinary benefits to our customers.”

WebCargo by Freightos enables direct API connectivity, which means the entire e-booking process happens online. When a freight forwarder selects a rate, the booking is transmitted to the cargo carrier instantly, digitally, without any manual process.

Martin Dellepiane Larsen, head of network and revenue management at SAS Cargo, said: “The partnership with WebCargo by Freightos is a very exciting addition to our own online booking site, through which 80% of our customers book their shipments.

“This expands our visibility worldwide and perfectly builds upon our established digital products and services, like instant booking confirmation, dynamic pricing and a fully automated and digitized document manager, making them available for a broader audience.”

Freightos Group founder and chief executive Zvi Schreiber said of the SAS Cargo Group partnership: “Together we’re improving air cargo for all stakeholders through automatic communication between airlines, GSAs, forwarders and shippers making air cargo more competitive and predictable, helping to expand the world air cargo market.”
