Cargo.one launches tool to book passively cooled shipments
01 / 07 / 2020
Online airfreight booking platform cargo.one has launched a new product category called Passive Temp Control that enables freight forwarders to compare quotes and book passively cooled shipments, such as pharmaceuticals, in four different temperature ranges.
Oliver Neumann, founder and managing director at cargo.one, explained further: “The mission of cargo.one is to make the air cargo markets more productive and thus more successful. Extending the range of commodities on the platform is an exciting next step towards fulfilling our mission.
“This wouldn’t have been possible without the trust of our partner airlines, who experience our performance as a key revenue stream first hand and have thus always supported our desire to innovate. The result is a uniquely simple and quick way to book passively cooled shipments.”
Cargo.one said its existing partners such as Etihad Cargo, AirBridgeCargo (ABC) and Lufthansa Cargo have already adopted Passive Temp Control and “took their passively cooled product offering online, directly accessing forwarder demand for high-yield shipments in all major European markets at launch”.
Fabrice Pierre Augustin Panza, product manager of cool chain solutions at Etihad Cargo, commented: “Offering our TempCheck product online on cargo.one is a great way to market and sell our pharma product to new and existing customers and to create awareness for crucial product characteristics, such as our CEIV certification, at the time of booking.”
Fabian Kapteina from Agility Logistics in Frankfurt, added: “Our Life Science team consults the comprehensive and easy to use cargo.one platform for passively cooled shipments to get an immediate overview on possible airline offerings, supporting us to build customer specific and tailor made solutions.”
