Avianca Cargo has listed its capacity on digital air cargo capacity exchange Airblox.

This will enable thousands of freight forwarders to book capacity on Avianca Cargo’s flights weeks or months in advance, within minutes. 

Airblox said in an update on LinkedIn: “Currently, you can secure lanes between Miami (MIA) – Bogotoa (BOG), London Heathrow (LHR)-BOG, Madrid (MAD)-BOG, and more.” 

Brian Kolb, vice president of strategy at Airblox, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Avianca Cargo to the Airblox platform. With its outstanding reputation for customer service and innovation, the company is paving the way for others, and we look forward to a long partnership.”

“We are very excited to be partnering with Airblox,” said Leonel Ortiz, innovation and transformation director at Avianca Cargo. “We want to continue finding new ways to do business and offer different and innovative solutions to our customers. So, this alliance will allow us to continue to deliver high levels of service and greater flexibility when it comes to our capacity and lanes.”

Airblox is an online hub for the air cargo market where forwarders can search and negotiate contract rates while accessing financial solutions.

The platform provides freight forwarders with instant access to multiple airlines’ capacities, the ability to book days or months in advance, and financial solutions with payment extension options.

Airblox launched a live feed of global airfreight scheduled flight capacity for its electronic Block Space Agreement (eBSA) booking service in May last year.
