Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services has added an online cargo reservation platform as it continues to develop its digital offering.

The new platform enables customers to check flight schedules, space availability, loadability of freight and make real-time bookings.

The company also recently launched a mobile app that offers real-time shipment updates and allows users to check flight schedules, submit enquiries, receive notifications when the shipment is ready, book charter flights and track shipments.

Ethiopian Airlines chief executive Tewolde GebreMariam said: “We are committed to start walking the long walk of taking out paper from entire air cargo process by digitalizing the logistics value chain.

“Taking out paper from logistics value chain is not only convenient and hassle free service for customers but also it delivers more efficient operational excellence and achieves long term sustainability goals.

“Our online booking platform will be crucial in empowering direct cargo customers and forwarders with reliable access to our cargo capacity inventory.”

Ethiopian Airlines recently reported its air cargo business is helping it build capacity and profit.
