Etihad Cargo continues digital drive with CargoAi partnership

By Damian Brett

Etihad Cargo has continued to expand its online offering by placing its capacity on digital booking platform CargoAi.

The Abu Dhabi-based cargo business said that forwarders that use CargoAi will be able to start checking prices, schedules and quotes, and booking space on its flights through the platform from the start of August.

The move is the latest in a series of digital investments for the company and the two companies will connect their systems using Etihad’s latest APIs.

Martin Drew, senior vice president sales & cargo, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Digitalisation has been at the core of Etihad Cargo’s strategy over the last three to five years, and continues to be a focus in driving digitalisation and streamlining processes across the airfreight world.

“Our partnership with CargoAi supports this vision, and provides an additional tool which delivers a rapid and fluid digital booking services platform.”

Matthieu Petot, chief executive of CargoAi, added: “We are fortunate to have the chance to be the first provider to use their latest modern APIs. As cargo capacities worldwide are still restricted, e-marketing the Etihad Cargo offer on CargoAi is clearly a major opportunity for our freight forwarder clients.”

Eithad Cargo also offers its capacity on third-party platforms WebCargo and cargo.one. Meanwhile, forwarders that use the CargoWise freight management platform can also book services through that system.
