Real-time bookings with LATAM Cargo are available for WebCargo customers on 27 lanes with the possibility of connecting in South America.

With LATAM Cargo, carriers representing over 36% of global air cargo capacity are available for booking on WebCargo.

“The industry is shifting towards digital collaboration and as the leading carrier of South America we want to provide customers with reliable and efficient solutions and a broad set of options that allows them to choose what works best for them. As part of our digitalisation roadmap we decided to partner up with WebCargo by Freightos to provide our customers access to our capacity. This collaboration is an important milestone in LATAM Cargo’s digital roadmap,” said Jorge Galvez, senior vice president for marketing and development LATAM Cargo at LATAM group.

“Global trade moves faster than it ever has before,” said Manuel Galindo, chief executive of WebCargo by Freightos. “With innovative partners like LATAM Cargo, forwarders can move at the same pace, improving efficiency across over 100,000 quarterly bookings.”

As Carlos Cheeseman, the owner of Airgroup Miami, a Radiant Logistics Company, said: “Having LATAM on WebCargo and 7LFreight for real-time booking is an excellent addition to facilitate our moves to Latin and South America.”
