IAG Cargo is now directly integrated with WiseTech Global’s logistics platform CargoWise to enable freight forwarders to efficiently choose, book, confirm and change shipments, in real time.

Direct data connection with IAG Cargo’s operational data allows CargoWise customers direct access to schedules, dynamic rates, capacity and allotment bookings.

The integration is designed to allow CargoWise users to easily change digital bookings without leaving the application, supporting IAG Cargo’s Destination Digital strategy.

John Cheetham, chief commercial officer at IAG Cargo, said: “Connecting through CargoWise is another exciting partnership strengthening the digital development of IAG Cargo. This partnership is the latest step in our journey to transform the way we do business, making it easier than ever for CargoWise customers to book their freight directly with IAG Cargo.”

Jorre Cobelens, vice president – logistics data and connectivity, WiseTech Global, said “We are pleased that IAG Cargo has joined the growing group of leading cargo carriers that integrate with CargoWise, supporting our industry digitalisation and integration strategy.

“This direct digital data exchange helps increase data security, data quality and simplifies the eBooking process between parties. CargoWise customers, including ten of the top 25 global freight forwarders who have either completed, or are in progress of, global rollouts of the CargoWise platform, will have access to IAG’s dynamic rates, schedules and services for key routes between Europe, Asia Pacific, and North- and South-America fulfilling an important part of our global network needs.”

IAG Cargo uses the belly capacity of passenger aircraft belonging to parent group International Airlines Group (IAG), which consists of British Airways, Iberia, Vueling, Aer Lingus and LEVEL.
