Maersk has launched a “fully digital solution” for airfreight that it said offers customers “instant prices”.

The digital solution means that Maersk’s customers can now book air cargo shipments for any of 70,000 airport pairings across more than 90 countries around the world. 

“The new online solution available on Maersk.com provides customers with an option to book their air cargo requirements through a simple online tool that will provide customers with instant prices for as many as 70,000 connections between virtually all relevant airports globally,” said Maersk.

“In today’s age, where volatility and uncertainty have become perpetual potential threats to the global supply chains, our customers are looking for agility and resilience that allows them to make quick decisions around the movement of their cargo across borders. By booking with us on Maersk.com, our customers get instant prices, and the transparency allows them to make informed decisions,” said Darryl Judd, regional head of airfreight for Maersk in the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Africa.

The new service also enables  customers to add Maersk’s customs services for easier customs clearance and tracking.

Maersk recently said it would now consider making an offer for top-4 airfreight forwarder DB Schenker after previously dismissing the idea.
