Portuguese carrier TAP Air Cargo is now hosting its available airfreight capacity on cargo.one, following the integration of its systems with the e-booking platform.
As of this week, freight forwarders can use cargo.one to book TAP’s capacity in key European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy and France.
TAP said its presence on cargo.one follows its recent drive for e-AWB adoption, which is also part of its digitisation strategy.
Miguel de Paiva Gomes, global chief cargo officer at TAP, commented: “Offering customers a first-class service and seamless booking experience from A-Z with the help of technology is one of our key aspirations in our digitalisation strategy.
“Cargo.one empowers us to digitise a crucial part of our value chain and thus, to increase operational efficiency while at the same time reducing substantial costs. Together with this experienced partner, we will be able to drive innovation much faster.”
Moritz Claussen, founder and managing director at cargo.one, added: “TAP Air Cargo is a prime example of an airline that leveraged and augmented its existing systems through collaboration and with a can-do-mindset. Throughout Covid-19, our teams have been working hand in hand to achieve fantastic and tangible results under extraordinary circumstances. The integration process has set another industry benchmark.”
Bernardo Nunes, senior manager for product, services and business development at TAP Air Cargo — and who also led the transformation process on the airline side — said: “Cargo.one enabled us to build upon existing structures and has given us a lot of new functionalities. Together with their integration expert team that took lots of work off our shoulders, we managed to set up a future-proof system”.
