Thai Airways will place its cargo capacity on the WebCargo by Freightos platform to offer forwarders access to real-time booking, pricing and payment services.

Over the next few months, the national carrier of Thailand will integrate its cargo capacities into WebCargo’s platform, said Freightos

In its initial phase, this collaboration will open up Thai Airways’ network to some freight forwarders in AustraliaJapanThailand, and the UK.

Forwarders will be able to book and pay for air cargo directly with WebCargo Pay, an integrated payment solution that enables payments and reconciliations.

“By helping forwarders of different sizes easily book and pay for Thai Airways capacity on WebCargo’s platform, we are not only expanding digital access to one of Asia’s largest air cargo networks but also continuing our mission to help evolve how cargo bookings and payments are handled,” said Manuel Galindo, chief revenue officer of Freightos.

“With WebCargo eBooking and Pay, Thai Airways will be able to expand their audience and provide their customers with smooth access to flexible credit and payment options, and to complete their bookings in seconds.”

Chirachet Chanawiset, head of cargo & mail commercial, Thai Airways Cargo, said: “Our collaboration with WebCargo by Freightos is a key milestone in our digital transformation journey. With WebCargo Pay, we are excited to reach a broader audience and empower a wider array of freight forwarders to grow their businesses, easily and securely.”

WebCargo has been steadily adding airlines to its booking and payment platform in recent months. The latest recruits to the platform include US airline United Cargo, UK-headquartered Virgin Atlantic Cargo and Singapore Airlines.

It has also recently expanded its partnership with Delta Cargo.
