WebCargo by Freightos has partnered with three Chinese master loaders to offer global forwarders real-time access to China’s air cargo export capacity.

The cargo booking and payment platform’s deal allows thousands of forwarders across Europe and North America to compare prices, book and pay across Sinotrans Global E-commerce Logistics (Sinoair), CIMC Anda Shun International Logistics Co., Ltd. (CIMC Anda Shun) and Sinotech Logistics (Sinotech).

“This master loader capacity complements capacity that is already available on WebCargo directly from major airlines, giving freight forwarders maximum choice in the critical ex-China routes, and saving time and money. Unlike many airlines, these master loaders do not require forwarders to be IATA cargo agents,” said WebCargo.

Historically, China’s master loaders would offer their services to local forwarders who would then resell capacity to overseas forwarders looking to import goods from China

Forwarders around the world, including the 3,500 freight forwarders in over 10,000 offices that already use WebCargo, will now gain direct access to leading master loaders operating digitally in this region.

WebCargo chief executive Manel Galindo said by the end of the first quarter: We have on-boarded three Chinese master loaders, Sinoair, CIMC Anda Shun and Sinotech. No more language or time zone barriers, middlemen or costly delays.

“Going forward, forwarders will have cross-border access to China, democratizing access to global air cargo on this key trade lane.”

Currently, shipments originating in China represent one of the largest segments of global air cargo, accounting for 7.3m metric tons out of a global air cargo market of 65.7m metric tons.
