TUI, Condor and SunClass Airlines expand e-cargo capabilities
07 / 12 / 2020
Leisure airlines TUI, Condor and SunClass Airlines have expand their digital booking capabilities for cargo customers through CargoAi and Webcargo.
The airlines’ GSSA, ECS Group, collaborated with the carriers and the two digital platforms as part of the roll out.
Matthieu Petot (pictured), chief executive of CargoAi, explained: “These three airlines offer a multitude of destinations. Our users can now benefit from this by reserving their capacities on our platform in a few seconds.”
He added: “Our customers need us to support them in new ways to maximise their income, and digitising the distribution processes is one of them. We therefore connect to all major e-booking platforms in the market to sell the cargo capacities of airlines under total cargo management contract in a more efficient way.”
WebCargo said that the move comes as supply chain unpredictability has led to a five-fold increase in e-bookings this year.
“Now more than ever, our customers demand rapid and accurate services,” said Cédric Millet, ECS chief strategy & digital officer.
“This is why we are connecting to all the leading digital platforms like WebCargo, expanding our digital reach by distributing online the capacity of our airline customers managed under a Total
Cargo Management contract.”
WebCargo also pointed out that as passenger travel resumes, leisure airlines expect to resume more frequent and sustainable services, increasing air cargo capacity.
“We are delighted to add Condor, TUI, and SunClass Airlines to WebCargo, which offers the largest selection of Digital Air Cargo (DAC)-enabled airlines” said Manel Galindo, WebCargo chief executive.
“Together, we are committed to providing the necessary tools for carriers to manage fast-changing rates and capacity, and provide their customers with the best possible service.”
This is not the airlines’ first move in the digital cargo booking space, in November the carriers announced a partnership with cargo.one.
Last week, CargoAi partnered with IBS Software to enable its customers to extend their presence in new and existing markets and scale up their cargo revenues.
