Online air cargo booking portal WebCargo by Freightos has integrated digital insurance service Breeze onto the platform.

The integration will give WebCargo’s forwarder users the option of adding insurance when they make a booking.

“With this collaboration, freight forwarders will have instant access to an insurance quote when they place a booking, removing the need to source insurance separately and streamlining the entire process,” Breeze said in a press release.

The service will be available for forwarders in the US and UK.

“Forwarders rely on WebCargo to book hundreds of thousands of shipments every quarter,” said Manuel Galindo, chief revenue officer, Freightos.

“By partnering with outstanding companies like Breeze, we’re excited to add more services to our platform. This allows forwarders to focus on what matters most — customer relationships — rather than time-consuming pricing calls for services like insurance.”

Matthew Phillips, Breeze’s chief commercial officer, added: “Between 60% and 80% of global cargo is estimated to be un-or-under-insured. Our collaboration with Freightos empowers its customers to make informed decisions about insuring their cargo in a cost-effective and timely manner.”

“We are on a mission to digitise the cargo insurance process and we share Freightos’ vision to make international shipping faster, more cost-effective, embedded, and more reliable using a data-driven approach powered by technology.”
