Robert Van de Weg, VP Sales and Marketing for Volga-Dnepr Group comments: “Offering our capacities on cargo.one enables us to meet growing customers’ demands for digital solutions and to give forwarders of all sizes access to our large global freighter network”. “Being capable now to better reach small and medium sized forwarders through cargo.one will also help us increase our shortterm capacity sales and thus our load factors, to grow even more sustainably.” adds David Kerr, Chief Executive Officer of CLA.
The move to partner up with cargo.one is highly welcome by freight forwarders. Hauke Langert, CEO Airfreight at Skyline Express International: “Gaining faster and more efficient access to freighter capacities is a real game-changer. cargo.one now allows us to have 24/7 access to CLA and ABC capacities and enables us to serve our customers and partners based on real time rates.” This notion is echoed by Steffen Löbert, Managing Director at CS4 Logistics: “We highly welcome the partnership and looking forward expand our relationship with ABC and CLA because of the much easier access now.“
“We are very excited to enable this industry-first. ABC and CLA are spearheading innovation for all-cargo airlines to become more digital and thus customer-centric. And, they are now able to access the untapped market of smaller and medium sized forwarders that were previously not able to book with them. This will help them to further up their sales and load factors across network”, ads Moritz Claussen, managing director and founder of cargo.one.
The offering of AirBridgeCargo and CargoLogicAir capacities is planned to go live later this summer after completion of the integration of the carriers’ in-house systems with cargo.one.
