Turkish Cargo offering forwarders eBookings on WebCargo
Turkish Cargo stays agile in a volatile air cargo environment by providing forwarders with real-time pricing, capacity, and eBookings via WebCargo.
Turkish Cargo will soon provide global forwarders the ability to conduct real-time eBookings, access live rates, and see available air cargo capacity through WebCargo, a Freightos Group company. This provides critical agility as air cargo contends with unexpected shifts due to the global pandemic.
As Christian Tesch, Director Airfreigt Carrier Relations & Procurement at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics said, “Live access to capacity and price supports our ongoing commitment to provide Hellman customers with outstanding service. We’re delighted to see Turkish Cargo on Webcargo.”
Turkish Cargo will first roll out on WebCargo in Spain and India, and will be quickly followed by roll outs in several more countries. With the airline’s shift to global eBookings, more than 20% of global air cargo capacity will now be digitized, providing more than 2,000 WebCargo forwarders customers across over 10,000 global branches with instant access to capacity and pricing.
Turhan OZEN, Chief Cargo Officer, Turkish Airlines remarked as follows; “Effective leadership is required to handle the customers constantly diversifying demands accurately across the air cargo industry. As the air cargo brand with one of the widest networks in the world, we focus on digital solutions. We are pleased to partner with WebCargo to provide digital connectivity for our customers as part of our commitment to constant innovation in offering the best service possible.”
