Qatar Airways Cargo recently announced that WebCargo by Freightos will be introduced across the European region* effective 30 June 2021. Forwarders will be able to conduct eBookings with access to live rates and available capacity on the WebCargo platform.
With the implementation of WebCargo across Europe, the total count of countries in the airline’s network on the platform will increase to 32. This will allow customers to further digitalise their experience with the airline in the region, resulting in more process efficiencies and faster market responses.
“Our aim is to gradually roll out WebCargo throughout our global network during the year, providing convenience and transparency to our customers,” remarked Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo, Qatar Airways.
“The hypergrowth of our eBookings in the last few months (up 1,000% year on year) has proven that forwarders are very keen to adopt real-time pricing, capacity, and eBookings, particularly in today’s volatile market,” commented Zvi Schreiber, CEO, Freightos Group.
Digitalisation or digital future is a key pillar of the carrier’s strategy as it moves towards more systems that allow for dynamic pricing, automatic quotations, robotic integration and improved reporting, the airline concluded in a press statement.
