Canadian carrier WestJet has launched a new stand-alone website, westjetcargo.com in a bid to better tap cargo demand on its fleet of 98 Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. The new site features the ability to book, trace and track cargo shipments individually and in real time, access the most up-to-date shipping guidelines, view a current list of shipping restrictions and embargoes, request waybills and make claims online and receive answers to frequently asked questions.
The launch of a dedicated website is a natural next step for WestJet Cargo, which began working with Exp-Air Cargo Ltd in 2010. This new relationship triggered a number of developments including a new payment structure, a system upgrade and a new sales team. WestJet Cargo currently serves 21 domestic stations with plans to expand into the US and Mexico in the near future.
