- MASkargo, the cargo business unit of the Malaysia Aviation Group, becomes the first carrier in the APAC region to distribute its global capacity on the www.CargoAi.co digital air cargo solution platform, thereby positioning itself as leader and pioneer in the region.
- Freight forwarders can now benefit from e-Quote and e-Booking services across the carrier’s global network of more than 100 destinations and over six continents.
- The integration was just finalised after the start of the partnership in September 2021 and the MASkargo product is now live and bookable on CargoAi.
From its hub in Kuala Lumpur, MASkargo is significantly accelerating the digitalisation of air cargo in the APAC region by offering all of its worldwide cargo capacity, belly and freighters on www.CargoAi.co. The new synergy between CargoAi and MASkargo will open up a more extensive network to all forwarding agents worldwide.
“The fact that MASkargo has chosen CargoAi as its digital distribution platform is a real sign of recognition and trust. We’ve developed digital air cargo solutions specifically for the APAC market, and it is an honour to offer our services to this major carrier. MASkargo is hitting hard with this global rollout and is clearly setting the trend for other airlines in the region,” states Matthieu Petot, CEO of CargoAi.
Digitalisation of procurement and distribution processes is a major trend and has just begun to be implemented in Asian airlines.
“We are a dynamic airline with a particularly dense network, especially in Asia with about 50 destinations. CargoAi’s choice is therefore strategic. The platform is based in Singapore and has a privileged link with Asia Pacific. This is a considerable advantage for us which makes all the difference. As we expand our digital reach and to complement our current offerings, CargoAi’s specific solutions for the market make them our strategic choice partner”, explains Mark Jason Thomas, MASkargo’s Chief Commercial Officer.
This cooperation consolidates the leading positions of CargoAi and MASkargo in digitalisation in Asia-Pacific.
