Turkish Cargo has signed up with Freightos Group’s WebCargo and is set to start selling capacity on the e-booking platform in Spain and India, with further rollouts to several countries, according to a press release.
The airline said that with its shift to e-bookings, more than 20 percent of its global air cargo capacity will now be digitized, providing more than 2,000 forwarders on WebCargo with instant access to capacity and pricing.
For shippers and forwarders, this provides critical agility, particularly as air freight contends with unexpected shifts due to the global pandemic, the carrier noted.
Turhan OZEN, cargo chief at Turkish Airlines, commented: “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.”
Last year Turkish Cargo unveiled CARGY, the artificial intelligence chatbot that allows users to inquire about the status of their cargo 24/7.
