Turkish Cargo will soon provide forwarders around the world with the ability to conduct real-time e-bookings, 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.

Christian Tesch, director of airfreight carrier relations & procurement at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics said, “Live access to capacity and price supports our ongoing commitment to providing Hellmann 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 rollouts in several more countries. With the airline’s shift to global e-bookings, more than 20 percent 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 at Turkish Airlines, said, “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.”

Manuel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo, said, “In the past year, e-bookings have increased tenfold on WebCargo, making it clear that the future of air cargo is digital. We’re incredibly proud to partner with Turkish Cargo, one of the most impactful and influential global cargo airlines, to launch e-bookings for forwarders around the world.”
