American Airlines Cargo is embracing Digital Cargo, providing over 10,000 global forwarders with access to live rates, capacity, and instant eBookings through a partnership with WebCargo, a Freightos group company. With widespread supply chain disruptions and clogged ports creating chaos for shippers, more customers are looking to air cargo for fast and reliable global shipping. This partnership will help support the air cargo industry by offering customers increased service options and reliability despite these challenging conditions.

Bookings on American Airlines Cargo, one of the top carriers in North America, will be available via WebCargo’s platform across parts of Europe and North America in the first half of 2022 before expanding to other parts of the globe later in the year. With the pricing and capacity transparency offered by WebCargo, American can offer immediate booking options to even more customers and better support industry demand through the platform’s accessible, real-time data offering. 

“Over the last two years, e-commerce volume has surged and demand for global freight has increased. American Airlines Cargo has continued to adapt and innovate in order to deliver excellent customer service, and the digital solutions provided by WebCargo create another important step forward in ensuring continued connectivity and visibility for customers,” said Jessica Tyler, President of American Airlines Cargo.

Manel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo added: “At WebCargo, we feel extremely grateful to be a part of the industry’s shift towards digitalization. We are proud of our role as the world’s largest global freight booking platform and are immensely gratified that American Airlines Cargo chose to begin offering digital air cargo booking first on the WebCargo platform. We look forward to expanding eBooking adoption across North America, a market which has been especially stretched due to supply chain issues and is ready for faster, more reliable digital solutions.”

The two companies are eager to see how their partnership will help modernize the air cargo industry and expand cargo capacity opportunities to even more customers around the globe.
