Partners in digital sales success
Singapore Airlines Cargo and cargo.one are working together to combine expertise and tailor cargo.one’s technology to the airline’s exact needs. As part of its data-driven decision-making, the airline can now leverage the real-time data feeds and market insights and benchmarks from cargo.one360 – cargo.one’s data and analytics solution. The facility greatly helps airlines to understand customer choice data and improve revenue management and pricing.
In addition to its strong technical expertise earned across many airline integrations, cargo.one is proficient in steering digital business growth.

With 25 years experience in the region, he has an extensive background in working with airlines and airports to increase performance through effective technology transformations.
Fabrice Godeau comments, “I am thrilled to come onboard cargo.one to help supercharge the future of air cargo and particularly in the Asia Pacific region. With an expert team dedicated to driving airline digital sales growth, we will be supporting Singapore Airlines Cargo and other airlines in the region – creating a new stream of revenues and enhancing service delivery through digital distribution.”
In the first phase, from July 2022 freight forwarders will have access to Singapore Airlines Cargo’s capacity using the cargo.one marketplace. The partnership provides cargo.one users with additional access to sought-after Asian destinations such as Singapore, Bangkok, Shanghai, and Manila.
