Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the latest airline to join online platform cargo.one and offer its cargo customers e-booking capabilities. Furthermore, the airline will profit from cargo.one’s extensive customer base in Europe and thus, be able expand its presence in key cargo markets.
“Partnering with leading online booking platform cargo.one will help to accelerate our ambition to digitally transform our business within the coming years and to focus even more on our customer needs,” said senior vice president of ANA, Toshiaki Toyama.
“With cargo.one we enable freight forwarders to book our capacity offers in a fast and frictionless manner, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
Digital booking platform cargo.one has been accelerating its growth by leveraging network effects over the past year.
In 2019, the platform distributed more than 2.2 million instantly bookable real-time offers to customers – averaging more than 6,000 a day.
With each new airline joining the platform, the technology company sees a strong increase in bookings per user.
ANA’s strong network in Asia will boost overall capacities available to cargo.one customers on important trade lanes and will thus help to add to the digital platform’s monthly growth rate of on average 20 per cent.
“As cargo.one continues to expand rapidly we are looking forward to adding even more capacity on major trade lanes to Asia,” said managing director of cargo.one, Moritz Claussen.
“We are very happy to welcome major Asian carrier ANA to the platform and to support the airline to extend its reach into the European market while offering a first-class booking experience to customers.”
ANA and cargo.one successfully kicked-off the integration of their core systems in mid-January and are looking forward to making ANA cargo capacity available in the early second quarter of 2020.
