LATAM Airlines Group has announced a new strategic relationship between its cargo subsidiaries and sales platform cargo.one, to make the carrier’s network available for instant booking on the cargo.one platform.
The move is part of LATAM Cargo’s steps towards digitalisation and to diversify their distribution channels.
Commenting on the announcement, LATAM Cargo’s chief executive officer Andres Bianchi said: “We want to provide customers with reliable and efficient solutions and a broad set of options that allows them to choose what works best for them.
“The strategic collaboration with caro.one enables expansion into an established, high performing digital marketplace, and to meet and exceed clients’ requirements for complete visibility and control in the booking process of the shipments.
“Cargo.one not only delivers on the demand for customer self-services, but also offers airlines unrivalled continuous improvement with additional services such as its cargo.one360 data analysis platform.”
Cargo.one’s co-founder and managing director Moritz Claussen added: “Our latest global expansion sees us partnering with a renowned group of cargo carriers as dedicated to digital excellence as we are. The timing could not be more opportune either as the LATAM Cargo carriers are nearly doubling their B767 freighter fleet over the next two years, and will certainly benefit from cargo.one’s ability to deliver increased customer volumes, optimized load factors and the ability to assess new routes.”
