JetBlue Cargo, via AeroNex Cargo, is to roll out access to instant pricing, booking and payments for forwarders in the US on the WebCargo by Freightos cargo booking platform.
JetBlue operates a fleet of Airbus A320 and A321s to offer one-day, two-day and three-day cargo service across more than ten North American airports. With WebCargo, forwarders will be able to improve air cargo efficiency by accessing an aggregation of carriers, the company said.
The partnership will help forwarders provide more efficient and competitive service for customers, it added. Combined with WebCargo Pay, WebCargo’s integrated payment solution, forwarders are expected to be able to further improve booking efficiency.
“With air cargo being the fastest growing business segment in the aviation industry during and after the pandemic, taking this step of joining the WebCargo platform will allow JetBlue Cargo customers to access their cargo bookings in a matter of seconds,” said Patricio Sepulveda, founder and CEO of AeroNex Cargo, JetBlue’s exclusive cargo representative.
“I am confident that with a great partner like WebCargo it will allow us to better serve our customers. We are excited to participate in this technological tendency that is the beginning of the future of online cargo bookings.”
WebCargo’s VP global business development Camilo Garcia commented: “Moving air cargo efficiently and competitively is critical for increasingly complex supply chains. We’re excited to partner with JetBlue and AeroNex Cargo to scale eBookings and payments across our network of over 10,000 forwarding offices, and especially to our 7LFreight users in North America.”
