WebCargo by Freightos, the leading digital booking and payment platform, is excited to announce additional coverage expansion on the platform via a partnership with one of Euroasian’s partner airlines. This alliance unlocks real-time pricing and booking for United Kingdom-based forwarders, independent of their IATA status, while leveraging WebCargo’s unique payment-handling solution. Boasting thousands of bookings every month on WebCargo, the United Kingdom is a top ten country with regards to adoption of eBookings, playing a significant role in the hundreds of thousands of quarterly bookings placed via the Freightos Group’s platform.
Under this partnership, WebCargo will handle select Euroasian cargo bookings from the United Kingdom, paving the way for bookings and payments with both IATA and non-IATA CASS forwarders. Beyond the ability for a range of forwarders to book and pay instantly, this also reflects the agility of carrier digitization, with GSSAs joining carriers to gain access to broader markets with Digital Air Cargo.
“Our partnership with Euroasian further expands sales opportunities by setting a precedent for future collaborations with other GSSAs and providing inclusive booking solutions for all forwarders,” said Julien Triay, Sales Director at WebCargo. “Until now, freight forwarders with IATA status were the primary beneficiaries of digital booking solutions. With this alliance, ex UK to Azerbaijan will be available to all freight forwarders, irrespective of their IATA status, eliminating unnecessary barriers. Further, by shifting away from the traditional IATA CASS billing model, WebCargo enables direct payments between the parties involved, transforming the payment process into a streamlined and transparent experience.“
“Euroasian is excited to embark on this innovative partnership with WebCargo. We’re a forward-thinking industry player looking to set the stage for a more inclusive and digitized future for the cargo logistics industry,” said Gustavo Mundel, Managing Director at Euroasian UK.
