Top South American air freight carrier embraces Digital Air Cargo, as first Latin American airline, providing forwarders with real-time pricing, capacity, and eBookings via WebCargo.
Miami/Barcelona – Following a year of rapid Digital Air Cargo (DAC) adoption within the industry, LATAM Cargo Group, South America’s largest operator of air freight capacity, is teaming up with WebCargo, a Freightos Group company. This partnership will provide over 2,500 WebCargo forwarders with real-time eBookings, access to live rates, and updated air cargo capacity on LATAM Cargo Group.
LATAM Cargo Group will roll out on WebCargo beginning in Q1 2022 in Europe, North America, and Latin America, providing thousands of freight forwarders instant access to capacity and pricing. By offering customers the ability to access capacity through its own online platform and third-party platforms like WebCargo by Freightos, LATAM Cargo Group aims to increase transparency for forwarders and increase efficiencies.
Through our partnership with WebCargo by Freightos, LATAM Cargo Group is accelerating its efforts to provide customers with visibility and faster cargo bookings, simply and efficiently. This collaboration is an important milestone in LATAM Cargo’s digital roadmap.Jorge Galvez,
