Air Bridge Cargo has brought its real-time pricing and booking capabilities completely online through a partnership with WebCargo, becoming the first freighter operator to offer e-booking to 2,000 logistics providers.

Freight forwarders can now price and book cargo digitally, with real-time capacity visibility, for almost 40 routes between North America, Asia, and Europe.

This bold step is seen as extremely timely, since logistics providers and importers continue to play a vital role in keeping global supply chains running during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to rapid capacity and pricing fluctuations, requiring the combination of real-time information and cargo capacity.

Air Bridge Cargo has risen to this challenge, joining other leading airlines to bring air cargo online. Access to digital, real-time air cargo has become critical as logistics providers work to keep global goods moving. However, rapid pricing changes continue to be a major barrier to ensuring full cargo capacity. With over 30% of the world’s air cargo volumes being managed by WebCargo customers, the ability to book cargo in real time is fast becoming a necessity.
