Turkish Cargo will soon provide forwarders around the world with the ability to conduct real-time eBookings, access live rates, and see available air cargo capacity through WebCargo, a Freightos Group company. This provides critical agility as air cargo contends with unexpected shifts due to the global pandemic.

As Christian Tesch, Director Airfreight Carrier Relations & Procurement at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics said, “Live access to capacity and price supports our ongoing commitment to provide Hellmann customers with outstanding service. We are delighted to see Turkish Cargo on WebCargo.”

Turkish Cargo will first roll out on WebCargo in Spain and India, and will be quickly followed by roll outs in several more countries. With the airline’s shift to global eBookings, more than 20% of global air cargo capacity will now be digitized, providing more than 2,000 WebCargo forwarders customers across over 10,000 global branches with instant access to capacity and pricing.

Turhan OZEN, Chief Cargo Officer at Turkish Airlines, remarked as follows: “Effective leadership is required to handle the customers constantly diversifying demands accurately across the air cargo industry. As the air cargo brand with one of the widest networks in the world, we focus on digital solutions. We are pleased to partner with WebCargo to provide digital connectivity for our customers as part of our commitment to constant innovation in offering the best service possible.”

“In the past year, eBookings have increased tenfold on WebCargo, making it clear that the future of air cargo is digital. “We’re incredibly proud to partner with Turkish Cargo, one of the most impactful and influential global cargo airlines, to launch eBookings for forwarders around the world.”
