Airfreight specialist Etihad Cargo has signed a distribution agreement with cargo.one, a multi-airline e-booking platform.
A key driver in its commitment to provide customers with a best-in-class booking experience, the cargo.one agreement empowers Etihad Cargo to offer an additional avenue for bookings on available cargo capacity to a wider pool of European customers.
Abdulla Mohamed Shadid, Etihad Aviation Group’s Managing Director of Cargo and Logistics Services said: “Etihad Cargo’s ambition to lead the industry into a new digital era has driven significant investment in our digitalisation programme across back of house and customer facing platforms in the last 12 months. This landmark partnership with cargo.one builds on the success we have achieved on our own online platform, etihadcargo.com, which now represents 38 per cent of our bookings.
“Our digital investment enabled us to rapidly build the required API connectivity to seamlessly link to the cargo.one platform. Through cargo.one we will offer global capacity to users on new routings and to new destinations across our extensive worldwide network, and provide our own customers with additional booking choice.”
Serving more than 300 freight forwarding companies across Europe, cargo.one has been growing its customer base at a rate of more than 20 per cent month on month.
