[ April 30, 2021   //   ]

Turkish Cargo will soon provide global forwarders 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.
Director of airfreight carrier relations and procurement at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Christian Tesch, said, “Live access to capacity and price supports our ongoing commitment to provide Hellman customers with outstanding service. We’re delighted to see Turkish Cargo on Webcargo.”
Turkish Cargo will first roll out WebCargo in Spain and India, and will be quickly followed by roll outs in several more countries. 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.
Turkish Airlines chief cargo officer, Turhan Ozen, added: “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.”

WebCargo chief executive Manel Galindo, concluded: “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.”
