ANA Cargo expands eBookings reach on WebCargo

ANA Cargo is partnering with WebCargo to provide thousands of forwarders across the world with real-time rates, capacity, and eBookings. ANA Cargo will leverage WebCargo’s uniquely global network of 10,000 forwarding offices to complement their in-house booking portal, as an integral part of their omnichannel strategy to deliver access to products and services.

With the launch, scheduled for the first quarter of 2023, forwarders will gain access ANA Cargo’s fleet of over 200 aircraft across many of ANA Cargo’s 130+ routes that span five continents. Airlines representing over 50% of global air cargo capacity are available for booking on WebCargo, the largest capacity availability on any platform.

“ANA Cargo continues to improve customer experience with the implementation of digital technology. The expansion of our ebooking network through Webcargo’s platform is a large step that moves us forward to this goal. This is an exciting opportunity to use innovation to make an extraordinary, positive impact for our customers and the industry as a whole,” Kenichi Wakiya, Executive Vice President of ANA Cargo, said.

“We are thrilled to join ANA Cargo in delivering a world class booking experience to their customers during these times of market volatility,” Manel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo, a Freightos Group company, said. “We’re continuing to see carrier digitization on WebCargo bring visibility to carriers’ lanes and services that customers may not have been aware of. This new type of reach enables airlines not only to expand their customer base, but enables expansion of existing customer business to new lanes or services for ad hoc or even recurring shipments, translating to added value for carriers and forwarders alike.”
