New CargoBooking solution delivers instant quoting and booking

New CargoBooking solution delivers instant quoting and booking

A new online tool called CargoBooking.aero supports airlines and their General Sales Agents (GSAs) to deliver instant air cargo quoting and booking with Application Programming Interface (API) integration to freight forwarders.

The solution, powered by global IT service provider and software development company Awery Aviation Software, gives a consolidated view of all connected airlines and GSA prices on possible flight and truck routing options.

“The digital transformation of the air cargo industry is gaining momentum, enhancing efficiency and cost effectiveness across the supply chain,” said Tristan Koch, Awery’s new Chief Commercial Officer.

“Our in-house team has been working together for over 12 years to develop aviation software solutions to support the digitisation of the industry, and with CargoBooking, we are delivering a streamlined user experience connecting capacity and demand.”

CargoBooking provides information in real time on flights and rates facilitating an instant search, quote, compare, and book solution via a customer portal, by email, or API.

Users can review combined filterable results of flight or truck all-in rates from multiple airlines and GSAs with a detailed breakdown of surcharges.

Options include an instant booking request, a SPOT rate request, or saving the price as an option on the quote.

The instant booking request can be done on airline-integrated air waybill stock, and requests are validated and confirmed by the airline or GSA.

In case of no space, an alternative flight is offered to the client for review.

“CargoBooking brings together a wide group of skilled and experienced professionals to deliver a product that leads the way in helping the air cargo industry to embrace and benefit from its digital transformation,” said Vitaly Smilianets, Awery CEO.

“Tristan has brought over 20 years’ experience in air cargo to the team supporting the work of our in-house developers to launch a solution, which facilitates the full air freight business workflow.”

CargoBooking.aero supports customers of all sizes and includes a built-in track and trace facility.
