As part of the CargoWise Carrier Connectivity Program, CargoWise customers, which include 24 of the 25 largest global freight forwarders worldwide, now have visibility of and efficient access to Avianca cargo’s schedules, capacity and booking to manage the entire lifecycle of a shipment through to final execution and digital transmission of the Master Air Waybill, all without leaving CargoWise.

Avianca Cargo is a region leader and the leading operator in several markets in the Americas, with around 200 weekly freighter flights and more than 1,300 passenger flights per week. It serves more than 70 destinations with one of the largest networks in America, and the A330F is the fleet with the lowest environmental impact in the region.

Additionally, it´s the first airline in the Americas to obtain all four IATA CEIV certifications, including Pharma, Fresh and Lithium Batteries; in 2023, it was recognised as a top global leader in air cargo logistics for perishables handling by STAT Times and best cargo airline in the Americas by the Air Cargo News Awards.

“We constantly strive to make it easier and more efficient for freight forwarders to do business with Avianca cargo – whether transporting flowers, medicines, or manufactured goods. The seamless data transmission with CargoWise delivers an efficient and simplified booking experience for CargoWise customers to do business on our network,” said Paula Marcela Torres, Transformation Manager at Avianca Cargo.

Jorre Cobelens, Vice President – Logistics Data and Connectivity, WiseTech Global, said: “Avianca cargo plays an important role as a hub for all cargo going to and from South America. Avianca Cargo’s emphasis on special cargo, real-time access to capacity and route data, and the ability to efficiently book and manage shipments without leaving CargoWise is critical to freight forwarders with perishable cargo. Direct data connections with air freight airlines replace manual intervention with straight through digital processing to drive greater efficiency and accuracy across the supply chain.”
