Qatar Airways Cargo rolls out webCargo by Freightos throughout the USA

Qatar Airways Cargo announces the further roll out of third-party eBooking platform WebCargo by Freightos across the United States of America.

Forwarders in the USA will be able to conduct eBookings with access to live rates and available capacity on the WebCargo platform. This will further improve their booking experience with the airline, resulting in higher efficiencies and instant responses for confirmation.

The cargo carrier has an extensive network in the United States spanning 12 cities with 145 weekly flights, thus offering customers more than 4,700 tonnes of cargo capacity every week.

Qatar Airways chief officer cargo, Mr. Guillaume Halleux says, “Following our successful launch across Europe, we are glad to introduce WebCargo throughout the United States of America, steadily extending digitalisation across our organisation. We are actively pushing for digitalisation in air freight as it brings in efficiencies and provides multiple benefits for our customers such as 24/7 visibility of price and capacity as well as real time confirmation to name a few.”

Freightos Group CEO Mr. Zvi Schreiber says, “In the past year, the industry has passionately adopted Digital Air Cargo (DAC), with WebCargo by Freightos as the chosen platform, driving 2,000%+ growth in bookings. Today, it’s an honour to expand WebCargo’s partnership with Qatar Airways Cargo to the United States of America, bringing direct access to the world’s number one cargo airline to the world’s economy.”

Since the introduction of WebCargo in February 2021, Qatar Airways Cargo has been receiving high volumes of eBookings via the platform. With this launch in the USA, the total count of countries in the airline’s network on the WebCargo platform will increase to 33, with 12 online stations going live in the United States of America.

Digitalisation is a key pillar of the carrier’s strategy as it moves towards more systems that allow for dynamic pricing, automatic quotations, robotic integration and improved reporting. WebCargo is one of them, and its gradual rollout across the network is one of the many important digitalisation initiatives implemented by Qatar Airways Cargo in recent months.
