Delta Cargo partners with Freightos’ WebCargo and 7LFreight to offer real-time digital air cargo quotes and bookings

Mar 26, 2024

WebCargo by Freightos, a leading independent booking and payment platform for the international freight industry, has announced a new collaboration with Delta Cargo, enhancing its offering to freight forwarders on Freightos’ WebCargo and 7LFreight platforms via expanded access to real-time digital pricing and booking options for Delta Cargo’s U.S. export and U.S. domestic air cargo capacity.

Delta Cargo is a leading air cargo belly carrier based in the United States, and their general cargo products and tariff fares have been available for eBooking on WebCargo since 2020. Building on recent technology-driven enhancements that saw Delta Cargo bookings on the platform grow by close to 3X year-over-year, the airline is now expanding the availability of its U.S. export and U.S. domestic fares and capacity on the platform.

7LFreight and WebCargo customers now have access to real-time quotes and capacity for Delta Air Lines’ extensive global network out of the United States, reaching more than 250 destinations worldwide. This collaboration also expands the products and services available for booking on the platforms, including Delta Cargo’s DASH® Heavy for the U.S. domestic market, as well as their General freight and Express Heavy products for U.S. export shipments.

"The combination of global and domestic air cargo, particularly in the United States, is a game-changer for more efficient global trade. 7LFreight by Freightos already offers digital booking of domestic U.S. LTL trucking, and today we’re excited to offer instant transparent booking of air cargo from the U.S. across Delta Air Lines’ global network," said Zvi Schreiber, CEO of Freightos. "This is another step in improving global freight for forwarders of all sizes, reducing cost, delays and uncertainty.”

Delta Cargo's Director of Pricing and Revenue Management, Sebastian Kunze said, “Our partnership with Freightos leverages their significant digital reach to accelerate Delta Cargo’s vision for providing comprehensive air freight solutions to our global customers. Technology-driven innovation like this allows us to continue to diversify our already robust offering to the air cargo market. WebCargo and 7LFreight’s collaborative approach makes them prime partners, and we look forward to continuing to grow together.”

Brennan O'Dowd, CEO of 7LFreight by Freightos, added, "We're thrilled to enhance our offering of Delta Cargo products and fares on the 7LFreight platform. Our client base consists largely of U.S.-based freight forwarders. Not only does Delta Cargo's presence on 7LFreight allow it to reach our extensive user base directly, it also greatly simplifies the booking process for 7LFreight users, who can now access Delta Cargo's products seamlessly within the 7LFreight shopping experience."
