LATAM Cargo Group to provide forwarders with visibility and agility via WebCargo eBookings

Oct 13, 2021

Following a year of rapid Digital Air Cargo (DAC) adoption within the industry, LATAM Cargo Group, South America’s largest operator of air freight capacity, is teaming up with WebCargo, a Freightos Group company. This partnership will provide over 2,500 WebCargo forwarders with real-time eBookings, access to live rates, and updated air cargo capacity on LATAM Cargo Group.

LATAM Cargo Group will roll out on WebCargo beginning in Q1 2022 in Europe, North America, and Latin America, providing thousands of freight forwarders instant access to capacity and pricing. By offering customers the ability to access capacity through its own online platform and third-party platforms like WebCargo by Freightos, LATAM Cargo Group aims to increase transparency for forwarders and increase efficiencies.

Jorge Galvez, VP Marketing and Development at LATAM Cargo remarked: “Through our partnership with WebCargo by Freightos, LATAM Cargo Group is accelerating its efforts to provide customers with visibility and faster cargo bookings, simply and efficiently. This collaboration is an important milestone in LATAM Cargo’s digital roadmap.”

Manel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo added: “It’s been remarkable to see how quickly the industry has embraced Digital Air Cargo (DAC), with eBookings on WebCargo having grown by more than 10X from last year. We look forward to partnering with LATAM Cargo Group and strengthening eBooking adoption across major global airlines, especially at a time when digital connectivity and transparency is more important than ever.”
