Matthieu PETOT, CEO of CargoAi
Forwarders and users will have the ability to compare LH routes, and best applicable live rates with other cargo carriers integrated with CargoAi, within the same window – this allows quick and easy decisions, enabling their jobs to be simpler and more efficient.
This phase is to ensure all technical integrations work seamlessly in the carrier's preferred markets. Historically, we have not faced any technical challenges during the pilot phase, since we ensure that the implementation is as smooth as possible before launching a pilot. We expect the same with Lufthansa.
We will be delighted to announce news of worldwide go-live with a concrete date after the successful integration in our pilot phase.
Forwarders who have an account with CargoMART (our marketplace) and are in the pilot locations will be able to book freight on Lufthansa as they would for any other carrier currently existing on our platform. If they have any issues, they will notify the customer support team who will assist in resolving the issue.
This will increase the number of routes and the capacity available worldwide.
Since the beginning, carriers have been pleased with the smooth technical integration process.
Our CargoMART marketplace is the only app that allows forwarders to manage 100% of their booking flow including. booking and ‘spot quote request’ for all commodities/WBPs/BUPs. Our accurate tracking API technology shows a complete overview of all shipments throughout the whole transportation chain. CargoINTEL delivers actionable business and revenue intelligence data to our partners, leading to more profitable decisions.
In addition to our technical functionalities, we are 100% committed to helping the industry navigate an era where sustainability and reducing carbon emissions are essential in the industry’s present and future landscape.
We are continually perfecting the functionalities on our marketplace and we will soon be launching additional features. These new features will make the booking process for forwarders even more intuitive: it will be kept within the system without having to go outside the platform, directly to an airline. This will also apply to changes to a booking.
Moreover, we will be launching our sustainability solution in October, which includes metrics that will be an industry-first and revolutionize the way forwarders consider their choices in making greener bookings.
