From mid 2023, Air Europa Cargo customers will get to enjoy the efficiency of an end-to-end eBooking platform, complete with sustainability and financing features. Air Europa Cargo has chosen to launch its platform using CargoGATE, CargoAi’s white-label solution for airlines looking to develop and maintain their own booking portals.
Air Europa Cargo has chosen to digitalise its offering using CargoGATE due to its seamless "plug and play" integration; the development phase is expected to take just under 6 months for its mid year launch. The platform will enable Air Europa’s freight forwarders to search, book, track, and pay for all their shipments on Air Europa within minutes on the same interface. The payment functionality and CO2 tracking and reduction will be respectively powered by CargoAi’s recently launched CargoWALLET and Cargo2ZERO solutions.
Not only will the platform be entirely branded according to Air Europa Cargo’s guidelines, but the technical maintenance will also be fronted by CargoAi, allowing Air Europa Cargo customers to automatically benefit from all the latest features and improvements that are added on, such as Modify Booking or Advance Booking features which CargoAi has on its roadmap.
“We chose to partner with CargoAi to accelerate our digital adoption as we were looking for a solution and partner that presented minimal IT investment, accelerated deployment, and low long-term maintenance requirements from our side. CargoGATE ticks those boxes. We tested their existing application which is user friendly, and we believe this user experience will drive efficiencies for our existing customers, and increase loyalty to the Air Europa Cargo booking experience.”
The worldwide launch of Air Europa Cargo’s eBooking platform will cover all of Air Europa Cargo’s products, except for Valuables. Due to the specific handling restrictions and limited request from its customers, freight forwarders booking this type of cargo will need to contact Air Europa Cargo directly.
“We are proud to have been chosen by Air Europa Cargo for their digital adoption and excited that they have chosen to integrate the full suite of our offering including our sustainability and payment solutions. This partnership also allows the simultaneous benefit to have Air Europa Cargo schedules and capacity available on our digital marketplace application, CargoMART, allowing Air Europa Cargo to be booked by the 8000+ forwarders that we currently have on our digital marketplace.”
With this integration, users of CargoMART will be able to search, book and pay (using CargoWALLET) for all of Air Europa Cargo’s worldwide routes from mid-2023.
Founded in 2018, it is the Air Europa airline business unit dedicated to the delivery of air cargo services. Its objective is to bring differentiation and innovation to freight transport, offering its customers the highest quality and guarantee throughout the entire logistics chain. Air Europa Cargo places the commitment to the customer at the core of its proposal, offering a wide range of options, from heavy cargo to those requiring the application of special control measures, such as the transport of pharmaceutical products or live animals. The unit benefits from one of the most modern and efficient fleets in the sector, consisting entirely of Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 737 models, with which it provides cargo services on all Air Europa routes in Spain, the rest of Europe and the Americas.
