CargoAi announces strategic technology partnership with Chain.io to facilitate instant bookings and more from TMS systems.
CargoAi, airfreight’s fastest growing digital enabler, and Chain.io, the leading cloud-based integration platform that connects partners across the global supply chain, announced a strategic technology partnership that will supercharge the freight forwarder experience. The partnership will allow most large and medium-sized freight forwarders on Chain.io’s network to easily connect to CargoAi’s platform to make instant bookings to the GSAs and airlines, while remaining on their own TMS.
“These functionalities were requested by most of our existing users. We are delighted to solidify this strategic partnership with Chain.io to enable new efficiency gains and drastically improve the visibility of our airline partners around the world.”
The CargoAi platform provides a simple end-to-end interface for freight forwarders to make quotes, schedules, bookings, shipments, tracking, purchase orders, as well as reporting capabilities. With the addition of Chain.io, users can now complete the same experience within their TMS system, without navigating between multiple airline websites or making different phone calls.
"Our partnership with CargoAi extends the powerful network we offer to freight forwarders. Technology is more impactful when it doesn't live in silos, so the ability to make instant bookings with CargoAi and get air visibility from within a TMS will give forwarders more efficiency and flexibility."
The partnership will commence with Rates, Capacity, eBooking and Tracking information as well as CO2 calculation, bringing modern capabilities to the TMS, and enabling airlines and GSAs who are live on CargoAi to be directly accessible and visible.
Launched in 2019, CargoAi is on a mission to bring the best available technologies to airfreight. Cloud native and with an API-first architecture, the company is closing the technology gap and driving the enablement of an efficient and connected airfreight ecosystem.
CargoAi offers a complete range of digital air cargo solutions to freight forwarders, airlines and GSAs, including a SaaS booking application available either as CargoMART and under CargoGATE, CargoCONNECT that integrates directly into TMS and ERP systems, CargoINTEL, an AI-powered Cargo Business Intelligence, as well as Cargo2ZERO, an integrated Sustainability solution, that spans the entire portfolio.
Using the CargoAi solutions, forwarders are empowered to drive every stage of the air freight procurement process with greater efficiency and visibility- from planning, booking, and executing shipments right through to monitoring cargo deliveries. The gains in efficiency, customer reach and business opportunities directly translate to top and bottom-line impact for carrier partners.
