CMA CGM Cargo goes live on CargoAi

CargoAi, airfreight’s fastest growing digital enabler, closes off a great 2022 with instant eBooking made on 53 airlines from 95 origins to 305 unique destinations. Their CargoMART eBooking platform has become the marketplace with the most available options per routes and is becoming the partner of choice for freight forwarders.

“We have been growing very fast thanks to our different approach and special focus on making it simple for our airlines to integrate and our forwarders users to make bookings. Our unique combination of Tech and Air Cargo talents has helped to showcase that CargoAi can deliver modern tech solutions at a very fast pace to this industry. We have still a lot of work to do and 2023 looks already very exciting as CargoAi will focus on delivering new solutions outside of our eBooking platform (CargoMART).”
Matthieu Petot, Founder and CEO of CargoAi, said.

As of October 2022, freight forwarders were prompted with the “greenest” (i.e. least carbon-producing routes) when searching for rates on the marketplace. In November 2022, CargoAi announced a landmark partnership with Neste, the world’s leading producer of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) enabling small to medium freight forwarding companies worldwide to purchase SAF in accordance with their cargo bookings, in much smaller quantities. The awarded plug and play Cargo2ZERO solution is closing the knowledge hurdle of sustainable initiatives for airlines and freight forwarders.

CargoAi becomes the first marketplace where CMA CGM’s capacity and rate are available for instant booking. CMA CGM’s flights are live on CargoAi’s marketplace solution (CargoMART), for users in 5 countries – France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Hong Kong SAR of the People’s Republic of China. This go-live is in line with CMA CGM’s first own scheduled freighter service from Paris to Hong Kong SAR and vice versa.

"We’re thrilled that CargoMART becomes the first marketplace to sell CMA CGM’s freighter service. This is a great addition to our existing airline portfolio that CargoAi users get benefit from, especially with the perspective that 2C will further expand its network globally.”
Magali Beauregard, CCO of CargoAi, said.

Starting with General cargo, CMA CGM Air Cargo already planned a vision to further open Perishables and Allotment booking - allowing the full visibility and booking of all its routes to more than 7,700 freight forwarders across 114 countries who regularly use CargoAi’s marketplace, CargoMART.
