Stepping into digital distribution: ANA to offer seamless online cargo booking experience to freight forwarders on leading ebooking platform cargo.one
Leveraging network effects: cargo.one to continue its rapid growth by further expanding its global offering
All Nippon Airways, Japan’s largest airline, heralds in the new decade by joining leading online platform cargo.one to offer its cargo customers ebooking capabilities. Furthermore, the airline will profit from cargo.one’s extensive customer base in Europe and thus, expand its presence in key cargo markets.
“Partnering with leading online booking platform cargo.one will help to accelerate our ambition to digitally transform our business within the coming years and to focus even more on our customer needs,” said Toshiaki Toyama, Senior Vice President of ANA. “With cargo.one we enable freight forwarders to book our capacity offers in a fast and frictionless manner, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.“
Digital booking platform cargo.one has been accelerating its growth by leveraging network effects over the past year. In 2019, the platform distributed more than 2.2 million instantly bookable real-time offers to customers – averaging more than 6,000 a day. With each new airline joining the platform, the technology company sees a strong increase in bookings per user. ANA’s strong network in Asia will boost overall capacities available to cargo.one customers on important tradelanes, and will thus help to add to the digital platform’s monthly growth rate of on average 20%.
“As cargo.one continues to expand rapidly we are looking forward to adding even more capacity on major trade lanes to Asia,” said Moritz Claussen, Managing Director of cargo.one. “We are very happy to welcome major Asian carrier ANA to the platform and to support the airline to extend its reach into the European market while offering a first-class booking experience to customers.“
ANA and cargo.one successfully kicked-off the integration of their core systems in mid-January and are looking forward to making ANA Cargo capacity available on the platform in the early second quarter of 2020.
