Aero Africa, the Hong Kong based neutral air cargo solutions group, has recently launched its digital airfreight rate platform to cater to the needs of the African freight & logistics community.
The new airfreight gateway and consolidation portal will be available exclusively to freight forwarders & transport-related companies, providing instant air freight wholesale rates, consolidation schedules, and digital bookings from major global hubs to 84 airports in Africa starting in Southern Africa by June 2021.
The new platform is powered by Hashmove, a leading digital transformation provider based in the U.A.E.
“Combining our extensive experience and expertise in air freight, with Hashmove’s technological capabilities, will open up new and innovative ways for African logistics providers to conduct airfreight business, which will transform traditional notions of efficiency and routes to market.
“This is the first of many initiatives we are planning to release this year, which will bring enhanced value to the African logistics community as a whole. Aero Africa operates neutral scheduled air freight consolidations services from Asia and Europe to selected gateways in Africa. The portal will enable us to digitise effectively the air cargo logistics B2B community and to provide full visibility and transparency to our client’s airfreight import business.
“The platform has been built tailored to the needs of the African logistics market, taken into consideration every small detail of the air freight procurement and consolidation management model at each gateway and African destination,” said Jade Da Costa, CCO of Aero Africa.
Abdur Rehman, co-Founder and EVP Engineering of HashMove added: “Making a consolidation platform for Air Cargo is not an easy task but thanks to the in-depth understanding of building a Logistics Platform by our team, we have done it in record time.
“The HashMove Engineering team has worked very hard on the complete digital transformation of the Aero Africa network and its operations. Freight Forwarders globally can now get ‘exclusive and instant access’ to millions of Air Cargo rates into Africa on the new Aero Africa platform powered by HashMove. We are happy to be part of this unique collaboration between HashMove and Aero Africa, and are very excited for the launch of this platform in summer 2021”.
