The American Airlines Cargo network continues to expand on WebCargo, a Freightos company, now with the inclusion of 28 new countries and more than 40 markets across Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.

Following Europe and the U.S., this regional rollout onto WebCargo now includes a significant portion of the carrier’s global network, with plans to continue expanding on the platform in the coming months.

American currently operates more than 5,000 monthly flights out of these regions, including widebody flights out of Buenos Aires (EZE), Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Santiago (SCL) and São Paulo (GRU) to U.S. hubs – enabling WebCargo users to take advantage of large capacity and endless connection opportunities throughout the airline’s U.S. network and beyond.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer even more of our vast global network on the WebCargo platform as users can now enjoy direct connections to the U.S. from more than 40 origins across these new markets,” Lorena Sandoval, sales director – Florida, Mexico, Caribbean and Latin America for American Airlines Cargo, said. “Our priority is always to meet the unique needs of our customers, and we look forward to seeing how our growing partnership with WebCargo will continue to benefit the cargo industry.”

“We’re delighted to expand American Airlines cargo coverage to even more freight forwarders across the WebCargo network,” Camilo Garcia, global vice president of business development at WebCargo, said. “The Americas and Caribbean play an absolutely vital role in global trade, particularly leading up to peak season, and we are confident that the thousands of forwarding offices in these regions on WebCargo and 7LFreight will benefit.”
