The International Air Transport Association (IATA) today welcomed Air Canada Cargo to the association’s IATA Net Rates air cargo rates platform, allowing the Canadian carrier to expand its digital offering to provide an additional digital option to its customers.
IATA Net Rates supports real time rates distribution, dynamic pricing and booking, and is available worldwide.
Under the TACT Air Cargo Solutions umbrella, freight forwarders can access the latest information on rates, rules, tariffs, schedules and compliance information, that can be accessed online or integrated with customer systems, accelerating the distribution of rates to market while simplifying and reducing the cost of rate handling procedures.
“IATA is very pleased to welcome Air Canada Cargo to the IATA Net Rates platform to support its cargo rates distribution processes. We look forward to future collaboration with Air Canada Cargo,” said Frederic Leger, interim senior vice president commercial services and president, CNS.
“We are delighted to be working with IATA Net Rates as we continue our digital evolution. Through IATA Net rates, Air Canada Cargo will be able to securely automate its rate distribution to freight forwarders around the globe. This initiative comes at an opportune time for Air Canada Cargo as we grow our business with the upcoming arrival of new dedicated freighter aircraft.” said Matthieu Casey, senior director, cargo global sales and revenue optimisation for Air Canada Cargo.
