Japan’s Nippon Cargo Airlines has entered a partnership with air cargo e-booking platform cargo.one, allowing freight forwarders to book capacity with instant confirmation.
The partnership will allow NCA to expand its reach in Europe by gaining access to cargo.one’s fast-growing user base of more than 300 freight forwarding companies, and reduce manual distribution work.
cargo.one will utilise one.connect for the first time, further simplifying its integration process with airlines.
one.connect is the result of knowledge and technological requirements from past integrations placed into a single standardised technology layer, enabling connections to a large number of airline legacy systems.
Welcoming the first Asian partner, Moritz Claussen, managing director of cargo.one says: “NCA’s main deck capacities will further add to cargo.one’s attractiveness for freight forwarders, allowing us to increase demand on the platform which will, in turn, lead to more capacity distribution overall for those airlines partnering with cargo.one.”
Satoshi Shimura, vice president, general manager and head of business digitalization at NCA says: “It will enhance our customers’ experience and help us reach new customer segments. cargo.one has proven to be a reliable, innovative and fast-moving partner to a growing number of airlines and we are happy to take the lead as the first Asian carrier to join the platform.”
Integration work to connect NCA’s cargo system iCargo to cargo.one will start later this year with the launch of capacity expected late in the first quarter of 2020.
