Cargo.one and Air France KLM Martinair Cargo have announced a new partnership.
Cargo.one says the partnership will bring capacity from one of the world’s largest combined cargo airlines to its digital air cargo bookings marketplace and that the additional, high-quality digital booking option for Air France KLM Martinair Cargo will benefit many freight forwarders and offer ideal support for the carrier’s extensive network connectivity.
Air France KLM Martinair Cargo offers 295 shipping destinations across 110 countries and has dual hubs of Paris Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Through its partnership with cargo.one, AFKLMP Cargo intends to continue expanding its digital presence and offer customers an additional booking option alongside its own myCargo online booking portal.
The partnership began with an initiation phase in one of AFKLMP’s main markets, meant to expand visibility and utilise the leading digital buying journeys to improve the efficiency of digital sales handling by local airline teams. Close monitoring and evaluation of the partnership benefits showed that cargo.one has indeed expanded the reach and exposure of Air France KLM Martinair Cargo’s existing digital offering, making it a valuable addition.
Gertjan Roelands, SVP Sales and Distribution Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, commented: “The cooperation with cargo.one fits in with our overall channel strategy. We have our own full-service platform, myCargo, where we offer all of our services, including our most recent feature, Modify my Booking. We are investing significantly in our digital offering and expect to launch some unique new services soon in myCargo. Based on customer traction, we have decided to extend our cooperation with cargo.one by connecting our booking option.
“We believe this channel compliments our own online platform. We have been cooperating with third-party portals for some time now and we are delighted to add this new partnership. For us, it is key to be where our customers are!”
Moritz Claussen, Founder and Co-CEO of cargo.one noted: “I am delighted that Air France KLM Martinair Cargo sees demonstrable value in working with us globally for its distribution. After a successful start, and gains in incremental revenue and operational efficiency, it is exciting that our teams will now continue to work closely to iterate on the industry-leading technical infrastructure, processes and expertise that the airline and cargo.one can combine in this partnership.”
