cargo.one and IBS Software have announced a partnership to empower airlines on their digital transformation to emerge stronger from the COVID-19 crisis, the companies said.
The companies have been working together to create custom integrations for leading airlines, including Etihad Cargo and Nippon Cargo Airlines, to help them further develop their digital distribution capabilities.
With the first plug and play booking for All Nippon Airways (ANA) on cargo.one last week, cargo.one pioneers the implementation of the new iCargo Sales Platform which represents an industry-first standard integration for airlines running IBS´s iCargo software. The partners, IBS Software and cargo.one ´walk the talk´ of digitalization by delivering real results for their airline partner and cargo.one´s extensively growing user base of freight forwarders.
As COVID-19 urges airlines and forwarder sales teams to adapt to a new normal, cargo.one reports a record increase in usage and demand. The platform now serves about 1,500 freight forwarder branches, located across key European markets. This customer base represents a significant growth of 425% compared to last year.
The access and proven integration technology to the platform via the IBS iCargo Sales Platform will help the 30+ IBS airline customers to quickly use ´out of the box´ services, without the need for major system changes. This helps airlines develop digital distribution capabilities which is a game changer for the industry.
IBS Software is an SaaS solutions provider to the travel industry globally, managing mission-critical operations for customers in the aviation, tour & cruise and hospitality segments.
Cargo One GmbH develops a platform for booking and marketing air freight capacities. The company focuses on offering instantly bookable quotes for multiple airlines, making it the first booking platform of its kind.
