Lufthansa Cargo implements smartBooking to power digitalization

Lufthansa Cargo has announced it is using smartBooking, a new digital interface (API), to provide customers and partners with a binding offer that can be booked online immediately, the company said.

smartBooking contains the available routings, capacities and prices and automatically executes all relevant checks. This means that the offer can be booked in real time and confirmed straightaway. With smartBooking, Lufthansa Cargo has completely digitalized the offer and booking process.

Aside from Lufthansa Cargo´s direct customers, partners such as significantly growing cargo.one can also use the smartBooking API to make their platforms even more informative and customer-oriented with immediate access to available capacities and prices.

Lufthansa Cargo joined forces with the digital booking platform cargo.one in July 2018. A year after launching, the platform is a rapidly growing third-party distribution channel next to Lufthansa Cargo´s own ebooking channel.
