On Tuesday, JetBlue Cargo, via AeroNex Cargo, announced it would be rolling out access to real-time pricing, booking, and payments through WebCargo by Freightos.
JetBlue’s fleet of Airbus A320 and A321s offer 1-day, 2-day, and 3-day cargo service to 10 airports in North America, the company said, and its partnership with WebCargo will help forwarders provide more efficient and competitive services for customers. The partnership is expected to roll out in early 2023.
“With air cargo being the fastest growing business segment in the aviation industry during and after the pandemic, taking this step of joining the WebCargo platform will allow JetBlue Cargo customers to access their cargo bookings in a matter of seconds. I am confident that with a great partner like WebCargo, it will allow us to better serve our customers. We are excited to participate in this technological tendency that is the beginning of the future of online cargo bookings.” Said Patricio Sepulveda, founder and CEO of AeroNex Cargo, JetBlue’s exclusive cargo representative.
Using WebCargo will allow forwarders to improve cargo efficiency through “an industry-leading aggregation of carriers,” the company said. Further use of services like WebCargo Pay, the company’s integrated payment solution, would improve efficiency more, the company said.
“Moving air cargo efficiently and competitively is critical for increasingly complex supply chains,” said Camilo Garcia, VP of Global Business Development at WebCargo. “We’re excited to partner with JetBlue and AeroNex Cargo to scale eBookings and payments across our network of over 10,000 forwarding offices, and especially to our 7LFreight users in North America.”
