Starting November, capacity of charter carriers Condor, TUI and Sunclass, managed by ECS Group, will be available on cargo.one in Germany, followed by other key European countries such as Belgium and the Netherlands, a press release confirmed.
Freight forwarders can check the cargo booking platform to check the capacity at real-time prices for online booking and instant confirmation.
ECS Group said it has partnered with several digital solutions providers to make the services of airlines under its portfolio available online as part of its overall transformation agenda.
“Online distribution is a needed service for us to allow our principals to rise from the COVID-19 crisis faster and stronger. Making the services of our partner airlines Condor, TUI and Sunclass available on cargo.one is a step forward in this strategy.” says Cedric Millet, Chief Strategy and Digital Officer at ECS Group.
The partnership with cargo.one will guarantee freight forwarders easy access to the carriers’ network, particularly frequent services to the Canary and ABC Islands.
After its $18.6 million funding round, cargo.one has been rapidly expanding its services. Heading into peak season, the platform will be a crucial channel for its airline partners to distribute capacity efficiently.
“To partner with ECS Group on this integration marks an important milestone for the industry. It signals our joint commitment towards more collaboration amongst all participants of the industry to create a bright and sustainable future for air cargo,” says Moritz Claussen, co-founder and managing director at cargo.one
