Shanghai-based Eastern Air Logistics has taken its first steps into digital sales with the announced partnership with air freight digital marketplace cargo.one
The landmark partnership will bring extensive capacity from both China Eastern Airlines and China Cargo Airlines to the real-time digital booking platform.
Eastern Air Logistics harnesses the scale of China Cargo Airlines’ dedicated Boeing 777 and 747 freighter fleet and the belly capacity in nearly 800 China Eastern Airlines passenger aircraft. Its network covers 184 countries and regions with state-of-the-art air cargo depot facilities at major Chinese air hubs in Shanghai, Beijing, Kunming, Xi’an and Wuhan, as well as a nationwide transportation network.
From Summer 2023, freight forwarders can book Eastern Air Logistics capacity using the cargo.one marketplace. Users can access important trade lanes between China and major regional hubs including Frankfurt, London, Budapest, Amsterdam in Europe; New York, Los Angeles, Toronto in North America; and Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Ho Chi Minh in Asia Pacific.
Jonathan Xu, General Manager of Logistics Solutions Business Dept. at Eastern Air Logistics, comments: “a clear benefit of partnering with cargo.one is the strength of its insights, proactive partnership support and the valuable best practices for digital that we are gaining for our first steps into digital distribution.”
