Imagine if you can get competitive air freight rates for your requirements and complete transactions faster. This is exactly what Etihad Cargo’s instant offer rate solution aims to do.
The solution, developed with IBS Software, reduces the processing time and can generate prices in seconds based on five key details for bookings and flights across the carrier’s network, including density, departure day, direct or indirect flights, flight demand and requested service.
The new system cuts the transaction time by up to 70 percent. It uses the required flight/booking data and can provide the best available price within a few seconds seamlessly via Etihad Cargo’s online portal.
The Abu Dhabi-based carrier has been adding features to its revamped booking portal, ‘making it easier and more intuitive for partners and customers to make bookings,” said Leonard Rodrigues, head of revenue management and network planning at Etihad Cargo.
The launch of the new solution follows the recent addition of features enabling the booking of cats, dogs and dangerous goods on Etihad’s air cargo booking portal as part of its ongoing digitalisation strategy.
