Air Canada Cargo has become the first North American carrier to join the CargoWise eBooking platform that will allow customers to have real-time access to schedules, pricing, and booking.

Canada’s largest air cargo provider is continuing the digitization of its operations that saw the opening of a new Cold Chain facility at its Toronto Hub and the introduction of Releye live monitored, temperature-controlled certified aircraft containers.

It has also grown its freighter fleet with the addition of two new B767Fs and the order of two B777Fs.

Said Matthieu Casey, managing director, commercial – cargo at Air Canada: “We are pleased to be connecting to CargoWise’s booking platform as another step in our continued digital transformation and evolution.

“We believe strongly that digitalization is key to the success of air cargo and we continue to stay ahead of the curve. This new platform will provide additional value to our customers and continue to enhance efficiencies.”

Jorre Cobelens, vice president – logistics data and connectivity, WiseTech Global: said “Air Canada Cargo is leading the way for North American air cargo operators to offer a more efficient cargo booking and management experience via direct data integration with CargoWise.”

Cobelens continued: “The easy access to timely information to make informed decisions with transparency at every stage of the process improves efficiency and flexibility for the airline and their customers.

“CargoWise now enables direct data exchange with most API connectable airlines, including Air Canada Cargo. Our vision is for CargoWise to be the operating system for global logistics, increasing productivity, visibility and data security across the end-to-end ecosystem,” said Mr Cobelens.
