Published: Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Air New Zealand (NZ) Cargo has placed its capacity on CargoAi’s digital marketplace CargoMART to expand its online offering.

The first Australasian carrier to use CargoAi’s technology, Air NZ Cargo is now offering its capacity from the US and Canada into New Zealand and Australia.

Freight forwarders in the US and Canada can book general and express cargo instantaneously on all Air NZ Cargo routes.

Following the pilot launch, Air NZ Cargo will expand its offering on CargoAi on a global scale. This will allow the full visibility and booking of all its routes to more than 9,000 freight forwarders across 105 countries who regularly use CargoMART.

Users of CargoMART benefit from searching for real-time schedules, bulk quoting, e-booking, the ability to track and trace each shipment, as well CargoAi’s Cargo2ZERO sustainable features to support the air cargo industry’s decarbonisation mission.

Matt Petot, chief executive of CargoAi, said: “We are proud to be the marketplace of choice that Air NZ has chosen to commence its digital offering with.

“With our shared vision in transforming the air cargo landscape, we are looking forward to bringing the best digital booking experience that CargoMART offers to our joint customers.”

Brooke Roberts, sales manager, North America from Air NZ Cargo, added: “We are pleased to be partnering with CargoAi as Air New Zealand Cargo looks to expand our customer base within the North America market.

“While we enjoy a strong presence from the ports where we operate direct flights, the sheer size of the US and Canada market dictates we embrace platforms that expand our commercial reach.

“CargoAi will provide us the tools necessary to effectively offer cargo solutions to these customers for their everyday transportation needs into New Zealand and Australia.”
