cargo.one launches cargo.one pro, the next generation platform for instant quoting and agent-to-agent bookings with global non-payment protection
Berlin, Germany—cargo.one recently launched the air cargo industry’s biggest step forward to date in equipping freight forwarders with seamless digital agent-to-agent bookings.
cargo.one now enables importers to compare and book rates instantly with other verified forwarding partners 24/7. Export agents can win new business from import agents worldwide, all secured with global non-payment protection via cargo.one pro.
Prior to cargo.one pro’s introduction, procuring rates from abroad took import agents hours or even days – a manual process made more inefficient by agents being located in different timezones, complicating communication. The new system now offers a step-change experience with the opportunity to browse and book live airfreight and local charges from a wide range of verified export agents around the world.
Shipments can be booked day and night, with instant confirmation, routing and airway bill details. Import agents using cargo.one pro will often be the first to quote their customers, beating their competition by a wide margin. In an industry where speed is of the essence, this competitive advantage can lead them to win more business.
cargo.one pro is equally exciting for export agents, who can offer live digital booking to their international partners through the platform. Instead of having to answer hundreds of requests from overseas import agents, export agents now simply receive confirmed shipments as import agents browse and book digitally.
Moreover, cargo.one pro provides an unprecedented opportunity for export agents to make new connections and receive digital bookings from a community of thousands of verified import agents around the globe. Prior to its official launch, export agents have served over 6000 import shipment quote requests from 121 countries without the burden of manually replying to every request.
Moritz Claussen, Founder & Co-CEO of cargo.one, comments, “cargo.one has always focused its innovation on increasing connectivity and making freight forwarders’ lives easier. As an industry, transactions between import and export agents have been neglected and left on the digital sidelines. cargo.one pro is a significant leap forward in empowering forwarders to collaborate globally, with world class digital tools. With cargo.one pro, forwarders are already finding trusted partners and winning new business within hours of signing-up”.
Laying the foundation for a suite of products enabling hassle-free transactions, cargo.one is also launching cargo.one protect, a global non-payment protection program providing payment protection for cargo.one pro enabled import bookings.
cargo.one says it continues to offer digital air cargo bookings for any CASS registered freight agent in over 75 countries worldwide with over 40 airlines for free.
Upgrading to cargo.one pro starts at a monthly price of EUR 99 per branch. Members of forwarding networks that are part of cargo.one’s Forwarder Network Partner Program can gain access to cargo.one pro at a preferential price, the company said.
