Teleport to launch online accessibility to its air capacity in Asia

Published: Monday, March 14, 2022

Teleport will launch online accessibility to its air cargo capacity in Asia with WebCargo soon.

Teleport, the logistics venture of Capital A (formerly AirAsia Group), said it will improve access to Teleport’s fleet capacity for over 3,000 freight forwarders around the world.

Since 2020, Teleport has built a cargo-only network to key markets in Asia, connecting via its hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok to cater for the increasing e-commerce and overall cargo demand and also offers extensive bellyspace via Airasia’s passenger flights in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The company recently announced it was restoring its cargo-only network with the launch of 12 destinations across Asia this month.

Teleport’s capacity will initially be available for customers in Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Australia, Korea, Manila and India before rolling out to WebCargo’s user base later in 2022.

With this, over 31% of global cargo capacity will be available for real-time freight pricing and booking on WebCargo, a Freightos Company.

Adrian Loretz, chief operating officer of Teleport, said: “Global supply chain disruptions have made flexible air cargo in the Asia-Pacific region critical, both to support the region’s broad manufacturing base and to compensate for ongoing ocean freight port challenges.

“Against this backdrop, it was important for us to join forces with WebCargo as we expand our logistics footprint across Asia. Coupled with our robust and extensive cargo network, we are certain WebCargo will be advantageous for more freight forwarders and direct shippers not only in Southeast Asia, but those in other regions as well. More of our network capacity will now be accessible for online booking which will enhance the cargo booking experience, making it a streamlined process with a fast and intuitive experience for all.”

“The past year has proven the sheer demand for air cargo digitization,” said Manel Galindo, the chief executives of WebCargo. “It’s no coincidence that during one of air cargo’s busiest periods, eBookings on WebCargo increased by over 1,000%. Through this partnership, leveraging our established technology with Teleport’s innovative drive and customer reach, we’re excited to improve air cargo bookings for thousands of shippers.”
