Over the past three years, air cargo has undergone a digital revolution, driving more reliable, accurate, and accessible supply chains. This is particularly important in South America, which exports approximately $1 trillion of goods annually.
Digital Air Cargo is expanding to South America with LATAM Cargo, the largest South American carrier, offering real-time pricing and booking for forwarders on WebCargo, a leading global cargo booking platform. LATAM Cargo, which offers services to over 135 destinations in more than 20 countries, is the first South American carrier to go live on WebCargo.
Real-time bookings with LATAM Cargo are already available for WebCargo customers on 27 lanes with the possibility of connecting in South America. With LATAM Cargo, carriers representing over 36% of global air cargo capacity are available for booking on WebCargo, unlocking additional customer value and improving efficiency. As Carlos Cheeseman, the owner of Airgroup Miami, a Radiant Logistics Company, said “Having LATAM on WebCargo and 7LFreight for real-time booking is an excellent addition to facilitate our moves to Latin and South America.”
“The industry is shifting towards digital collaboration and as the leading carrier of South America we want to provide customers with reliable and efficient solutions and a broad set of options that allows them to choose what works best for them. As part of our digitalization roadmap we decided to partner up with WebCargo by Freightos to provide our customers access to our capacity. This collaboration is an important milestone in LATAM Cargo’s digital roadmap,” said Jorge Galvez, the SVP Marketing and Development LATAM Cargo at LATAM group.
“Global trade moves faster than it ever has before,” said Manuel Galindo, CEO of WebCargo by Freightos. “With innovative partners like LATAM Cargo, forwarders can move at the same pace, improving efficiency across over 100,000 quarterly bookings.”
