Teleport, the logistics venture of Capital A (formerly AirAsia Group) will soon go live on WebCargo, enabling easier and faster digital access to Teleport’s fleet capacity to over 3,000 global 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 the extensive belly spaces via Airasia’s passenger flights in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. 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 percent of global cargo capacity will be available for real-time freight pricing and booking on WebCargo.
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 digitisation,” said Manel Galindo, the CEO of WebCargo, a Freightos Company. “It’s no coincidence that during one of air cargo’s busiest periods, eBookings on WebCargo increased by over 1,000 percent. 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.”
