Hellmann to use digital booking platform cargo.one

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has become one of the latest companies to launch a partnership with online air freight booking portal cargo.one.

The forwarder said the cargo.one would enable it to book air freight capacity digitally in real time, with live spot rates. Hellmann is one of the first customers of the Berlin-based company and thus plays a pioneering role in the digitalisation of the logistics industry. Initially, Hellman will use the platform for bookings made in Germany, before rolling it out across its network.

Bart de Vries, Chief Operating Officer Air & Sea at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, said: “With cargo.one, we will be able to compare capacities and prices even more transparently and quickly in the future and realise freight space at top rates for our customers.”

cargo.one-co-founder Moritz Claussen commented on the cooperation: “For airlines, cargo.one offers an even more attractive distribution channel thanks to the cooperation with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.”

The two companies will work together to bring the capacities of other airlines onto the booking platform.
