TOKYO/BERLIN, June 22, 2020 - As of now, All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan's largest airline, provides real-time quotes for all available air cargo capacity on leading e-booking platform cargo.one.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for the increased digital sourcing and booking behavior of freight forwarders and has encouraged our companies to join together with an even stronger bond," said Toshiaki Toyama, Executive Vice President of ANA. "Through this partnership, ANA can now guarantee a secure, first-class digital booking experience on cargo.one. We are extremely excited to join the cargo.one family and look forward in the coming months to offering more products and services to freight forwarders around the world via the platform."
Over the course of the last year, cargo.one continues to prove its competence in deploying technology to quickly support profound changes in an airline's digital capabilities.
"With cargo.one, it is possible for every airline to access incremental revenues and strengthen their top line," said Moritz Claussen, Founder & Managing Director at cargo.one. "We have further standardized our processes while always keeping a customer-centric approach that is tailored towards the individual needs of our airline partners. We are very happy to have ANA on board now and look forward to expanding our partnership."
Starting today, ANA capacity will be available in key European countries, such as Germany, the UK, and France. Other markets, such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Italy and Sweden will be available soon.
