Qatar Airways Cargo has collaborated with the South Korean air cargo platform iNOMAD to provide increased visibility of rates and capacity for its customers when booking shipments in the region.
The iNOMAD platform has been designed to transmit and receive information from logistics-related service providers and master loaders, including airlines.
It is claimed to be the first company that links an application program interface (API) with north-east Asian air carriers, providing comprehensive services ranging from air cargo booking and rates to schedules and tracking.
iNOMAD CEO Joon-suk Yim said: “Developing this business, we are grateful and proud to start a new partnership with Qatar Airways, a top-tier airline, that can provide us with vital information in expanding our logistics service.
“We aim to become a search engine for the air logistics field in which clients can check the information they need in real-time, regardless of time and place.
“We thus plan to do our best to nourish our customised services to build a stronger partnership, cherishing the meaningful opportunity to join Qatar Airways Cargo’s digital transformation.”
The tie-up is said to benefit Woojung Air, which is one of Qatar Airways Cargo’s leading clients in the region.
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) operating with Woojung Air can compare Qatar Airways Cargo’s services on the iNOMAD portal.
Qatar Airways Cargo chief officer Guillaume Halleux said: “Digital transformation is high on our agenda as part of our VISION 2027 and Next Generation Strategy.
“The integration and partnership with iNOMAD bring multiple benefits to our customers in South Korea such as enhanced visibility of our capacity, rates, as well as real-time confirmation of their shipments.”
