CargoAi, the industry’s fastest-growing digital enabler, is thrilled to announce the launch of its latest innovative feature, Allotment, which simplifies & automates batch pre-booking & allotment for regular air cargo across more than 40 airlines across over 130 countries. This new addition to CargoAi’s comprehensive digital ecosystem further streamlines the operational booking process for freight forwarders looking to remove manual repetitive tasks & improved operators’ experience.

Revolutionizing Air Cargo Space Booking

In an industry where efficiency and precision are paramount, CargoAi’s allotment feature stands out by simplifying & automating the regular booking of cargo space, thus eliminating the repetitive manual shipment-by-shipment process and reducing the potential for errors. This cutting-edge feature allows freight forwarders to secure space in batches on flights seamlessly, ensuring timely and consistent shipment deliveries – cutting down the overall process from days, waiting for confirmations from multiple airlines, down to a few seconds thanks to their batch allotment upload solution & instant confirmation feature.

The solution – already adopted by multiple small & large forwarders – offers a plug & play solution into existing processes and helps reducing the operational workload by up to 99% for allotment bookings.

“We have been using the CargoAi Pre-Booking and Allotment’s feature since March 2024.

This has simplified our pre booking  process and we get automatic acceptance confirmation on our bookings ultimately saving time for our operations. We also no longer have to remember to chase confirmation on pre-bookings”, said Maxime Boucher, Chicago Export Gateway Manager at Flexport.

Forwarders, like Flexport, have been praising the new solution around 4 main benefits:

  • Speed – Forwarders can pre-book their allotment space in batches instead of asking & chasing confirmation shipment per shipment, reducing the overall operational process.
  • Autonomy – Forwarders gain control over the allotment booking flow, including frequency, in accordance with airlines’ booking windows. This feature empowers users to manage their bookings autonomously, without reliance on intermediaries nor the need to endlessly chase confirmation.
  • Flexibility – Forwarders generate bookings directly from their CargoMART account with the ability to modify or cancel as needed. Modifications and cancellations are subject to conditions defined and agreed upon providing users with the flexibility to adapt to changing needs.
  • Traceability – Users can track and trace all allotment bookings directly in-app and via email ensuring full transparency and real-time updates on shipment status.

A Commitment to Innovation and Excellence

CargoAi continues to set the benchmark for technological advancement in the freight industry. With allotment, the company underscores its dedication to providing state-of-the-art solutions that meet the evolving needs of its users. The feature is designed to integrate seamlessly with existing processes, offering a hassle-free experience for freight forwarders’ operators.

“Our new Allotment feature represents a significant leap forward in our mission to digitize and simplify the air cargo booking process,” said Matt Petot, CEO of CargoAi. “By automating space bookings, we are not only saving time for our users but also increasing their operational efficiency. This is a game-changer for large and medium-size freight forwarders who heavily rely on regular and reliable cargo space.”

The introduction of Allotment not only aligns with this mission but also sets a new standard for digital booking solutions in the market.
