At AFKL Cargo, our ambition is to offer seamless 24/7 online experience to our customers with our digital offer. In this context, enriching our customers´ in-house systems with our AFKL Cargo services is the next big step.
Last month, we conducted a successful pilot project with Kuehne+Nagel in Italy, whereby we directly connected our online processes with theirs, using a API connection, which included dynamic pricing. This close interplay between systems, the first of its kind in the airfreight market, has many benefits, including faster time to market for quotes and bookings, greater reliability of real-time rates, easier tailoring to customer needs, and greater efficiency and flexibility in a business environment where every second counts.
This pilot project is a new step, following our partnership with WebCargo, which enables real-time e-booking and dynamic pricing on third-party portal. It paves the way to previously planned further developments.
Beyond speed and productivity improvements of digital transactions, the major benefits of API integration revolve around fostering collaborative relationships and new work practices that drive modern supply chains
