Freightos, a booking and payment platform for the international freight industry, announced that WebCargo by Freightos has partnered with Virgin Atlantic Cargo.

Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s state-of-the-art cargo centre “dnata City East” offers the latest technology and facilities available to handle cargo efficiently and enables smooth connections to its onward network.
The airline’s facilities and the processes implemented worldwide are designed to keep all types of products from general cargo to perishables and pharma safe during their transportation.
“We are delighted to have partnered with WebCargo as we continue to provide intuitive experiences for our customers, so they can move cargo their way. As customer requirements and digital experiences evolve it’s important for us to work with a platform that has an optimised digital booking process and provides access to the largest number of forwarders with seamless access to our global network,” said Virgin Atlantic Cargo Managing Director Phil Wardlaw.
“Customers are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to make air cargo easier for everyone, offering more ways to book and access our capacity.”
“The addition of Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s capacity to WebCargo means that freight forwarders in over 10,000 offices worldwide gain instant, digital access to Virgin’s vast network, including key destinations, such as New York, Los Angeles, and New Delhi,” said Manel Galindo, Chief Revenue Officer at Freightos.
