• Seamless connectivity and enhanced reliability via API integration;
• Step towards the digitalisation of the airfreight industry.

In a proof of concept that was recently brought to conclusion, the two companies enabled total host-to-host connection through application programming interface (API) allowing for a system-based, integrated and interactive match between available capacity and demand.

It is the first time that an airfreight carrier and a global logistics provider create a direct system-to-system connection that transforms manual quotation and capacity booking process into a digital automated solution, fostering collaborative relationships and next-generation supply chain practice. Customers will benefit from a seamless experience with both companies' full digital offering, including ad-hoc quotations, capacity availability inquiries, dynamic pricing and real-time e-booking functionalities. Following the successful proof of concept, both companies have agreed to further develop the solution and to start the roll-out in Europe and South Asia Pacific.

Yngve Ruud, Member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel, responsible for airfreight, says: "The successful conclusion of our proof of concept with Air France KLM Martinair Cargo is a further step forward in eTouch, Kuehne + Nagel’s digital transformation process and initiative to offer a seamless digital customer journey. Thanks to the new interface, we increase speed, accuracy and efficiency to the benefit of our airfreight customers all over the globe."

Marcel de Nooijer, EVP Air France-KLM Cargo and managing director of Martinair, adds: "At Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, we keep innovating to provide connected and tailored solutions to our business customers around the world. In this context, enriching Kuehne + Nagel’s in-house systems with our digital services is another step towards the digitization of our industry."
