WebCargo by Freightos , a leading independent booking and payment platform for the international freight industry, is excited to announce a new partnership with Thai Airways, a key Asian carrier and the national carrier of Thailand.  In the coming months, Thai Airways will integrate its cargo capacities into WebCargo’s platform,  offering real-time booking, pricing, and payment processes. Soon, forwarders will be able to book and pay for air cargo directly with WebCargo Pay, an integrated payment solution that enables more seamless payments and reconciliations.

In its initial phase, this collaboration will leverage Thai Airways’ extensive network to some freight forwarders in Australia, Japan, Thailand, and the United Kingdom seeking to book and pay for cargo services on Thai Airways through WebCargo’s platform. 

“By helping forwarders of different sizes easily book and pay for Thai Airways capacity on WebCargo’s platform, we are not only expanding digital access to one of Asia’s largest air cargo networks but also continuing our mission to help evolve how cargo bookings and payments are handled,” said Manuel Galindo, Chief Revenue Officer of Freightos. “With WebCargo eBooking and Pay, Thai Airways will be able to expand their audience and provide their customers with smooth access to flexible credit and payment options, and to complete their bookings in seconds.” 

Operating out of its hub in Bangkok, Thai Airways is renowned not only for its comprehensive route network, but also for its commitment to customer service and operational excellence. Chirachet Chanawiset, Head of Cargo & Mail Commercial,  Thai Airways Cargo, said, “Thai Airways aims for service of  excellence to provide secure and environmentally-responsible air transport solutions. Our collaboration with WebCargo by Freightos is a key milestone in our digital transformation journey.  With WebCargo Pay, we are excited to reach a broader audience and empower a wider array of freight forwarders to grow their businesses, easily and securely.”
