The two announced an expansion of their partnership in order to bring more of the airline’s capacity on board the leading marketplace for digital air cargo bookings.
As per a release from cargo.one, “The growth builds upon a 1.5 year collaboration in which cargo.one delivered Saudia Cargo’s first external digital sales channel and greatly enhanced both its market reach and quality of service to freight forwarders. cargo.one and Saudia teams will double down on initiatives to derive maximum value from the airline’s digital distribution.” The release added, “Freight forwarders using cargo.one have booked thousands of shipments across Saudia’s global network on its dedicated freighter and passenger fleets.”
In order to support the airline grow in new markets and customer segments, over 50% of the bookings were to destinations outside Saudi Arabia.

We expect the majority of customers to be booking digitally in only a few years time, and cargo.one to continue delivering a valuable proportion of our online sales. It makes every sense to work with the biggest marketplace partner, building upon existing successes, remaining dynamic to evolving market needs and generating new revenues wherever possible.” Said the Chief Executive Officer of Saudia Cargo, Teddy Zebitz.
