A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has created a fully-digital solution for clients looking to acquire air freight services.
According to the company, the new online solution allows clients to arrange their air cargo requirements using an online tool that delivers fast quotes for up to 70,000 connections between nearly all key airports worldwide.
Maersk’s air freight cargo coverage includes 70,000 airport pairs in over 90 countries across the world. As a fully online service, the platform aims to enable customers to schedule cargo movement for any of the 70,000 airport pairs from anywhere in the world.
Maersk’s air freight solutions reportedly enable cargo transfer from the majority of India’s international airports.
The carrier’s comprehensive logistics solutions, which include a robust hinterland distribution network, enable cargo movement to and from 80 per cent of India’s postal/ZIP codes with end-to-end pick-up and delivery.
Darryl Judd, Regional Head of Air Freight for Maersk in the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Africa, said: “Today, manufacturing has truly diversified with global value chains. We are noticing that customers sitting in one part of the world need to move raw material from origin to destination without being at either of the locations. Our digital air freight solution allows them to make such bookings seamlessly.”
