Air France-KLM to publish rates on OAG system
Air France Cargo-KLM Cargo now publishes all its air cargo rates on OAG Cargo's Air Freight Rates (AFRA) application, OAG said Tuesday.
AFRA provides direct access to real-time air freight rates and information and is designed to help freight forwarders make buying decisions in 144 global markets.
Air France-KLM Cargo has established a global interface to OAG Cargo, which will see the publication of 800,000 active and future rates for freight forwarders subscribing to AFRA. Authorized AFRA users can also find promotional rates and, when applicable, forwarders can find their own customer agreement rates.
'Air France and KLM were among the launch users of AFRA in 2002,' said Bart Jan Haasbeek, global sales director of OAG Cargo. 'Their experience of the application has established AFRA as a business critical tool to disseminate rate information to customers. The new global interface will see all the latest rates for AF-KL Cargo uploaded into AFRA on a weekly basis. These rates are also bookable via AFRA's connections to cargo bookings portals, enabling both the airlines and their customers to improve their operational and financial productivity.'
