Virgin Atlantic Cargo will be offering its capacity at the WebCargo platform by Freightos, combining Virgin Atlantic Cargo's network with WebCargo's digital reach and providing more options for forwarders globally.


With the largest off-site cargo handling operation at the UK's largest commercial aviation hub in London, Virgin Atlantic Cargo flies to 30 destinations across four continents, including key locations across the United States, India, China, Nigeria, South Africa, and the Caribbean.


Virgin Atlantic Cargo's cargo centre, "dnata City East," — offers the latest technology and facilities available to handle cargo efficiently and enables smooth connections to its onward network.


The airline's facilities and the processes implemented worldwide are designed to keep all types of products, from general cargo to perishables and pharma safe during their transportation.


"We are delighted to have partnered with WebCargo as we continue to provide intuitive experiences for our customers, so they can move cargo their way.  As customer requirements and digital experiences evolve, it's important for us to work with a platform that has an optimized digital booking process and provides access to the largest number of forwarders with seamless access to our global network," said Phil Wardlaw, managing director at Virgin Atlantic Cargo.


"Customers are at the heart of everything we do, and we strive to make air cargo easier for everyone, offering more ways to book and access our capacity."


Manel Galindo, chief revenue officer at Freightos, said the addition of Virgin Atlantic Cargo's capacity to WebCargo means that freight forwarders in over 10,000 offices worldwide gain instant, digital access to its network — including destinations such as New York, Los Angeles, and New Delhi.


"Global reach is crucial in our current era of supply chain disruptions and Red Sea workarounds.  We are proud to partner with Virgin Atlantic Cargo to expand trade between the people of the world," Galindo added.
