Fort Worth, Texas—American Airlines Cargo today unveiled AACargoPlus.com, the airline’s newest electronic distribution channel for air freight shippers who need one-stop bundled pick-up and delivery services. This new Web portal is powered by Integres Global Logistics, a virtual integrator, who has the support of several industry-leading transportation companies to provide component transportation services.
Air cargo customers have a number of Internet options at American Airlines to facilitate shipping packages and larger freight shipments. For the past year, AAToday.com has served American’s same-day customers with full Internet service. In December, AACargo.com premiered, containing full information about American’s shipping products and services available for freight forwarders and the general public.
“AACargoPlus.com fills a niche in our Internet portfolio for those companies who contact us today with end-to-end air freight needs”, stated Richard Denhart, manager - marketing communications. “Because customers want to use the Internet to make their transportation processes more efficient, we will continue to enhance our electronic distribution channel offerings to better serve their needs.”
AACargoPlus.com provides a range of shipment delivery options using Integres’ routing engine and network of service providers on the ground and in the air. Customers can sign up immediately on the site to begin activating their online account. Once established, they will be able to book and track their shipments online from pick up through final delivery.
