OAG Cargo announced today the launch of the OAG Cargo airfreight portal for forwarders and airlines in Thailand through an expansion of its partnership with Trade & Logistics Siam Ltd. The launch of the new portal within the Thai market brings the full range of OAG Cargo’s global services to the local Thai air cargo community and represents an increase in activities in the Asia Pacific region for OAG Cargo. To access the portal, log on to www.oagcargo.com.
With local support from the expanded partnership, the portal enables freight forwarders to run their businesses more efficiently through provision of a full complement of powerful tools and services. In addition, airlines are able to use the portal to reach their freight forwarder customers with immediate operational news and data. Giving OAG customers a competitive edge, the portal is a straightforward and unique solution for airfreight companies. It enhances the way rates and schedules information is managed, improving efficiency within any organization. Among other capabilities, portal users will be able to upload or generate electronic rate sheets, create and distribute quotations to global shippers, access real-time airfreight rate information on a secure network and publish time-sensitive operational announcements. The portal is fully customizable and can be localized to fit the needs of each operation.
Bart Jan Haasbeek, Global Sales Director of OAG Cargo Solutions, said that, “The introduction of the OAG Cargo portal in Thailand provides our global customers and the local air freight community with one place to access important information, whenever and wherever they need it. We are delivering this through the portal in conjunction with Trade & Logistics Siam as our General Sales Agent in Thailand, enabling us to build stronger and closer ties with carriers and forwarders in one of the region’s major markets”
