Airblox has launched a live feed of global air freight scheduled flight capacity to support users of its electronic Block Space Agreement (eBSA) booking service.
Airblox’s online marketplace enables freight forwarders and airlines to trade air cargo capacity in the form of standardised eBSAs.
The new live feed will enable users to view upcoming capacity and make informed business decisions by lane by making bids for, and securing eBSAsat competitive prices.
Airblox says it is pioneering the digitisation of BSAs, where companies purchase cargo space on a flight in advance, to make the BSA a tradable commodity.
Airblox founder Edip Pektas said: “By digitising capacity in a centralised exchange in a standardised format, the market is assigning a certain value to it that can be trade.
“We believe that the future of air cargo capacity is as a tradable concept, and by launching this new feed, we are a step closer to giving full transparency of the scheduled global air freight capacity to our users so that they can make informed decisions.”
