For Etihad Cargo, the direct eBooking integration with the global logistics provider, is another feather in its digital sales channels portfolio, which already includes the leading third-party booking marketplaces,, WebCargo, CargoWise, and CargoAI. The airline plans to add more direct integrations with other forwarders, in future, as it continues to implement its digitalization strategy.
