Cargolux & DB Schenker connected via API for Quotes and Bookings


Cargolux and DB Schenker have launched an API providing a direct interface between both companies’ systems to generate tailored and immediate, bookable quotes. Cargolux’s Austria, Spain and Portugal offices were selected to participate in this innovative approach in collaboration with long-standing customer DB Schenker.

“The implementation of API offers customers more choice and flexibility when booking their cargo with us. Launching this venture in collaboration with a key customer such as DB Schenker highlights both companies’ wish to pursue digitalization and continue looking for innovative solutions in the industry”, says Domenico Ceci, Executive Vice-President Sales & Marketing.

The API interface allows DB Schenker to directly connect its operating system to Cargolux’s system to receive quotes and book their freight onboard a Cargolux flight. In addition, the interface offers dynamic pricing options based on specific requirements such as weight, routing, and product type.

“The new connectivity will further transform our joint process into the latest technology and is clearly a remarkable milestone of professional collaboration. Furthermore, this innovation benefits all stakes of our transportation chain through digital proposition and exchange – Cargolux as the preferred partner, our global customer base and the entire Air Freight network of DB Schenker. Therefore, we are very excited to establish it globally, says Stefan Spriestersbach, Head of Production Systems, DB Schenker Global Air Freight.

Cargolux is amidst an extensive sales transformation project, and initiatives such as the API highlight the airline’s commitment to innovation and service excellence. Cargolux is committed to implementing flexible and lean processes to enhance customer experience and contribute to digitalization along the supply chain. In addition, by increasing its “speed to market” capabilities, the airline complements its service offering while offering the quality service customers have come to expect.
