The world’s leading air cargo carrier has partnered with iNOMAD, a Korea-based cutting-edge air cargo platform.
The partnership with iNOMAD will enable better connectivity for one of the airline’s major customers in South Korea, Woojung Air and also help the airline increase its footprint in South Korea as SMEs operating with Woojung Air will be able to compare Qatar Airways Cargo’s offerings on the iNOMAD portal.

iNOMAD is an air cargo platform, Korea-based, with a cutting-edge logistics system created by its own software development team and air logistics experts. They have designed the system to transmit and receive information from logistics-related service providers and master loaders including airlines. Being the first company connecting API(application program interface) with airlines in Northeast Asia, the platform is operating as an online all-in-one portal that provides air cargo booking, rates, schedule, tracking, etc. Starting from South Korea, they have been rapidly expanding the business to Hong Kong (established in 2022) and Vietnam (to be launched in 2024).

Along with this, iNOMAD is now expecting the opening of a logistics center of 20,000 square meters in Sep 2023 as an air cargo platform terminal in the Incheon International Airport, one of the most active airports in the world, which would be a milestone in developing a smart logistics system. The logistics center will be equipped with various smart devices and a security x-ray inspection system to provide safe and advanced logistics services.
