SPOT Rates

SPOT Rates can be found in Blue under the quoted rate.

What is a SPOT Rate?

A SPOT Rate is an immediate quoted price based on the current market value.

Why am I not seeing a SPOT rate?

If you are not seeing a SPOT rate, the route and commodity that you have selected does not qualify as an online spot price.

If you require further assistance or information please contact your local sales representative or contact ebookingsupport@iagcargo.com.

How long will my SPOT rate be made available?

Your spot will remain active for a short period and will be confirmed once booked. Please be aware that if you cancel and re-book or amend your booking, the rate will be subject to change depending on route availability.

Contact Details

Enter your contact details so we can contact you in the event of changes to your booking.

Once you have filled out the contact details, click ‘SUBMIT’.

Rates and Submission

Review your rate details and click ‘SUBMIT BOOKING’.

You have now successfully made your booking and a summary will appear on your dashboard as CONFIRMED, at which point you will receive a confirmation to the email address linked with your e-Booking account.

Saving Templates

Creating Your Template

Repeat bookings are even easier, with tailored templates allowing you to bulk book shipments for an extended period. This feature was designed for allocations but can also be utilised with any booking type.

Start by clicking ‘New Booking’ in the top left of the screen.

Make the first booking in the same way as an ad hoc freesale booking (review "Making a booking” section) or select a booking previously made.

Click on the booking on your dashboard and click 'SAVE AS TEMPLATE', giving it a suitable name that is clear to you.

The system will store all the important details, such as unit type, unit weight, commodity and product.


Templates can be accessed by clicking the 'MY TEMPLATES' button.

Within the “MY TEMPLATES” section, you will be able to view all of your saved templates.

Create Multiple Bookings

You can choose to book multiple shipments using the same template.

This will prompt you to enter some dates and days of the week.

This will be the period you wish to book the allocations for and the days of the week on which the allocation is to be booked.

Booking period is usually within a month but can be set up for any length of time.

Once you have selected the dates a new screen will open, allowing you to enter the AWBs. You may want to refer to the date column, to match the AWBs with the correct dates.

To save time you can copy and paste the AWBs into this section. When you have completed the AWBs click 'SUBMIT BOOKINGS’.

It is important to use new AWBs in a template as re-using AWBs from a previously cancelled booking can cause a template booking error.

Bookings Departing Within 12 Days

For bookings departing within 12 days, your allocation bookings will appear on your dashboard as SCHEDULED for the first hour after submitting them, after which they will show as CONFIRMED. Any bookings due to depart later than this will appear as SCHEDULED until 12 days from departure.

If you have just made your template for a flight departing within 12 days and your booking hasn't yet been confirmed, it can take up to 90 minutes to be automatically processed.

Booking Amendments

It is easy to change or cancel a booking online and this is all done through your dashboard.

Select the AWB that you would like to amend on your dashboard and click on the '+' to see more options.

To change a booking, click on 'EDIT', this will retrieve the booking details.

Within the "BOOKING" options, click into the section you would like to edit. Delete the information for the portion of the booking you wish to change and enter in the new details.

All booking details can be amended. After the new form matches your new requirements, please resubmit at the bottom of the page.

To cancel a booking, click on the 'CANCEL' button.

This will trigger a cancel call and if successful you will see the AWB disappear from the dashboard under 'BOOKINGS' and will move to 'UPDATES' and show as 'CANCELLED'.
