the first tech-enabled freight forwarder and customs broker, will
launch its first weekly cargo flight between Los Angeles and Hong Kong
The service will provide end-to-end freight forwarding service to
manufacturers, exporters and trading companies based in Southern China,
Greater China and Asia Pacific.
Integrating the air freight service with its online supply chain
management platform, the company intends to provide more comprehensive,
efficient and reliable freight forwarding service to customers amidst
air freight space constraints in the market.
Operated by Boeing 747-400 freighters, the private air freight service
will feature two flights per week, with a total capacity of 1,600 tonnes
of cargo per month. To cater to the rise of demand during peak season,
three flights will be operated each week, increasing total cargo
capacity to 2,400 tonnes per month.
At the initial stage, the private cargo flights will target
manufacturers, exporters, and trading companies in Shenzhen, Guangzhou,
Hong Kong and other major cities in Southern China, as well as importers
based in North America.
"The rapid growth of e-commerce, shortened consumer goods cycle and the
growing demand of consumer products have led to the rise of demand for
more flexible and efficient air freight services," said senior vice
president Neel Jones Shah in a statement.
