CEVA Logistics is expanding its air freight programme Skycapacity to serve the North Asia market with a strategic cooperation agreement with Wuxi Sunan Shuofang International Airport Group and its affiliate logistics company.
The leading forwarder will start a weekly lane to add air freight capacity from Asia to US, which will take the Seoul to Chicago via Wuxi (ICN-WUX-ORD) route. This intercontinental route will be operated with a B747 full freighter.
CEVA says its Skycapacity programme offers different destinations to and from North and South America, Europe and Asia Pacific with owned and controlled capacity of dozens of flights every week. Aside from offering consistent pricing and guaranteed capacity despite market peaks and lows, the network is also available as a spot cargo solution for customers, the company added.
The forwarder’s owned and controlled air network spans multiple carriers and includes freighter, pax freighter and passenger capacity, with leading management, tracking and customs services, CEVA noted.
“The new ICN-WUX-ORD route is part of CEVA’s SKYCAPACITY program that offers stable service and solutions to our customers in the challenging 2021 market,” said Joanna Zhu, Managing Director for North Asia, CEVA Logistics.
“The new lane marks the very first time for us that an airfreight route connects two countries in North Asia, expanding our air freight service capabilities. We are also impressed with the dedication and professionalism of the Sunan Airport, as well as the local government’s efficiency. Wuxi is definitely considered an important airfreight hub for CEVA, and we expect to connect more routes here in the near future.”
