Etihad Cargo has appointed Wallenborn Transports as its road feeder services (RFS) partner for Europe.

The deal covers the transport of cargo between Etihad Cargo’s main European gateways, including Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt, and offline stations.

In total, Wallenborn will provide road transport between 90 airports in 27 countries on the continent.

Etihad Cargo head of cargo operations and delivery Thomas Schürmann said: “Strategic partnerships with leading RFS providers such as Wallenborn strengthen Etihad Cargo’s value proposition and will enable the carrier to further expand operations in Europe, which is a key territory for the airline.”

Frantz Wallenborn, Wallenborn Group president & chief executive, added: “This partnership will give Etihad Cargo’s customers access to a comprehensive network connecting over 90 airports and a range of specialised logistics solutions, such as GDP-validated transport for temperature-sensitive healthcare products. Highlights of our partnership include dedicated capacity, 24/7 customer support and handling services in 27 countries.”

Etihad Cargo has entered into partnerships with RFS providers around the world to “bolster its operational footprint and ensure the efficient end-to-end journey of cargo”.

Earlier this year, the carrier announced it would add a series of new flights to its European network.
