IAG adds US imports delivery to Cargo Connector

IAG Cargo has added an import delivery service to its Cargo Connector product in the US.
Customers in the US now benefit from an import delivery service that takes freight directly from the aircraft, delivering it to the freight forwarders’ handling facilities.
Originally, Cargo Connector was offered as an export collection service, but with the addition of import deliveries customers now benefit from "reduced costs and increased reliability on incoming goods" said IAG Cargo, the freight arm of British Airways and Iberia of Spain.
The new service is available in eight US airports: San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle and Houston for shipments under 300kg.
Joe LeBeau, regional commercial manager, North America at IAG Cargo, commented: “Cargo Connector has proved to be a huge success in the North American market, and beyond. Our new delivery service builds on this success; making it easier for importers to get goods to market quickly and with minimal effort.
"IAG Cargo prides itself on making it as easy as possible for freight forwarders to do business with us and the new Cargo Connector delivery service reflects this perfectly. At the same time it provides us with an important competitive differentiator.”
The Cargo Connector import service, which is offered upon booking, is available Tuesday through to Saturday. Freight screening can be arranged as required.
