IAG’s Cargo Connector is going to San Francisco
20 / 03 / 2015
IAG Cargo has extended its Cargo Connector service to San Francisco, the tenth city for the local pick-up service.
It offers freight forwarders at or near the airport a free collection for consignments up to 300 kilos and IAG Cargo estimates that 95 per cent of its customers are based within a five-mile radius of the airport. This means that the Connector vans are never far away when a pickup request is received.
Regional commercial manager for North America, Joe Le Beau, says Cargo Connector was “more cost efficient for smaller freight forwarders that would normally pay a third party to deliver their freight, but also with our GKAs (global key account customers) who really appreciate the peace of mind this service offers."
Cargo Connector is already available in seven US cities – New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle and Houston – and at London Heathrow and Frankfurt.
Drivers use IAG Cargo-branded vans and collect freight and process new cargo bookings on-the-spot for IAG Cargo’s network of 350 destinations.
Le Beau said that vans arrive at agents’ premises 15 minutes after IAG has their booking details.
