Modern Logistics now has two 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) aircraft in operation.

The Brazilian integrated logistics company and cargo airline told Air Cargo News it took delivery of its second 737-800BCF this month.

This second aircraft is now “in service” said the company.

The Brazilian integrated logistics company and cargo airline acquired its first 737-800BCF in October last year.

These two aircraft are expected to support Modern Logistics’ efforts to expand into other Latin American markets, particularly Argentina, Colombia, and Central America, as well as establishing a facility in Miami.

Leased through Babcock & Brown Aircraft Management (BBAM), the 737-800BCFs have passed certification by PCA Airworthiness and have received final approval by ANAC, Brazil’s aviation regulator.

The introduction of the new 737-800BCFs is part of a fleet renewal initiative by the airline to enhance operational efficiency. 

In addition to the two 737-800BCFs, Modern Logistics’ fleet includes one 737-400F (25374) and one 737-300F (24219). The company recently returned a 737-300F (24463) off lease after removing it from service in December 2023. That aircraft was purchased by Frontera Flight Holdings.

The company also returned a 737-400F (24125) off lease in January 2023. Aeronaves TSM acquired that aircraft in March 2023 and put it into service in late 2023.
