Air China Cargo and Cainiao increase operations at Liege

By Rachelle Harry

Air China Cargo and Cainiao, the logistics division of Alibaba Group, have created a new e-commerce freighter service to enable faster delivery times between China and Europe.

Three flights will be operated each week from Hangzhou to Liege, with Madrid as a final destination, utilising B777F capacity.

Cainiao has established an eHub at Liege, thereby increasing its operations at the airport. The company said it “aims to improve overall logistics efficiency and expand its line-haul network in a bid to deliver globally within 72 hours”.

Meanwhile, Air China Cargo noted that its work with Cainiao at Liege is its first direct cooperation with a cross-border e-commerce player.

“Cainiao’s experience in the field of cross-border e-commerce logistics is [proving] to be very complementarity with Air China Cargo’s airfreight network,” the companies said.

The first flight took place on August 13.
