Logistics firm cargo-partner has added extra airfreight charter capacity from Europe to the US as it looks to meet a “tense market situation”.

The company will offer a weekly “part load” connection from Vienna to Chicago O’Hare on top of existing connections between Asia and Europe.

“Airfreight is currently experiencing another boom – not only because of capacity constraints in airfreight, but also due to an increasing shift from sea transport to airfreight,” the company said.

“This trend has been intensified by a number of factors, and congestions at ports in Europe, America and Asia have also accelerated this development.

“Demand for reliable airfreight solutions is on the rise, particularly in the automotive, high-tech and retail sectors.”

The company said that Vienna Airport can serve as a hub for central and eastern Europe, while Chicago is a “strategic starting point for distribution in the Midwestern US”.

Cargo-partner also operates its own warehouses at both locations.

The company has also been providing regular cargo charter flights from Hong Kong to Budapest since spring 2020 with three weekly departures, as well as flights twice a week from Budapest to Zhengzhou and back.

In addition, it offers weekly flights from Frankfurt to Zhengzhou and Zhengzhou to Cologne form part of this programme.

“These charter services have been set up as a long-term program to provide continuity,” the company said.
