CEVA Logistics will extend its air cargo charter operation with a new service from South Korea and China to the US.

The service will operate on a route of Incheon-Wuxi Sunan Shuofang-Chicago ORD utilising an Atlas Air Boeing 747 freighter.

The logistics firm said the new route is an expansion of its SkyCapacity airfreight programme, launched in April.

The programme covers North and South America, Europe and Asia Pacific with destinations served including Liege, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Hanoi, Bangkok, Singapore, Los Angeles, New York JFK, Chicago ORD and Atlanta.

The CEVA-owned and controlled network spans multiple carriers and includes freighter, pax freighter and passenger capacity. The network is also available as a spot cargo solution for customers.

The move comes as the industry prepares for another busy peak season and forwarders are increasingly utilising charter flights to secure capacity.

Joanna Zhu, managing director, North Asia at CEVA Logistics, said: “The new lane marks the very first time for us that an airfreight route connects two countries in North Asia, expanding our airfreight service capabilities.”

“We are also impressed with the dedication and professionalism of the Sunan Airport, as well as the local government’s efficiency,” Zhu added. “Wuxi [Sunan Shuofang Airport] is definitely considered an important airfreight hub for CEVA and we expect to connect more routes here in the near future.”
