E-commerce logistics group Zongteng Group has selected WFS to handle its new freighter flights between China and Paris.

The service will utilise a B777 freighter operated by Central Airlines from Shenzhen to Paris Charles de Gaulle and will provide around 15,000 tonnes of annual capacity.

Zongteng expects to add a second B777F in the third quarter of the year, which will increase annual capacity to around 28,000 tonnes through six to eight weekly flights.

WFS has been appointed to provide ramp and cargo handling services for the flights.

“The strong growth in demand for cross-border e-commerce capacity from China to Europe requires more cargo capacity as well as the support of fast and reliable handling on the ground in order to meet customers’ service expectations. We are confident this partnership between Zongteng and WFS will deliver these high service standards,” said Laurent Bernard, vice president cargo France at WFS.

Zongteng Group is a provider of cross-border e-commerce services, including fulfilment and customised supply chain solutions provided by its sub-brands, YunExpress, Elogistic and Worldtech. It had a reported a turnover in 2021 of €3.8bn.

The new Shenzhen-Paris freighter route is the company’s latest initiative to realise the potential of Sino-European cross-border trade.

Zongteng operated its first flight on the new service last week.
