CEVA Logistics operates charters to maintain Asia-US supply chain

By Rachelle Harry

CEVA Logistics has contracted 86 freighter flights to help maintain the global supply chain as the coronavirus outbreak continues.

The company is using the aircraft on a charter basis to deliver parts and supplies to its customers in the automotive, aerospace, computer and hi-tech electronics sectors.

The majority of flights served routes between Asia (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bangkok and Singapore) and the US (Dallas, Rockford, Rickenbacker). Other charters served European cities, such as Amsterdam and Brussels.

CEVA has already operated more than 58 flights – to transport more than 7,700 tonnes or airfreight – to provide urgent stock replenishment for those which could not otherwise be supplied.

Over the next few weeks, it will operate 28 more charter flights.

Guillaume Col, CEVA Logistics’ chief operating officer, commented: “Working extremely closely with our customers, we have been able to deliver a robust charter programme to adapt to these difficult circumstances.

“Acting in close collaboration with the rest of the CMA CGM Group, we are striving to offer fast and accessible alternatives to our clients throughout the world in order to help keep the global economy moving.”
