E-freight goes live in Korea

THE International Air Transport Association (IATA), announced that IATA e-freight is ‘live’ in South Korea, the first new location to do so in 2008.

Led by Korea Customs Service and with Korean Air Cargo and Asiana Cargo, IATA e-freight has been launched on two trade lanes, between South Korea and Singapore, and South Korea and Hong Kong with further expansion to other routes planned.

Also involved in the implementation in South Korea are Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, DHL Global Forwarding, Pantos Logistics, Hanaro Technology Network System (HTNS), MCI Global Logistics Inc and Samsung Electronics Logitech. Other stakeholders, including Air France/KLM, Air Canada, Emirates and Cosmo Airfreight Consolidators, are part of the South Korean e-freight group and will soon start e-freight operations from South Korea.
