Alibaba Partners with Atlas Air To Launch Asia to South America Charter Program

Cainiao Smart Logistics Network, (“Cainiao”), the logistics arm of Alibaba Group Holding Limited, today announced a partnership to launch a charter program with Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. to enhance Alibaba’s extensive logistics network as cross-border trade between China and Latin America continues to expand.

Cainiao’s parcel volume to South America reached over eight million packages in the third quarter of 2020, double the number transported during the second quarter of this year. Beginning in November, Atlas Air will operate three weekly charter flights dedicated to Cainiao, linking China with Brazil and Chile, reducing the overall shipping time from a week to three days on average.
