In an expansion of its global SKYCAPACITY air freight program, CEVA Logistics recently entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with Wuxi Sunan Shuofang International Airport Group and its affiliate logistics company to serve the North Asia market.
The new ICN-WUX-ORD route will be operated with a Boeing 747 full freighter.
A contract signing ceremony was recently held in Wuxi, China, to celebrate the newly launched intercontinental air freight route.
Starting from Seoul, South Korea, to Chicago, U.S., via Wuxi, the weekly lane brings more freight shipment support for customers in these and connected markets.
The owned, controlled network spans multiple carriers and includes freighter, pax freighter and passenger capacity — all available with leading management, tracking and customs services.
The network is also available as a spot cargo solution for customers.
Says Joanna Zhu, Managing Director for North Asia, CEVA Logistics: “The new ICN-WUX-ORD route is part of CEVA’s SKYCAPACITY program that offers stable service and solutions to our customers in the challenging 2021 market.
“The new lane marks the very first time for us that an airfreight route connects two countries in North Asia, expanding our air freight service capabilities.
“We are also impressed with the dedication and professionalism of the Sunan Airport, as well as the local government’s efficiency.
“Wuxi is definitely considered an important airfreight hub for CEVA, and we expect to connect more routes here in the near future.”
