Volga-Dnepr Group demonstrates over a three-fold surge in e-commerce sector

Volga-Dnepr Group’s air cargo carries – AirBridgeCargo Airlines and ATRAN Airlines – have achieved over three-fold increase in e-commerce volumes for the first 9 months of 2020.

Over 75,000 tonnes of dedicated packages with online purchases were delivered globally throughout the carriers’ networks onboard Boeing 747 and Boeing 737 freighters, with the major contributing trade lanes being Asia-Europe, Asia-North America and Europe-Russia. The upcoming series of online shopping days – Singles’ Day, Cyber Monday, Thanksgiving and Christmas – will add to the growing volumes of cross-border international shipments, which the companies will leverage with 10 additional B747 charter flights in November from China to Russia and the extended number of B737 flights.
