Agility launches new freighter service
Agility, has announced the introduction of a scheduled freighter service connecting origins in China via Shanghai to Kaunas, Lithuania.
With few freight options that cover this routing, the new service is expected to deliver stable and faster access, helping customers move goods from China into the rapidly growing markets of Northern Europe, the Nordics, Russia and the Baltics.
“Northern Europe, the Nordics, Russia and the Baltics all show increasing demand for air freight,” said Michael Blaufuss, Agility’s senior vice president of Air Freight. “With our own freighter service, we are now well positioned to offer end-to-end supply chain solutions that offer reliability and speed on these important trade routes.”
The freighter has a capacity of 107 tons and will initially operate on a weekly basis. It is anticipated the new service will allow customers faster access to market with reduced transit times of between one and four days, depending on destination.
