by Inside Logistics Online Staff

In an expansion of its global air freight program, CEVA Logistics has entered into an agreement with Wuxi Sunan Shuofang International Airport Group and its affiliate logistics company to serve the North Asia market.

The new Seoul, South Korea, Wuxi, China, to Chicago (ICN-WUX-ORD) route will be operated with a Boeing 747 full freighter.

A contract signing ceremony was recently held in Wuxi to celebrate the newly launched intercontinental air freight route.

Located in Eastern China near Shanghai, Wuxi is a nationally historic and cultural city that boasts a unique landscape, creativity and foreign trade. For its geographical advantage, economic foundation and administrative support, Wuxi is experiencing continued growth and development in international trade.

The CEVA Skycapacity program currently offers destinations to and from North and South America, Europe and Asia Pacific. The owned, controlled network spans multiple carriers and includes freighter, pax freighter and passenger capacity — available with management, tracking and customs services. Current and new customers are able to benefit from CEVA’s  dozens of flights every week, offering consistent pricing and guaranteed capacity despite market peaks and lows. The network is also available as a spot cargo solution for customers.

 “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,” Says Joanna Zhu, managing director for North Asia, CEVA Logistics.

“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.”
