cargo-partner has introduced a new air freight consolidation between Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and London Heathrow Airport (LHR).
The new service supports local and international customers with weekly departures and benefits from the support of an in-house team of trade experts.
Ralf Schneider, president of cargo-partner USA and regional director Americas, said: “We’re excited to continue to expand our global network and create reliable air capacity for our customers between the USA and the UK.”
The new service commenced on June 1, 2023 and cargo-partner states the regular air consol will support businesses on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean with a cost-effective, flexible air freight solution.
The cut-off date for goods arriving to cargo-partner’s Chicago warehouse is Thursday each week, with the team finalising all arrangements for a Sunday departure.
The goods are routed by air from ORD via Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), and then on to the final destination of LHR.
Schneider added: “Our goal is to provide a reliable service for general cargo shipments originating in the Midwestern US. Thanks to our extensive network and expert in-house customs teams, we can also offer customs, brokerage and final mile services at competitive rates.”
