SkyTeam Cargo is marking 20 years since the launch of the global air cargo alliance, in 2002.
Designed to simplify international shipping of all types of cargo – from pharma and perishables to luxury goods – to destinations almost anywhere in the world, the branded products are offered consistently across all SkyTeam Cargo members.
A rebranding followed in 2018, with SkyTeam Cargo’s key pillar products developed to ensure “bespoke and straightforward” shipping solutions across almost 800 destinations in 150 countries.
Express – for expedited shipments of up to 100kg. Express offers fast connectivity with late availability and includes Express Heavy for larger shipments requiring fast dispatch.
General – a shipping solution for both bulk and unit load device shipping modes, for all commodities not requiring specialist handling.
Specialized – designed to take any kind of cargo anywhere in the world, this caters for atypical and high-value cargo shipments including aerospace parts, art, fashion, fresh produce, pharma and more.
Customized – a tri-partite contract between the shipper, forwarding agent and SkyTeam Cargo airline offering a personalised handling service.
“For two decades, SkyTeam Cargo has proudly been the only group of airlines to offer aligned global shipping solutions tailor-made to the specific handling requirements of each type of cargo,” said SkyTeam Cargo’s VP Nico van der Linden. “Our branded products continue to evolve to give cargo customers confidence that their precious shipments are in safe hands at every step.”
SkyTeam Cargo’s members are: Aeroflot (suspended), Aerolíneas Argentinas Cargo, Aeromexico Cargo, Air France-KLM Cargo, China Cargo Airlines, Czech Airlines Cargo, Delta Cargo, ITA Airways Cargo, Korean Air Cargo, and Saudia Cargo.
