CEVA Logistics has contracted a range of 86 freighter aircraft to deliver parts and supplies to its customers
CEVA Logistics has contracted a range of 86 freighter aircraft to deliver parts and supplies to its customers. Some 58 flights already been completed and an additional 28 are to follow over the next seven weeks, or longer, depending on how the coronavirus pandemic pans out.
Operating on behalf of customers in the automotive, aerospace, computer and hi-tech electronics sectors, the charters are designed to prevent the halt of production lines and to provide urgent stock replenishment for those which could not otherwise be supplied.
The company has managed to move 4,700 tonnes of air freight to date.
The majority of eastbound flights originated in Shanghai or Hong Kong and were destined for Chicago. A smaller number of flights were bound for Amsterdam, Bangkok, Brussels, Chennai, Dallas, Rickenbacker, Rockford, Sao Paulo, Singapore and Tokyo. Eastbound and other charters included east Midlands to Bangkok, Hong Kong and Brussels, Hanoi to Singapore, and Hong Kong to Tokyo.
??Working extremely closely with our customers, we have been able to deliver a robust charter programme to adapt to these difficult circumstances,' said chief operating officer Guillaume Col.
??Acting in close collaboration with the rest of the CMA CGM Group, we are striving to offer fast and accessible alternatives to our clients throughout the world in order to help keep the global economy moving.??
