IAG CARGO has resumed its year-round service from London to Tokyo three times a week, reports the American Journal of Transportation.
Stopped because of Covid, the service will be welcomed by IAG Cargo's customers on both sides of the Pacific. Tokyo is particularly significant for the export of pharmaceutical goods.
IAG Cargo's is anxious to market its Constant Climate service, especially designed to process time and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals.
Last year the route played an important role in supporting the British Museum to transport over 200 pieces from Japan for a special exhibition, with the help of IAG Cargo's Secure product.
'The route is vital to stay connected with trading partners worldwide, allowing the movement of Japanese pharmaceuticals, automotive and manufacturing goods to reach hundreds of destinations,' said IAG Cargo Far East commercial chief Alec Rayne.
