With expertise in logistics and worldwide transport, cargo-partner is pleased to announce the introduction of a new air freight solution from Chicago in the USA, to specifically support customers with the export of goods to the United Kingdom.

cargo-partner’s new air freight consolidation between Chicago and London Heathrow Airport commenced on June 1, 2023 and is already supporting local and international customers. The service provides weekly departures, with an in-house team of trade experts overseeing the service.

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 Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) via Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and then on to the final destination of Heathrow Airport (LHR) in London, UK.

Customers benefit from cargo-partner’s network of office branches across the USA and the UK, providing local knowledge and expertise, as well as access to a gateway of further airport, storage and transport connections within both countries and the wider continents.

Speaking about this new solution, Ralf Schneider, President cargo-partner USA & 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. Introducing this regular air console to the market will support businesses on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean with a cost-effective, flexible air freight solution.

“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.”
