China Southern Cargo Offers New U.S.-China Service
Air carrier China Southern has inaugurated a new cargo route linking Chicago and Anchorage with Guangzhou and Tianjin. The new, twice-weekly service is operated with long-range, twin-engine Boeing 777-200F aircraft.
The new freighter service brings to five the number the carrier offers between the U.S. and China. The others link Chicago, Los Angeles and Anchorage with Shanghai, Pudong, Tianjin, and Guangzhou.
China Southern Cargo provides both same-day and second-day delivery service on China-U.S. freighter routes, as well as same time, value added services such as BUP delivery, full truck delivery, DG and temperature controlled transportation to more than 50 cities across the U.S.
Added to the cargo capacity of its 25 weekly passenger flights, China Southern’s total China-U.S. cargo capacity now exceeds more than 2,000 tons.
China Southern Cargo is a member of the 12-member SkyTeam Cargo alliance and currently operates 12 B777-200Fs and two B747-400F cargo aircraft.
The carrier’s freighters operate on 15 routes, offering 46 flights daily from its Shanghai and Guangzhou hubs, which link domestic Chongqing and Tianjin with Paris, London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Chicago, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City.
