LATAM Cargo launches Huntsville freighter service to transport Panalpina cargo
Dec 05, 2018: Last Sunday, LATAM Cargo commenced weekly direct cargo service between the cities of Bogota, Colombia, and Huntsville, Alabama, United States.
The new route that eliminates the need to connect through Miami comes in response to Panalpina’s interest to cut down cargo travel time from South America to North America.
The new service launched to transport Panalpina cargo, mainly perishables, will help the forwarder reach Huntsville in approximately four and a half hours, cutting down distribution time and simplifying the logistics process.
The freighter aircraft will have the capacity to transport some 50 tonnes of cargo per flight.
“We are continuously supporting our customers with their projects by offering the best alternatives possible. This allows us to fulfill our desire to be perceived as strategic partners and to expand their business together,” said Andres Bianchi, CEO of LATAM Cargo Group.
“We will also use LATAM passenger flights from other countries in South America to feed our freighter out of Bogota, it is not only a service for the flowers from Colombia, but for all other perishable markets from the entire region. Together with LATAM Cargo, we are creating a new logistics import hub for the South American perishable products into USA market,” commented Roberto Schiavone, senior vice president head of Airfreight/Americas Region Panalpina.
Over the last three years, the LATAM Group has launched 67 new routes to connect the region to the world, with more than 140 destinations in 25 countries.
Only in 2018 LATAM opened 27 routes that include seven new destinations: San Jose (Costa Rica), Boston, Las Vegas, Pisco (Peru), Rome, Lisbon and Tel Aviv; and five new cargo-only routes: Miami-Brussels, Brussels-Montevideo, Amsterdam-Madrid, Madrid-Guarulhos-Santiago, Miami-Antofagasta-Santiago, plus the all-new Bogota-Huntsville service.
