IAG Cargo enhances Cargo Connector service in US

IAG Cargo has announced the launch of the company’s Cargo Connector delivery service in the US. Cargo Connector provides an import delivery service that takes freight direct from the aircraft and delivers it to the forwarders handling facilities. The new service is available in eight US airports: San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle and Houston for shipments under 300 kilos.

Joe LeBeau, Regional Commercial Manager, North America at IAG Cargo, commented, “Cargo Connector has proved to be a huge success in the North American market, and beyond. Our new delivery service builds on this success; making it easier for importers to get goods to market quickly and with minimal effort. IAG Cargo prides itself on making it as easy as possible for freight forwarders to do business with us and the new Cargo Connector delivery service reflects this perfectly. At the same time, it provides us with an important competitive differentiator.”

The Cargo Connector import service is expected to be available Tuesday through to Saturday with a freight screening as required. IAG Cargo has been operating a small freight collection service through Cargo Connector since 2012 and the service is also available at IAG Cargo’s UK hub operation at London Heathrow and Frankfurt, Germany. Originally, Cargo Connector was offered as an export collection service.
