Automotive focus

A second Euro–Mexican consolidated airfreight service. Cargo-Partner, a global logistics services provider from Vienna, has added a consolidated airfreight service from Frankfurt to the Mexican capital to its existing such link from Budapest. The option was designed with the automotive industry in mind.

The market for cargo flights from Europe to Mexico has suffered from unstable rates and capacities of late, which has led to strong growth in demand for reliable and cost-efficient airfreight solutions. Cargo-Partner (CP) is aiming to satisfy said demand through a new route in its consolidated air cargo network.

The Austrian company, which is headquartered in Vienna, has already operated in Mexico for two years, running two branch offices in Mexico City and Puebla. Approximately 50 employees provide air, sea and road transport services there, including door-to-door solutions and customs clearance options.

Growing demand

CP’s service offers regular groupage services between Frankfurt airport and the Mexican capital’s new Felipe Ángeles airport (NLU), thus catering to growing demand from automotive players for links from Western Europe to Mexico.

Cargo-Partner already operates a dense network in Europe, with offices in Germany, Belgium, Poland, Czechia and the Netherlands, which enables it to offer comprehensive pre-processing services. Its subsidiaries in Mexico additionally facilitate easy distribution there.

Exporters from Central and Eastern Europe also benefit from Cargo-Partner’s existing scheduled services from Budapest to Mexico. This latest move has thus completed the company’s portfolio of consolidated airfreight services that connect the capitals of Hungary and Austria with a series of destinations worldwide.

These airfreight solutions to Mexico, which include specialised solutions such as just-in-time deliveries, were designed specifically with the needs of the Latin American country’s thriving automotive sector in mind.

Optimising its hub structure

Jo Feiks, Cargo-Partner’s corporate director for air cargo product management, told the media that “our services from Frankfurt offer fixed capacities, stable transit times as well as long-term rates. This allows our customers to benefit from regular and reliable services in an otherwise unpredictable market environment.”

At the same time the Austrian firm’s European network, in which the air cargo gateways in Frankfurt, Vienna and Budapest serve as the main hubs, enables the company to meet its clients’ individual needs.

Airfreight groupage options to and from Asia have also become more attractive of late in the face of the crisis in the Red Sea, CP’s managers added. Demand for its Vienna–Chicago air groupage service also remains high.
