Air cargo operator Volga-Dnepr Group, together with its partner, CargoLogicAir, has expanded its collaboration with Cainiao Network in pursuing the growing demand for e-commerce shipments and operated its first flight for Cainiao from Hong Kong (China) to Madrid (Spain).
ABC’s Boeing 747 freighter carried over 100 tonnes of parcels, all of which contained high-tech products and consumer goods exporting from the sellers on AliExpress e-commerce platform.
The flights will be gradually increased till three in August and will be operated via Liege (Belgium).
The parcels will be quickly distributed all over Europe, ensuring the delivery timeframes of the whole process from China to Europe are kept within 10 days.
The new route will support cross-border deliveries, which have been booming for the last years and intensified during the Covid-19 lockdown period when consumers refocused from offline to online shopping.
