CargoLogicAir has marked another year of growth with the delivery of its fourth Boeing 747 Freighter.

The 747-400ERF joins the fleet on an operating lease and will initially be used to meet customer demand on US routes.

The delivery keeps CargoLogicAir on track with its five-year growth strategy, which is based on operating a fleet of five freighters by 2020.

Chief executive officer, David Kerr says 2018 was the airline’s busiest year of operations with volumes and revenue doubling the first nine months.

He says: “The delivery of our fourth 747F will enable us to meet peak season demand, especially in our core US market, and increase our options in terms of frequencies and new routes as we head into 2019.

“We are continuing to consult with our customers to identify where they need maindeck cargo capacity and expect to be adding new destinations to our network in the first quarter of next year.”

CargoLogicAir’s network is designed to support customers in key industry sectors requiring cargo services such as Houston and the United Arab Emirates for oil and gas shipments, Atlanta for pharmaceutical, aerospace and automotive cargo, Mexico City for automotive parts and components, and Hong Kong’s e-commerce market to the UK and Europe.

The airline’s fleet consists of three 747-400s and one 747-8 offering capacity of up to 139 tonnes as well as nose and side-door loading capabilities.
