Delta Cargo is continuing to co-locate with partners by sharing cargo warehouse facilities with Air France KLM in Seattle.

The move will allow more space for cargo capacity and make shipping easier and more convenient for the airlines’ shared customers.

The Seattle warehouse has hosted Virgin Atlantic since 26 March 2017 and the ‘One-Roof’ partnership has handled over 1.2 million pounds of cargo with a daily Boeing 787 flight.

Delta says the initiative is beneficial not only for the increased cargo capacity but also to help deliver a coordinated cargo operation among Delta’s partners and to add employment opportunities at the station.

Other stations under the ‘One-Roof’ including at Atlanta with Air France KLM and Virgin Atlantic; Boston with Air France, Virgin Atlantic and Alitalia; Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and Detroit on seasonal KLM services; and New York John F. Kennedy International, Washington-Dulles, Miami and Orlando with Virgin Atlantic.

The airline expects monthly volumes of more than 400,000 pounds of valuable cargo to be flown on Delta and newly launched Air France flights between Seattle and Paris.
