EFL has launched a weekly charter flight to Pittsburgh International Airport to move cargo from Asia, using a Qatar Airways Cargo Boeing 777 Freighter.
The service offers customers a transit time of 72 hours to get cargo from Asia and move it out the same day to regional distribution centres and retail stores in the USA.
The global logistics provider says global brands can consolidate cargo from multiple sourcing markets, enabling them to improve efficiency on just-in-time inventory models.
The weekly Pittsburgh flight follows the hub and spoke model, and collaborating with Qatar Airways Cargo enables EFL offices in the Far East and Indian Sub-continent to access capacity without interruption.
S. Senthilnathan, group CEO of EFL says: “At a time when most in the industry are being cautious in adding capacity and vary of upcoming challenges, this latest solution is proof of our commitment to always prioritising the needs of our customers.
“We are confident that this new collaboration will continue to enhance our efforts in nurturing engagement with customers as well as carriers and drive us to develop more innovative, fit-for-purpose solutions.”
