NORTHWEST TO RAISE ASIAN RATES
Northwest Airlines said it will raise cargo rates 4 percent for
shipments booked from the eastern United States to all Asian destinations, except Manila,
Guam and Saipan, effective Nov. 1.
The announcement comes after Northwest increased Asian freight prices for
U.S. West Coast shippers in September. The 4-percent increase will apply at all U.S.
cities east of the Rocky Mountains.
