NWA Cargo starts Guangdong service to shave day off transit time
NWA Cargo said Monday it has expanded its all-cargo freighter service to include daily frequencies to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in Guandong province.
'These additional frequencies provide shippers with quicker and more convenient access to China's largest market,' said Jim Friedel, president of NWA Cargo and senior vice president-Pacific, in a statement. 'We are working to provide our customers with faster clearances, lower terminal charges and the best schedule between Guangzhou and Japan and the United States.'
Northwest has served the China market for 60 years, starting passenger service to China in 1947. The Minnesota-based airline launched its first Guangzhou cargo service in 2005.
NWA Cargo facilities in Guangzhou can handle special commodities, including perishables and valuables, the company said. Transit times from major Guangdong province manufacturing centers to Guangzhou are up to a day faster than NWA Cargo's previous service from Hong Kong.
