IAG Cargo has launched its innovative cargo connector service in San Francisco CA (USA), the tenth city on the carrier's global network. At no additional cost, freight forwarders in San Francisco can now opt to have IAG Cargo collect and courier deliveries of less than 300 kg direct from their premises to the city's airport.
The cargo connector service at San Francisco international airport is set to benefit a significant amount of IAG Cargo customers, 95% of whom are based within an 8 km radius of the airport. This means that the connector vans are never far away when a pickup request is received. The pioneering collection service is currently available in seven US cities (New York, Los Angeles CA, Chicago IL, Dallas TX, Atlanta GA, Seattle WA and Houston TX), as well as at IAG Cargo's UK hub operation at London Heathrow and at Frankfurt.
