Asian carriers bulk up with Boeing freighters
Forwarder Panalpina is beefing up its intra-Asian capabilities. Its new intra-regional service, announced at the end of August, stretches from China to Singapore and Malaysia, including the coastal gateways in China like Shanghai as well as rapidly growing interior cities. These are places “where the entire market still struggles to find adequate capacity for air and ocean transport,” said Andreas Wolff, intra-Asia trade lane development manager at Panalpina. This new service will not utilize any air cargo flights; it is a trucking network.
