CHINA / BALTIC – Agility Logistics has introduced a new air freighter service between Shanghai to Kaunas in Lithuania. With few freight options that cover this routing, the new service delivers stable and faster access, helping customers move goods from China into the rapidly growing markets of Northern Europe, Russia and the Baltic and Nordic states.

The service forms part of a logistics offering featuring additional supply chain management options such as pick-up and warehousing in China, customs clearance in Kaunas and warehousing in Lithuania.

Together with its partner in Lithuania, Hoptrans, Agility provides freight forwarding over land from Kaunas to a wide range of onward destinations including all major cities in the region. At the destination, customer options will include customs clearance, warehousing in bonded and non-bonded facilities.

With a departure on Saturday morning from Shanghai and customs cut-off on Friday morning, this new service allows customers to load their cargo for delivery over the weekend, with many destinations receiving cargo on Monday.

“Northern Europe, the Nordics, Russia and the Baltics all show increasing demand for air freight,” said Michael Blaufuss, Agility’s Senior Vice President of Air Freight.

“With our own freighter service, we are now uniquely positioned to offer end-to-end supply chain solutions that offer reliability and speed on these important trade routes.”

John Klompers, Agility’s Chief Commercial Officer added:

“This new service underlines Agility’s commitment to our customers in fast developing markets. This service will help them build robust and reliable transportation links that in turn connect their customers and operations around the world.”
