AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has announced a 25% increase in volumes of special commodities in 2018, the company said.
ABC pharma volumes increased by more than 60 percent year-on-year, while dangerous goods shipments using the airline´s ABC DG product rose by 40 percent. ABC XL demand for oversize and heavy cargo increased by over 20 percent versus 2017, and e-commerce business delivered via AirBridgeCargo´s ABC e-com product was up 6 percent.
Overall, total volumes carried in 2018 went up by 2 percent, exceeding 700,000 tons across ABC´s growing international route network. The increase is attributed to the introduction of new destinations, notably Ho Chi Minh City, Shenzhen, Budapest, and Columbus, which complemented the airline´s existing routes and opened new market growth opportunities for ABC´s customers. On top of this, effective fleet utilization and team strengthening facilitated the company´s growth.
ABC is one of the leading carriers with dedicated airlift for special cargo.
