AirBridgeCargo (ABC) entrusts Wallenborn for its European distribution needs

ABC has awarded the Wallenborn Group its European wide logistics effective January 1st, 2010, based on the principle of full cargo distribution and co-ordination outside its flown hubs

Luxembourg – Wallenborn will provide a full distribution package out of the six  hubs which AirBridgeCargo airlines serves in Europe operating Boeing 747 400 full freighters connecting Europe with China, the most efficient transit times over Russian airspace. 28 flights are operated connecting China with Europe per week. It’s strategically  placed hub operation mean full coverage and optimization over the  network it is developing in Europe. Wallenborn operates scheduled services reaching some 100 airports in Europe and has developed a dedicated Service Centre Concept at the key airports to serve its  
key accounts in all operational ways.

Wolfgang Meier, Executive Senior Vice President Sales of AirBridge Cargo stated, “In order to make sure we deliver to the quality  
standards required by our customer base, we must have the right  partners on the ground. Wallenborn with the recent acquisitions is now a true pan European player that covers all points in Europe with quality standards our clients require such as TAPA and Cargo 2000. 

We look forward to integrating these benchmarks into our company in offering a seamless product from quotation to proof of delivery. This is a commercial decision based on service and will play a key  role in our development as a network carrier over the next years”.

Dr Ludwig Bertsch adds: “We are delighted with the decision that  AirBridge has chosen Wallenborn for the entire European network.  This is an airline instigating new distribution products and  collaboration models, and one that is able to realize its strategy  for success in the most difficult circumstances as well noted last  year. The recently developed network that is still growing combined  with their fleet expansion program makes AirBridge a most  innovative partner to work with for now and the future. The concept  of Wallenborn Transports is based in 4PL models and operational dedication to cover large distribution networks covering all requirements from trucking, handling and customer service. Our key account management concepts are based on strategic and operational motivations and interests. This is unique in its approach and  transparency in airfreight. We’re glad that the management team of  AirBridge has recognized this from the market and both parties are fully committed to deliver consistent high standards to the end customer long term”
