Holiday Peak Season Begins

[ November 23, 2015   //   ]

IAG Cargo has ramped up its operations and released a calendar of key dates to ensure its customers can ship their goods in time for the Holiday Season. The countdown is on, as the last maritime shipments capable of getting goods to market in time for the festive season have now departed. The peak cargo period has begun and is expected to continue throughout November and December. Customers will be relying upon air freight more than ever to ensure the shelves are stocked in time for the season’s festivities.
IAG Cargo has enhanced its operations for the holiday period by providing its customers with:
•    2000  New same day connections through its Heathrow hub to enable more last minute movements
•    An increase in capacity at its Premia cargo handling facility to accommodate the expected rise in small packages shipments driven by e-commerce
•    8 New secure trucks at Heathrow to assist with last-minute high-value shipments
