Agility connects China to Lithuania

Agility has introduced a scheduled air freighter service to connect China via Shanghai to Kaunas, Lithuania.

The freighter has a capacity of 107 tonnes and will initially operate on a weekly basis. Space is guaranteed, with reduced transit times of between one and four days, depending on destination.

The service forms part of a comprehensive logistics offering featuring additional supply chain services: pick-up and warehousing in China, customs clearance in Kaunas and warehousing in Lithuania.

The service is intended to help customers move goods from China into the rapidly growing markets of Northern Europe, the Nordics, Russia and the Baltics.

John Klompers, Agility’s chief commercial officer, said: “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.”
