IAG Cargo ships 1,000 Critical shipments

IAG Cargo has shipped more than 1,000 ‘Critical’ shipments since October last year when it launched the services for urgent and emergency shipments, providing guaranteed capacity and enhanced shipment monitoring for ‘must-fly’ goods.

The 1,000th shipment was a shipment of automotive parts from Europe to South America.

Commercial director David Shepherd said: “Week on week we are seeing new orders and repeat business coming in from customers who need to ensure they can get their goods to where they’re needed, when they’re needed. We’re also seeing freight forwarders using the service to guarantee capacity on some of our busier routes. The product has proved to be robust, even during the Christmas peak, and we expect to see demand continue to grow over the coming months.”
