Vienna is a hub for Central and Eastern Europe, while Chicago is a strategic starting point for distribution in the US Midwest. Cargo-partner operates its own warehouses at both locations and can offeer door-to-door solutions.
It already runs regular cargo charter flights from Hong Kong to Budapest with three weekly departures, as well as flights twice a week from Budapest to Zhengzhou and back, plus weekly flights from Frankfurt to Zhengzhou and Zhengzhou to Cologne.
It also offers a groupage service with weekly departures from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Munich, Frankfurt and Vienna.
