KN takes delivery of first freighter


Kuehne+Nagel has put its first Boeing 747-8 freighter into operation under its long-term charter agreement with Atlas Air. The Swiss-based forwarder is chartering the entire capacity of the very last two 747-8F aircraft being delivered by Boeing. The plane, which will operate Transpacific and intra-Asia routings, was handed over at a ceremony at the plane-maker’s Everett Delivery Center.
