Kuehne+Nagel operated its first charter cargo flight into Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport in Alabama, from Stuttgart, Germany on 2 April. The weekly 747-8F flight is aimed at the automotive, aviation, and pharmaceutical industries and others that are experiencing congestion at major hub airports.

It follows the signing of a partnership between the Swiss-based logistics operator and the US airport in February.

Senior vice president, air logistics at Kuehne+Nagel, Greg Martin, said: “Our vision is to make Birmingham into a long-term gateway to and from the Southeastern Corridor of the U.S. and we’re pleased to be able to provide customers with alternative options that support their supply chain needs.”
