UPS extends air cargo reach in Spain

UPS plans to increase its air cargo capacity from Seville and Vitoria to its Cologne European air hub in Germany.

According to the firm, the new flights will allow it to offer later pick up times for export shipments in southern and northern Spain.

The plans are for this to happen from the 5th June when a Boeing 737-400 with a payload of 20 tons starts flying between the cities. It is to leave Seville every business day, flying to Cologne via Vitoria, returning to Seville via Vitoria the following morning.

The new route will add to UPS existing flights to Cologne from Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid. 41 flights connect the UPS hub in Cologne to clients businesses in Spain and their customers all over Europe and the rest of the world.

According to UPS: “As a result of the new flight, UPS customers in the north and south of Spain will now benefit from later pick-up times, and 85% of the Spanish population can benefit from having their packages exported on the same day they are picked up. UPS is now offering customers up to four-and-a-half hours of additional production time with pick-up times as late as 19:00 for UPS Express shipments.”
