MAERSK launches new Chicago Airfreight Gateway
Maersk has inaugurated the new Chicago Air Freight Gateway near O’Hare Airport designed to offer direct planeside recovery with transfers to the new facility. About 70 per cent of the USA is in an overnight truck drive enabling shipments from Asia and Europe to speed up to their destination when timing is essential. The facility serves Maersk’s air cargo hub in Rockford Intl. Airport –a 24/7, fast growing, air cargo hub. “We want to grow our presence and logistics services in locations and today’s Chicago inauguration is a vital step in our integrated offering to customers,” said Mike Meierkort, Regional Head, North America Logistics and Services.
