CMA CGM appoints Hactl to run its Hong Kong air offering

Hactl appointed by CMA CGM AIR CARGO for new Hong Kong flights

The CMA CGM Group has selected Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) to handle its CMA CGM Air Cargo’s new Hong Kong services.

Under the new partnership, Hactl will provide a total cargo solution to CMA CGM Air Cargo, including terminal and ramp handling, as well as documentation services.

The Honk Kong services began in early September.

The group’s air arm has added five scheduled flights per week from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport to Hong Kong, joining its existing services to the US.

The new services are being operated with brand new Boeing 777F aircraft.

Capacity on the flights is being marketed by CMA CGM Air Cargo, with the support of GSSA ECS Group.

“We are delighted to welcome CMA CGM Air Cargo to our carrier family, and wish them every success with this new venture,” said Hactl Chief Executive Wilson Kwong.

“We are honoured that they are entrusting their important new service to our care, and look forward to supporting them with comprehensive, efficient and resilient ground handling services.”

In May, CMA CGM signed a long-term strategic partnership with Air France-KLM Group to combine their cargo networks, full freighter capacity, and dedicated services.

More carriers have lately added to fleets in a bid to complement their logistics offering.

Most recently, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company SA (MSC) started developing a new air cargo segment, with a new solution be available from early 2023.
