Kuehne+Nagel bags the very last Boeing 747 “Jumbojet”

The logistics group Kuehne+Nagel has bagged the very last Boeing 747 “Jumbojet” from the American aircraft factory’s assembly line in Seattle.

Kuehne+Nagel will deploy the Boeing 747-8F aircraft on routes across the Pacific Ocean in cooperation with the air cargo company Atlas Air, with which Kuehne+Nagel has recently got in a long-term charter agreement.

Similar to many other logistics companies and several container shipping companies, Kuehne+Nagel, has also strengthened their air freight as a result of the bottlenecks in the transport market during the corona pandemic.

Shipping companies like MSC, CMA CGM and Maersk have pioneered into air freight to varying degrees, similarly Kuehne+Nagel has also stepped into the sector, with the new Boeing 747 as its second aircraft. The first was a cargo plane of the same type. The operation of these two airplanes will be done by Atlas Air.

“This aircraft will strengthen our access to deliver strategic solutions and unique alternatives with passion,” says Apex’s CEO, Tony Song, in a press release .

Boeing has produced the 747 aircraft type since 1968.
