Extensive and speedy air and road network services
Because air freight spends only 10% of its journey in flight; Cargolux offers an integrated network of warehouses, road feeder services and information systems to cater for the other 90%. With Cargolux servicing over 70 destinations across the globe, our extensive road feeder network ensures that air freight arrives at its ultimate destination quickly, efficiently and at competitive rates.
