    Ethiopian Airlines is operating a weekly flight connecting Chongqing, the largest municipality in Southwest China, with the freight corridors of the world. It operates the B777-200F freighter on the route.

    Located adjacent to Hunan, Hubei, Guizhou, Shaanxi and Sichuan provinces, Chongqing serves as a node of China’s belt and road initiative linking the country to its western neighbours. 

    The route passes through Shanghai - Chongqing - Delhi - Addis Ababa - Lagos - Sao Paulo - Quito - Miami, connecting the main destinations in Asia, Africa, North America and South America.

    Tewolde GebreMariam, group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines said, “We are excited to have launched a freighter service to Chongqing, Southwest China. We are among the veteran carriers that started serving the People's Republic of China back in the early 1970s, longstanding and multi-faceted ties which have translated into a flourishing trade and investment, cultural and bilateral cooperation between Africa and China. Our new cargo service augments the development of China-Africa bilateral trade and expands on China’s already growing 'belt and road' initiative, while supporting our strategic initiatives to expand our global cargo operations.”

    Hungarian hub Budapest Airport (BUD) announced that builders have completed the construction of the structure of the largest building in its dedicated freight terminal, BUD Cargo City.

    The external structure of the larger of two warehouse buildings, which covers 21,600 m2, was completed in only nine months since the project began, and BUD cargo staff, builders and regional partners celebrated with a topping out ceremony.

    Rene Droese, chief property and cargo officer said: “Since record-breaking air cargo volumes and growth in 2018, handled volumes have remained stable at BUD this year, bucking the industry-wide trend for 2019.”

    Work will now continue on the interior of the building which will also include office space.

    “The pre-leasing ratio of BUD Cargo City demonstrates a clear demand for high-quality facilities, and we believe that with all efforts and steps to create an ideal home for air cargo at BUD, we will attract much more cargo from our catchment zone in the future than today,” said Droese.

    BUD Cargo City will also include a dedicated forwarder building measuring 11,200 m2 and a 32,000 m2 concrete apron.

    This will provide additional new parking positions for the simultaneous handling of two Boeing B-747-8F type aircraft, enhancing cargo apron capacities.

    Construction of BUD Cargo City is financed by Budapest Airport, and is set for completion in quarter four this year.

    The Port of Le Havre (HAROPA-Le Havre) is teaming up with the French Development Agency (AFD) to help ports in developing countries.

    The new partnership is aimed at tapping into HAROPA-Le Havre’s experience, know-how and expertise as France’s biggest container handler that is also a major oil port, ro-ro traffic facilitator and cruise port.

    It will build on ongoing cooperation between the port, AFD and the Indonesian Directorate General of Sea Transportation. This project, financed by AFD, is aimed at strengthening the abilities of Indonesian port authorities to improve the efficiency of the management in Indonesian ports.

    This partnership, financed by the AFD, gathers Le Havre’s expertise through six training sessions delivered in Le Havre and Jakarta. The aim is to strengthen the knowledge and skills of Indonesian managers in the management and operation of their respective ports. It brings together representatives of some 30 Indonesian port authorities from the main ports in the huge archipelago.
    The programme started in 2018 and will end in late 2019. Three intensive training and exchange sessions are being organised in Jakarta and three in Le Havre in order to "immerse the participants as close as possible to the leading port for the external trade of France."

    The current training and exchange meeting started today (24th June) in Le Havre and will finish on Friday, 28th June. The next one will run from October 28th to November 9th in Surabaya.

    Topics include port and maritime economy, role and competence of a port in the logistics chain, information systems, performance indicators and environmental sustainability, including modal shift of inland moves.
