Geodis is continuing its scheduled own controlled network (OCN) airfreight service linking Europe and the USA throughout 2021.
The current service provides three full rotations each week. With transatlantic airfreight capacity continuing to be tight and forecasted to remain that way into next year, Geodis is contracting freighters to operate within its OCN as part of its global AirDirect service offering.
The 2021 schedule is confirmed between Amsterdam Schiphol and Chicago O’Hare with three departures and three return flights a week.
Eric Martin-Neuville, executive vice president, freight forwarding at Geodis, said: “Our customers on both sides of the Atlantic have been suffering from a severe shortage of regular, guaranteed air freight options. We foresee this situation remaining for some time and so have committed resources to provide stability and assure the continuity of our service through the full year of 2021.”
