IAG Cargo, the freight operation of International Airlines Group (IAG), has agreed a major new partnership with the logistics network IFLN.

Under the terms of the agreement, IFLN has become a preferred global forwarder partner to IAG Cargo and will benefit from access to the carrier’s network of more than 350 global destinations. IAG Cargo, meanwhile, is set to benefit from the opportunities for business growth provided by access to IFLN’s freight forwarder network.

David Shepherd, head of commercial at IAG Cargo, commented: “By partnering with IAG Cargo, IFLN will benefit from one of the world’s most extensive global air cargo networks which, when combined with our industry-leading premium product portfolio, will unlock new business opportunities for IFLN and its forwarder members. We welcome this new partnership, which we believe holds the potential to drive significant business growth for IAG Cargo.”

IFLN president Michel Vanlerberghe remarked: “The purpose of this strategic worldwide agreement is to add new business and to benefit from working together while offering quality services to IFLN members. The agreement reflects the desire of both IFLN and IAG Cargo to commit to a successful and valuable long-term collaboration. IFLN counts among its members top-quality air freight forwarders based right around the world – something which may explain the repeated success that the network has enjoyed in similar partnerships with other global carriers.”
