In the fast-paced world of airfreight, staying ahead of the curve sometimes means drawing the lines to blaze a new frontier. We at Swiss WorldCargo, the airfreight division of Swiss International Air Lines Ltd., are doing just that with a modular approach to managing and transporting air cargo that provides flexibility, adaptability, and customisation.

Age-old challenges, meet new approach

The pandemic and its aftermath, coupled with widespread changes to environmental policy, a dramatic rise in geopolitical tension, and wild fluctuations in fuel prices, add to the challenges common to the air cargo industry, which include:

  • Sustainability: There is growing pressure on the air cargo industry to reduce its environmental impact. This includes efforts to reduce emissions, improve fuel efficiency, and implement more sustainable practices.
  • Digital Transformation: The industry is grappling with the need for digital transformation to improve efficiency and customer service. This includes everything from tracking and tracing shipments to automating processes and leveraging big data for decision-making.

Swiss WorldCargo's new offer structure is strategically designed to effectively counteract these obstacles by focusing on the different needs of specific commodities. This multifaceted approach allows Swiss WorldCargo to provide customers with a flexible and scalable shipping solution that can adapt to a business' growing and ever-changing needs.
