Zongteng Group chooses WFS for Boeing 777F freighter flights as e-Commerce cargo boosts

Jan 27, 2023

Zongteng Group is a leading provider of cross-border e-commerce services, including fulfillment and customized supply chain solutions provided by its sub-brands, YunExpress, Elogistic, and Worldtech, and reported a turnover in 2021 of €3.85 billion. The new Shenzhen-Paris freighter route is the company’s latest initiative to realize the immense potential of Sino-European cross-border trade.

The new 777F service will provide 15,000 tonnes of annual cargo capacity, providing Zongteng Group customers with highly reliable e-commerce logistics services and optimized lead times. In Q3 2023, the Group expects to add a second Boeing 777F to increase its Shenzhen-Paris CDG operations to 6-8 flights per week and lift its available capacity to a projected 28,000 tonnes per annum.

WFS has been appointed to provide ramp and cargo handling services for the cargo flights at Paris CDG, which are operated by Zongteng Group in collaboration with Central Airlines.

“WFS is proud to be using its ramp and cargo handling expertise at Paris CDG to support the launch and growth ambitions of Zongteng Group’s new 777 freighter services. The strong growth in demand for cross-border e-commerce capacity from China to Europe requires more cargo capacity as well as the support of fast and reliable handling on the ground in order to meet customers’ service expectations. We are confident this partnership between Zongteng and WFS will deliver these high service standards,” said Laurent Bernard, VP of Cargo France at WFS.
