Nippon Express Launches "NEX-SPEED Super-Fast! Atlanta" High-speed Consolidated Air Cargo Service to U.S. Southeast
TOKYO, Nov. 2, 2020 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ --

On Tuesday, October 13, Nippon Express Co., Ltd. launched its "NEX-SPEED 
Super-Fast! Atlanta" high-speed consolidated service for air cargo being 
shipped out of Haneda Airport in Japan to the southeastern U.S. via Atlanta 


"NEX-SPEED Super-Fast! Atlanta" achieves the fastest shipping time available by 
loading cargo conveyed to Haneda Airport in the morning onto a direct flight 
bound for Atlanta that same day; once the cargo arrives at Atlanta Airport, the 
Atlanta Branch of Nippon Express USA, Inc., promptly takes receipt of the cargo 
from the airline's terminal.

Nippon Express is the only forwarder with a work facility handling both 
domestic and international cargo inside Haneda Airport, allowing it to sort 
cargo arriving on domestic flights within the airport and then load the cargo 
aboard international flights. The company has its own facility (CFS) in close 
proximity to Atlanta Airport, and this, combined with the (optional) emergency 
delivery service offered by the Atlanta Branch, enables same-day delivery. With 
operations at both the departure and arrival points being handled in-house, 
lead time is about a day and a half less than that of Nippon Express' 
conventional services.


- Same-day delivery area for Nippon Express' emergency delivery service
Cargo arriving at Atlanta Airport can be delivered that same day within a 
radius of approximately 300 km from Atlanta, an area that covers most of 
Georgia and Alabama as well as portions of other neighboring states.


Nippon Express will be continuing to develop services that meet emergency 
transport needs and endeavoring to optimize customers' supply chains.
