Delta and Aeromexico sign cargo agreement for US – Mexico services

Delta Cargo and Grupo Aeromexico Cargo have signed a cargo joint cooperation agreement to improve cargo operations between the US and Mexico.

The agreement will allow customers to work with either carrier to transport cargo across a broad network of flights and joint trucking operations, and developments are underway to integrate technologies and create a seamless experience to customers.

Aeromexico and Delta have co-located warehouses in Mexico, Boston, New York JFK, Miami, San Francisco and Chicago, with Orlando and Detroit opening in the summer, and the two companies will be able to implement joint sales and marketing initiatives in both countries.

Delta Cargo president and senior vice president – airport customer service, Gareth Joyce says: “By working together on the cargo side we can really provide a seamless logistics experience in the U.S. and Mexico. This enables us to bring faster, more reliable and flexible solutions to our customers in the U.S., Mexico, and beyond those borders globally.”

Aeromexico Cargo chief executive officer, Rafael Figueroa says: “Aeromexico and Delta as partners have the largest, most comprehensive and expanding air cargo network in the U.S.-Mexico market. Now by delivering outstanding quality service and innovative commercial and logistics solutions, we will definitely bring extensive value to the industry and to our customers.”

Delta and Aeromexico transport various goods across the border, with turbine parts, medical equipment, automotive, perishables and aircraft parts among key products shipped from the US to Mexico, and tequila, medical equipment and aircraft/auto parts going the other direction.

Delta will provide services in the US through its connecting hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, Salt Lake City and Seattle; and Aeromexico will provide access to Mexico via Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara.
