Flexport and Western Global Announce Three-Year Partnership

Western Global Airlines is pleased to announce that it has entered into a three-year agreement with Flexport to provide dedicated 747-400 freighter scheduled service between Hong Kong and Los Angeles beginning on April 5.

Western Global’s CEO and Founder, Jim Neff stated: “Our partnership with Flexport is a significant milestone because it will enable our two companies to join forces to revolutionize the traditional air cargo platform for the 21st century. Both Flexport and WGA were founded in 2013, and both have taken customer-focused approaches based on new technology. They have grown rapidly to become leaders and innovators in their respective business segments, and as such are natural partners in changing the air freight dynamic together. I believe that WGA’s responsive and robust service will allow Flexport to strongly serve their customer base both in Asia and the US.”

The initial service starting in April will be roundtrip twice per week between Hong Kong and Los Angeles growing to three times per week in September.  Ryan Petersen, CEO of Flexport states: “At Flexport, we are always striving to improve service to our clients. Our partnership with Western Global helps us achieve this goal, because we will have consistent and reliable air freight capacity that our clients can count on.”

Neel Jones Shah, Flexport’s SVP and Global Head of Air Freight: “This new partnership allows Flexport to offer predicable, affordable and a custom-tailored service to our customers with guaranteed capacity through seamless, dedicated scheduled service in the important Hong Kong to US markets.”
