More routes, more connections, more capacity.
Alaska Air Cargo has dramatically increased our route network, especially with more flights serving California. Our increased California flight schedule extends options all the way around the state and opens our coast-to-coast network even further. There are, for example, multiple ways, creatively using published schedules and multiple California airports, to get freight quickly to the East Coast or Hawaii.
In California, we ship to and from:
Enhanced facilities in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
LAX: A couple of years ago, we moved into a larger facility, with new X-ray machines and coolers, and allows for more freight volumes. Our partner/vendor Mercury Air Cargo has handled our operation for many years and is extraordinarily capable, with a dedicated Alaska Air Cargo staff.
SFO: We’ve just moved into our brand new SFO facilities at the North Access Road and are now working with Mercury Air Cargo. We have dedicated dock doors, coolers and our own dedicated vendor staff. All contribute to quicker, smoother service.
Self-service pickup allows for more efficient tendering and recovery at both LAX and SFO.
With our new self-pickup at both LAX and SFO, we can provide more convenient and often faster service. Because our customers can pick up freight via self-service, it has the effect of reduced wait time in lines for both tendering and pickup.
