We are thrilled to announce that on November 1st, MIC Cargo became the ground handler for Asiana Cargo in Chicago. They have also moved their cargo sales and service operation for Chicago into our building at 837 Patton, Tower C, Suite 202.
The cargo arm of Seoul-based Asiana Airlines, Asiana Cargo operates dedicated 747-400 and 767-300 freighters worldwide. In Chicago, MIC Cargo is slated to handle between 11 – 14 flights of their B747. Below is the departure of the first freighter we handled last week.
Edip Pektas with MIC Cargo welcomed the addition to the MIC family of carriers which includes such well-known brands as Emirates, Air China, Western Global, and Ethiopian Airlines.
“Asiana Cargo has a tremendous reputation for quality and customer service in the market,” he said. “The addition of their flights to MIC’s roster of carriers is an honor and we are pleased to work closely with them to deliver the excellent import and export services their clients have come to expect from the company.”
Asiana Cargo’s import freight will be available for pickup at our 1600 Sherwin Avenue facility in Des Plaines and export freight should be delivered to our 837 Patton Dr. location at O’Hare.
