Delta Cargo is introducing Equation Critical, a
new service for international shipments.
The premium GPS-enabled
service for the transportation of highly time-sensitive shipments
that must travel on the next available flight, offers GPS tracking
on Delta Cargo's website and moves with the highest priority
across Delta’s global network.
In distinctive pink packaging, the Equation Critical
service does not require pre-booking and can be tendered up to 90
minutes before a flight.
The service caters to customers who are
shipping time-sensitive items, such as legal documents, essential
machinery parts and aircraft on the ground (AOG) components.
Critical shipments come with a service-level guarantee and Delta’s
Cargo Control Center proactively monitors the shipments
throughout the journey.
“Following the successful
launch and roll-out of DASH Critical in the United States, we have
taken that formula to the next level and introduced our new
Equation Critical service for international shipments which have
the highest boarding priority in our network,” said Shawn Cole,
Vice President - Delta Cargo. “With GPS tracking and 100% service
level guarantee, we are introducing a service that ensures
important international shipments are in the right place at the
right time, throughout the shipping process – giving our customers
complete confidence when shipping critical and time-sensitive
shipments across our global network.”
Delta’s Equation Critical service will launch for international
shipments originating in Atlanta, Savannah and London, destined
for Bogota, Colombia; Johannesburg, South Africa; Quito, Ecuador;
and Seoul-Incheon, South Korea. Atlanta, Savannah and London will
also accept import shipments.
Equation Critical is expected to be progressively rolled out
other international markets across Delta’s extensive network,
subject to customer demand and regulatory approvals.
