Delta Cargo and the cargo division of its joint venture partner, Air France/KLM, have co-located cargo warehouse facilities in Seattle.

The move is designed to allow more space for cargo capacity and make shipping easier and more convenient for the airlines’ shared customers.

Delta Cargo’s Seattle warehouse has hosted Virgin Atlantic since March 26, 2017. In the last year, this single roof partnership has handled over 1.2m pounds of cargo with a daily B787 flight. This initiative is beneficial not only for the increased cargo tonnage capacity, but also in helping deliver a co-ordinated cargo operation among Delta’s partners and to add employment opportunities at the station.

Other stations to which Delta has expanded this warehousing initiative include Atlanta (with Air France/KLM and Virgin Atlantic); Boston (with Air France, Virgin Atlantic and Alitalia); Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and Detroit (seasonally with KLM); and New York’s John F. Kennedy International, Washington-Dulles, Miami and Orlando (with Virgin Atlantic).

The airline expects monthly volumes of more than 400,000 pounds of highly valuable cargo to be flown on Delta and the newly launched Air France flights between Seattle and Paris.
