The way the cargo division works makes Kao proud. “The entire Cargo team at China Airlines headquarters and branch offices around the world is about 800 people, just 8% of our total workforce. Read More » This dream team showed what they can do by aggressively expanding our freight revenue and dispatching more than a hundred charter flights in a month. They achieved unprecedented charter rates and revenue as well. More than a thousand pilots flying around the clock as well as the full support of maintenance, ground handling, and other logistics units made it possible for China Airlines to exceed TWD100 billion ($3.6 billion) in revenue so far in the pandemic. Their efforts helped China Airlines improve its ranking in global freight.”

The most visible asset of China Airlines Cargo is its dedicated freighters. “China Airlines operates the largest 747-400F freighter fleet in the world. The surge in air cargo demand during COVID-19 has meant our 18 747-400F freighters are kept busy. During the pandemic, we also began taking delivery of 777F freighters that were on order. Our fleet of 21 freighters, eighteen 747-400Fs and three 777Fs, was fully utilized in 2021. We increased our scheduled freighter services by 23% and flew additional services in response to market demand, operating up to 130 flights each week,” Hsieh said.

Freighters are used mainly on higher value routes to the U.S., such as Chicago or Los Angeles. “China Airlines continues to optimize network performance, to develop promising markets, and to focus on the development of special cargo such as e-commerce, precision machinery, and cold-chain products to boost profits,” Hsieh said.

“In addition to bidding for the vaccine transport market and to transporting vaccines purchased by Taiwan on a number of occasions, we also have generated new revenue sources by carrying out vaccine transshipment missions to other countries in Asia and Oceania. Our cold chain logistics business has grown several-fold and we will continue to monitor the latest developments in the global cargo market” Hsieh said. “To date, we have transported 80 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine. The rapid growth of China Airlines cold chain transportation business has caused a significant increase in the use of temperature-controlled containers as well. We operated 2.5 times more temperature-controlled containers in 2021 compared to 2018,” said Kao.

The 747-400F freighter ability to load or unload large cargo is used to transport special cargo. The company used a bidding system for hold space to increase unit revenues by prioritizing high-value sources such as urgent and project cargo.

For close to two years, CAL has been assigning passenger aircraft to cargo missions. “Flights were considered worthwhile if revenues from the belly hold covered variable costs such as fuel, airport fees and labor. Strong global demand for cargo services (e.g. medical supplies and aid, and merchandise related to the stay-at-home economy) meant that, on average, passenger aircraft flew over 1,000 cargo only services each month. The U.S. West Coast saw particularly strong demand for cargo. China Airlines was operating up to six or seven flights to Los Angeles per day during the peak season,” Hsieh said. Some flights, mostly to the U.S. West Coast, where the demand was the highest, also were carrying cargo in passenger cabins.

I applied for a business loan and surgery loan for my daughter’s health early February, condition I was told I would be considered and contacted but never got to hear from any of the lenders. A credit repair agent said I would have to be on a 700+ score to be considered but never told how to get my score up to that in no long time. I had a 539 Score. I bumped into a credit review forum where PENTIUM TECHS was mentioned by many people who claimed he fixed their credit. I contacted the hacker out of curiosity and desperation on his email pentiumtechs@qualityservice.com we got talking and he gave me a week to delete collections and 2 charge offs. He also got my credit up to 765. I got the surgery loan and was contacted as regards the business loans I applied for. All thanks to PENTIUM TECHS

My family and I ended up homeless 2 years ago after I lost my job. I am a disabled combat veteran trying to buy a home. My family and I wanted to purchase a home but my poor credit score ruined every effort made to actualize that goal and it was a nightmare. I decided to look for help online and luckily for me, I ran into PENTIUM TECHS (PENTIUMTECHS@QUALITYSERVICE.COM), they were highly recommended for a quick and permanent credit repair so I hired them immediately. After 6 days, they raised my score to a whooping 791 and deleted all the negative items affecting my report. Thereafter, we got the house and we had a happily ever after kind of family story.

I missed out on most of my payments. I could not make the payments due to getting let go from my job. Single mother and had to file for temporary assistance for my son and I just so we could survive at that moment. I have heard of many successful removal stories and I really felt I had undergone hardship. I explained this in my goodwill letter to them as well as on the phone with someone from the CEO office. I ended up securing a new job and made all the payments, but the negatives still appear on my credit and my score is still very low. We had a for sale sign in front of our house due to the landlord selling property and I couldn't get a loan due to my low credit score . I was introduced to Rootkits Credit Specialist by a neighbor who took pity on me. They helped me erase the negative Items and raised my score to 771 from the initial 587. I live in a new apartment now all thanks to them and my good ex neighbor. I'm recommending their services as promised, they're available on Mobile: 815 524 8116 or Email: rootkitscreditspecialist@gmail.com.
