After finishing a project in which they have been working since April this year, was held the celebration of the opening flight Frankfurt, Germany – Greenville – Spartanburg, - USA – Queretaro, Mexico from Senator, leading suppliers in aerial cargo industry of medium and large companies.

Once again, Senator, quality company whose philosophy is first-class global logistics, is betting on Mexico, supporting the growth of Queretaro, said in his welcoming worlds Luis Felipe Rivas Villanueva, general director of Terminal Logistics, “we are proud that Senator has trusted us to open its operations, together we face the growing demand, satisfying increasingly better the demands of customers in aerial cargo services, providing better shipment options achieving optimizing costs and offering quicker and safer services, we are consolidating the fact of making Queretaro Airports a world-class referent by being considered as privileged platform for rendering intermodal services.”

An annual direct investment of more than 45 million dollars is expected which will provide an economic revenue of 35 million dollars that will benefit times and goods circulation costs from the different industrial sectors, contributing thus to the State’s development.

In interview for Mexico Industry, Alfonso Caballero, general director of Senator Mexico, said that “we have been working in this project since April this year, performing tests, approaching companies from the sector, and today we are celebrating the opening flight with all our commercial partners.”
 
With a frequency of one flight per week, departing from Germany each Sunday, going through Greenville USA, arriving to Queretaro the same day; this will be the first flight route from Senator arriving to Mexico; however, in Germany the company has a frequency of six flights, which go from Germany to USA and from USA to Mexico, “we are opening a new flight which will be Germany-Johannesburg, and probably in a couple of years we could open a frequency from China to Mexico or Europe depending on the market conditions, since we consider it as a very important country to develop,” said Alfonso Caballero.

The aircraft used is a Boeing 747-400 with a cargo capability of 110 tons and a Surface of 524.9 m2, which allows an overloaded cargo with the possibility of parking more than 30 medium-sized cars and even an airplane.

Finally, Alfonso Caballero underlined that “one of the competitive advantages Senator will be offering the Queretaro market is that they own aircrafts, this provides us the freedom of control over what to upload and what not to upload; as reference I can say that one of the main customers is BMW, with whom we have a relation of more than 20 years providing them attention and services according to their logistics needs; we are mainly focused in the automotive industry due to the response speed we have towards them.”
