Saudia Cargo launches Shenzhen flights

Saudia Cargo has extended its network in China with two weekly flights to Shenzhen, a key e-commerce hub.

The services started on Monday 15 March and operate on Mondays and Fridays, connecting Shenzhen with Riyadh.

The flights open up opportunities for Chinese companies, particularly in the e-commerce sector as Shenzhen hosts leading companies including Alibaba, Temu and TikTok.

Teddy Zebitz, CEO of Saudia Cargo, says, “This expansion underscores our commitment to providing reliable and efficient air cargo services to our customers in China. With Shenzhen being a key hub for e-commerce, we see tremendous potential for growth and are dedicated to serving the needs of our customers in this dynamic market.”

Saudia Cargo has partnerships with several major Chinese companies in the e-commerce sector including Cainiao, the logistics arm of Alibaba.

The airline is Cainiao’s largest partner in Saudi Arabia, helping it serve domestic and international e-commerce markets.

On 1 March, Saudia Cargo, Cainiao and Worldwide Flight Services inaugurated their strategic collaboration to boost cross-border e-commerce at Liege Airport, addressing increased logistics demand in the sector. Click here to read the article.
