  • New weekly charters from and to the US, the Netherlands and Taiwan  
  • First “around-the-world” flight of the B747-8F “Inspire.” 
  • Facilitating growth of the semiconductor industry 

Kuehne+Nagel has introduced three new charter connections between the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Starting on October 23, Kuehne+Nagel’s own freighter, the B747-8 “Inspire.”, conducts two additional weekly routings from Atlanta and Chicago to Amsterdam and from there to Taipei.

This flight will serve key industries such as healthcare, perishables and semicon. As one of the world’s leading microchip manufacturers, Taiwan accounts for approximately 20% of the global semiconductor industry. By connecting Taiwan with the Benelux region, Kuehne+Nagel can offer fully owned and controlled capacity for its semiconductor customers while adhering to the strictest quality standards. Earlier this year, Kuehne+Nagel announced their SemiconChain quality standard in response to the market’s increased need for secure and reliable semiconductors transportation.

Yngve Ruud, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel responsible for Air Logistics comments: “Developing and offering logistics solutions for the semiconductor industry is part of our strategic Roadmap 2026. By introducing these three new connections, we can support our customers better and facilitate future growth in the sector.”

From now on, the B747-8 freighter connects the three regions through around-the-world flights as part of its regular schedule.
