On September 9, 2022, Zongteng Group, a prominent provider of cross-border e-commerce infrastructure services, marked the arrival of its first Boeing 777F freighter at Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport. The inaugural flight from Shenzhen to Riyadh took place on 30th September through a partnership with Central Airlines.

Approximately three to four times every week, the newly-acquitted freighter will depart from Shenzhen to the Middle East and Europe. This is a significant step in Zongteng Group's ongoing worldwide expansion. The B777F can fly for more than 9,200 kilometers and can carry over 102 tons of cargo. As the world's largest and longest-range twin-engine wide-body freighter, this aircraft boasts remarkable range capabilities, outstanding efficiency, and decreased carbon emission.

The Zongteng Group, which focuses on delivering comprehensive logistics solutions to worldwide e-commerce sellers, manufacturers, and trade firms, recorded a turnover of €3.85 billion in 2021. Its subsidiary companies, YunExpress, Elogistic, and Worldtech, provide worldwide e-commerce logistics, fulfillment services, and specialized supply chain solutions. Zongteng Group's end-to-end supply chain infrastructure will be further consolidated with the B777F's air-to-ground connectivity to global cargo collections, line haul transportation, fulfilling warehouses, and distribution centers, with an anticipated yearly cargo capacity of over 25,000 tonnes.

Purchasing this wide-body B777F is crucial to the company's plan to offer premium logistics services to the e-commerce industry. Rather than relying on the same old e-commerce package delivery services, the corporation will be able to exert more control over the whole supply chain by investing in improved intercontinental air freight capabilities on routes from Asia to Europe and America.
