Connecting cargo markets with express reliability
Polar Air Cargo Worldwide provides a critical link in the global logistics chain with the largest fleet of Boeing 747 freighters among U.S. scheduled all-cargo carriers. By connecting major cargo markets with frequent Boeing 747-400 all-cargo service – using the best freighter for long-haul payloads – we deliver high-quality, time-definite scheduled air cargo service, enabling freight forwarders to connect to major markets quickly and dependably.

Market Leading 98% On-Time Commitment
Built on a heritage of highly reliable scheduled air-cargo service, Polar delivers a strong express network through its partnership with DHL Express, which produces performance enhancements for Polar's freight-forwarder customers. In 2007, Polar's parent company, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc., formed a long-term strategic alliance with DHL Express. As the owner of a 49% equity interest in Polar, DHL Express secured access to capacity on Polar’s 747-400 freighter services, combining DHL's leading position in Asia with Polar's unique access on U.S.-Asia routes and industry-leading services and support. This partnership enables Polar to accommodate the high-reliability service required in the express business while continuing to provide convenient schedules and a strong network for some of the world's largest freight forwarders, including Agility, CEVA, Expeditors, Hellmann, Kuehne & Nagel, Nippon Express, Panalpina, Schenker/BAX Global and UTI. These and other shippers rely on Polar to provide modern aircraft, well-trained crews, reliable schedules and on-time service. In fact, we’re so sure of our industry-leading capabilities that our relationship with a few customers includes a commitment to operate flights 98% on time – every time.
