EMERY WORLDWIDE LAUNCHES DIRECT AIR CARGO SERVICE FOR RENO AREA

 EMERY WORLDWIDE LAUNCHES DIRECT AIR CARGO SERVICE FOR RENO AREA
 PALO ALTO, Calif., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Emery Worldwide today announced it has begun daily direct air cargo service between Reno Cannon International Airport and Oakland International Airport to speed morning deliveries for industries based in the northern Nevada area.
 According to David I. Beatson, Emery's vice president-sales and marketing, the company is providing direct air freight service to the Reno area with a 6,500-pound capacity Caribou aircraft.
 The regularly scheduled direct daily flights in and out of Reno provide a faster connection to Emery's national sortation hub in Dayton, Ohio, via Oakland. The shuttle flight allows for a quicker arrival in Reno, enabling expedited morning service for many of the companies in the area who rely on early inbound parts deliveries.
 "Materials inbound and outbound from the Reno area are linked into the Emery system through Oakland, with no intermittent stops, thereby giving us an earlier arrival time into Reno as well as a later departure time each day," Beatson said.
 The aircraft arrives in Reno at 9:35 a.m. to accommodate early deliveries throughout the area, and departs each evening at 5:20 p.m.
 Howard Smyth, Emery's Reno terminal manager, said, "We are primarily an inbound market, serving companies in the mining industry who require emergency parts shipments. Their downtime can cost up to $20,000 per hour, so speed and reliability are of the essence."
 Smyth also said Emery serves manufacturers from a variety of industries who maintain warehouses and distribution facilities within the area.
 According to Beatson, since launching the direct service several weeks ago, Emery has already doubled its inbound business to Reno, while outbound business also is expanding as the company broadens its reach as far east as Battle Mountain and as far south as Tonopah.
 In addition to the regular Caribou service, Beatson also said the company can react to any situation by adding larger aircraft as needed.
 "We have the ability to modify our schedules, add additional aircraft or use other airlines to accommodate increased shipments. We will respond to a customer's need on demand. For example, the other day we added another Caribou aircraft to our schedule for one day to handle a 13,000-pound shipment for a customer."
 Emery Worldwide is a $1.3 billion air freight company with 245 terminal and service locations in North America and 88 countries. Emery provides professional transportation services to support the expedited traffic and logistics needs of retailing, manufacturing and industrial customers. The Emery network accepts any size commercial heavy freight shipment.
