With the lowest operating cost per ton-mile in the industry, the new-technology Boeing 747-400 Freighters are the all-cargo transport members of the 747-400 family.
They can carry twice as much cargo, twice as far, as the competitor's leading freighter. Along with earlier versions, 747 Freighters -- nearly 300 in all -- carry half the freighter air cargo in the world.
With the enhanced 747-400ER Freighter, the airplane offers an even more unbeatable combination of payload, range and speed.
The newest member of the family, the 747-400 Boeing Converted Freighter, gives air cargo companies an economical means to add cargo lift by converting 747-400 passenger or combi airplanes to freighters.
Seventeen customers have ordered a total of 124 747-400 Freighters, including 32 747-400ER Freighters. Cargolux Airlines was the first to put the 747-400 Freighter into service in November 1993.
More than 100 747-400 Freighters have been delivered, including a record 18 in 2002.
