Cargo Connection Logistics Holding, Inc. Reports Record First Quarter Results

Quarterly Revenues Increase by More Than 14 Percent -- Bottom Line Improves 61 Percent

INWOOD, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 23, 2007 -- Cargo Connection Logistics Holding, Inc. (OTCBB: CRGO) (BERLIN: CD6) (FRANKFURT: CD6) (FRANKFURT: 217026) today reported that its revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2007 increased by 14.1 percent to a new first quarter record of $4,158,826. The Company also reported that its net loss decreased by 61 percent during the quarter compared to the first quarter of last year.

"In the first quarter of 2007 we successfully increased our sales and reduced our overhead," said Jesse Dobrinsky, Chairman and CEO of Cargo Connection Logistics Holding, Inc. "The majority of the first quarter increase in revenue was generated through organic growth. What is of particular interest is that these recent results do not include any revenue which the Company expects to begin receiving through our recently procured contracts with Rexam PLC and AIT Worldwide Logistics. We expect that those contracts will utilize most of the capacity that has been available in our Chicago facility."

According to Dobrinsky, the Company will continue to aggressively seek out new business for all of the Company's facilities, pursue business opportunities in the international arena and continue to seek to develop the business relating to the Rad-Rope™ technology it acquired this past December.

"We are actively seeking to refinance our existing convertible debt," said Dobrinsky. "We hope that a simplified capital structure will facilitate our ability to execute our business strategy."

Complete financial results can be found in the Company's most recent 10-QSB filing.
