Taiwan-based forwarder and transport specialist, Dimerco expedites a shipment of over-sized, temperature-sensitive cargo from Tokyo (NRT) to Xiamen (XMN), China, via Taipei (TPE) on behalf of a leading imaging technology provider in the global electronics industry.
“Our customer required the cargo to be protected from shock, tilt and temperature change,” a Dimerco spokesperson explains. “Working with our long-term strategic partner airlines as well as local customs, we were able to arrange on flight transit, rather than transfer, in Taipei.”
This includes the application of cargo examination and release on the apron alongside the aircraft, to avoid risk to the sensitive cargo and expedite the process by several days, the company says. “As the cargo is temperature-sensitive, we also arranged for release in the morning, several hours ahead of the release of other cargo on board.”
Dimerco notes that in the current climate, there are particular challenges, including limited space and restricted flight schedules, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. And both truck and staff must pass stringent inspection before entering the airside apron.
Dimerco managed all paperwork for the cargo, which included 40 cases weighing a total of 25,500 kg with Dimerco’s team providing regular, real-time updates to the customer.
