Kerry Logistics Network Limited has joined forces with Malaysian cargo airline My Jet Xpress Airlines to offer customised air freight options within Asia by operating a new solution with the Macau International Airport as the transit hub.
The air freight solution was first introduced in March 2021 by the two companies to support one of KLN’s e-commerce customers who was struggling at the height of the pandemic to obtain freight capacity from Macau into East Malaysia and Indonesia. Kerry Logistics states that the transit hub was subsequently established in Macau for three reasons: its proximity to the customer’s distribution centre, its capability to allow carriage of products with batteries and the efficiency of its customs clearance process.
Kerry Logistics state that due to the success of the Macau solution, My Jet Xpress and KLN are expanding their partnership by introducing more solutions to support the market with scheduled services from Kuala Lumpur and Shenzhen to destinations within Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. By offering scheduled flights and dedicated charters, as well as value-added services including cross-border trucking, warehouse storage and last mile delivery, the new services aim to be able to support the rapid surge of the e-commerce market, the spike in freight demand and capacity challenges going into the peak season.
