Dimerco is an international freight forwarding and transportation specialist. The move comes via Taipei, a leading imaging technology provider in the global electronics industry.
'Our customer required the cargo to be protected from shock, tilt and temperature change,' the company said.
'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 and 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. 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.'
'In the current climate, there are particular challenges, including limited space and restricted flight schedules, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic; also both truck and staff must pass stringent inspection before entering the airside apron,' the company stated.
Dimerco handled all of the paperwork for the cargo. The cargo includes 40 cases weighing a total 25,500 kilogrammes, while the Dimerco team provides real-time updates to the customer.
