AUSTRALIA's integrated logistics provider Wiseway that operates a nationwide network of warehouses and vehicles, will extend its partnership Xiamen Airlines this month.
Wiseway's national bonded interstate trucking service network, which operates daily between all major Australian capital cities, will be used to extend the services currently provided by Xiamen Airlines.
Through leveraging Wiseway's 100+ truck fleet, the airline will extend its existing international cargo services from Fuzhou/Hangzhou/Xiamen to cover Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, reported Sydney's Transport & Logistics News.
Wiseway has acted as a cargo sales agent for China's sixth largest carrier since Xiamen Airlines commenced flights to Australia in July 2016. The airline currently operates seven flights weekly from Fuzhou and Xiamen to Sydney, plus five flights per week to Melbourne originating from Fuzhou, Hangzhou and Xiamen.
Said Wiseway CEO Roger Tong: 'The partnership seeks to increase our share of the expanding Australian import air cargo market, driven by the rapid growth in e-commerce.'
Furthermore, Wiseway has recently updated its road transportation online reservation platform interface to include track and trace capability which will further improve the company's efficiency as well as efficiency for customers and airline partners.
