  • The new services consist of scheduled flights and dedicated charters, as well as value-added services including cross-border trucking, warehouse storage and last-mile delivery.

Asia-based Kerry Logistics Network Limited (KLN) has joined forces with Malaysian cargo airline My Jet Xpress Airlines to offer customized airfreight options within Asia by operating a new solution with the Macau International Airport as the transit hub.

The two companies first introduced the airfreight solution in March 2021 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 said in a release.

A transit hub was subsequently established in Macau due to Macau’s proximity to the customer’s distribution center, capability to allow carriage of products with batteries, and the efficiency of its customs clearance process.

From five flights a month, the customized solution now provides seven to eight flights per week and is going to mark its 200th flight soon, KLN said.

With the success of the Macau solution, the global logistics firm said it is expanding its partnership with My Jet Xpress 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.

The new services will be offering scheduled flights and dedicated charters, as well as value-added services including cross-border trucking, warehouse storage and last-mile delivery, to support the rapid surge of the e-commerce market, the spike in freight demand and capacity challenges going into the peak season, it continued.

Mohamed Yunos Bin Mohamed Ishak, chairman of My Jet Xpress, said the cargo airline has invested in new aircraft, two Boeing 737-800F, to complement its existing three Boeing 737-300F and one Boeing 737-400F planes amid the rapid growth of the e-commerce market and consumer demand for greater transparency, speed, and reliability.

Mathieu Biron, managing director for KLN’s global freight forwarding, said the pandemic, while challenging, also gave the firm the impetus to design and launch solutions “to fill the gap between what limited capacity carriers can provide vis-a-vis the demand from customers.”
