Dimerco expedites oversized cargo shipment

International freight forwarding and transportation specialist Dimerco has implemented a customised logistics solution to expedite the shipment of over-sized, temperature-sensitive cargo from Tokyo in Japan to Xiamen in China, via Taipei, 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 spokesperson explained. “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 onboard.”

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. Therefore, Dimerco was delighted to have surmounted all barriers and achieve successful application for cargo examination and release alongside the aircraft.

Dimerco managed all paperwork for the cargo, which included 40 cases weighing a total 25,500 kg, including the application, with the Dimerco team providing regular, real-time updates to the customer.
