GEODIS’ Airdirect Mexico service from Asia takes off

Comment on this article

Global Supply Chain provider GEODIS has launched its full cargo service from Hong Kong to Guadalajara, Mexico.

The new weekly service has a 22-hour real-time transit to the Mexican hub.

Operated by a chartered B747-400ERF and MD-11 F aircraft, AirDirect Mexico represents a completely new, nonstop service in the market, providing GEODIS’ customers with secured capacity, in addition to GEODIS’ other air cargo services, AirFast, AirFlex and AirSave.

Commenting on the new service, GEODIS’ Executive Vice President for Freight Forwarding, Eric Martin-Neuville said, “We have been encouraged by the initial bookings that we have received for our inaugural flight and expect these to rise to a threshold volume where a second, and eventually, a third flight per week, will be established.”

GEODIS’ direct flight service between Hong Kong and Mexico is part of a regional, multimodal growth strategy. “AirDirect Mexico follows the recent launch of our Road Network service in South Asia, providing scheduled services with day-definite transit times to all major destinations in the region,” explained Onno Boots, GEODIS’ Regional President and CEO for Asia Pacific. “As part of this growth strategy, Hong Kong is GEODIS’ hub for China and Southeast Asia originated cargoes to Mexico, Latin America, USA and Europe.”

Clients can now enjoy access to premier wide-body aircraft cargo capacity means, better lead times and a reliable supply chain for dangerous goods, lithium batteries, and general cargo. This new service will ensure just-in-time service and space commitment through an Own Controlled Network (OCN), allowing GEODIS’ customers to meet and exceed their consumers’ expectations.
