Dachser launches North China air freight gateway
29, 2017: Dachser has streamlined air freight processes in the North China region after making their new air freight gateway operational. The Shanghai Pudong Airport Bonded Zone branch expanded from 3,000 to 6,000 sqm.
“The North China gateway demonstrates Dachser’s high quality process management across continents,” explains Yves Larquemin, Managing Director Air & Sea Logistics North China.
Air freight handling is continuously facilitated by applying gateway procedural standards worldwide to increase response time and transparency.
Inbound and outbound cargo for the ten Dachser branches in North China will be routed through the Shanghai Pudong Airport and the Beijing International Airport, depending on their geographical proximity, specific requirements of the goods and current market situation.
“Consolidating cargo via the gateway instead of handling it individually at local airports will harmonise processes and extend service capabilities,” said David Wang, Air Freight Gateway manager North China.
All single steps like capacity planning, flight schedule updates or pre-alerts are synchronised throughout the company’s global network. Having gateway operations at two airports also increases the flexibility to move cargo by truck.
