Dimerco delivers urgent test kits to Taiwan

[ May 27, 2022   //   ]

Dimerco has delivered self-test kits from Hong Kong to Taiwan to help tackled an increase in Covid infections. The forwarder used commercial air freight to transport 165 pallets with a total weight of nearly 50 tons within just four days, despite the required delivery date directly following the Hong Kong Easter holiday. Dimerco also achieved significant savings for its customer by consolidating the cargo into a single flight rather than the usual two to three passenger flights after the airline agreed to prioritize the freight, and it also avoided the express freight charges generally expected for peak time Friday. Dimerco coordinated the customer’s assigned customs clearance and trucking vendors onsite at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport to complete the import procedure and enable seamless onward transportation.
