Geodis has launched a freighter service from Hong Kong to Guadalajara, Mexico providing a 22-hour real-time transit.
AirDirect Mexico, the weekly service operated by chartered Boeing 747-400ERFs and MD-11Fs provides non-stop services and adds to AirFast, AirFlex and AirSave.
The service is complemented by the Road Network services in Asia and on-carriage solutions in Mexico including daily scheduled intra-Mexican deliveries.
Eric Martin-Neuville, executive vice president for freight forwarding at Geodis says: “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.”
Onno Boots, regional president and CEO Asia Pacific for Geodis says: “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. 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.”
