DHL partners SIA D HL Global Forwarding Singapore, the local freight forwarding arm of DHL, has been awarded a prestigious business win with Singapore Airlines (SIA). As the provider of choice for Singapore Airlines, DHL will manage global transportation of all in-flight amenities from Singapore Airlines – mainly through its distribution hubs in China, Germany and Singapore – to all of its network destinations and offices in the world. The contract covers both ocean freight and air freight services. As part of the contract, DHL will also provide all inland transportation services to Singapore Airlines’ China and Germany hubs through its Supply Chain unit. Rail Cargo Transport Corporation of India Limited (TCI) has started a rail cargo express service from Bangalore to Guwahati. Under the service, TCI Freight, the surface transport division of TCI will run a weekly cargo train leaving every Sunday from Bangalore. For the new service, TCI has taken a Cargo Express Train on lease for 3 years which can carry weight upto 468 tonnes. The average transit time for covering the distance will be reduced by 4-6 days; from 10-12 days by road to 5 days by this rail service. The service between Bangalore and Guwahati will cover various states like Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Assam and other North Eastern States. The first and last mile delivery of the cargo will be undertaken by a dedicated fleet through road by TCI. Schiphol Accolade Air France-KLM Cargo has received the Cargo Award in the latest Schiphol Aviation Awards, sponsored by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The airline has been recognised for its ground-breaking initiatives on behalf of Schiphol SmartGate Cargo, its integrated approach to goods inspection and its pioneering role in the implementation of e-freight. Toll acquires SAT Toll Group, the Asian region’s leading provider of integrated logistics services, has announced the acquisition of SAT Albatros (SAT) a Dubai based leading service provider in the sea- air segment. “The acquisition of SAT will further cement Toll’s strategic position in the Middle East and in the Asia to Europe trade lane”, said Toll Group’s Managing Director, Paul Little AO. “With a strong customer base and as the market leader in this service offering, SAT will support our intention to further develop in this market. Building our business with a niche Sea-Air provider gives us further scope to offer our customers the opportunity to match speed to market with a cost- effective service. For customers who want to transport goods quickly but keep costs down, this integrated option can offer significant cost savings over pure air freight.” Hefty volume growth Cargoitalia – Italy’s all-cargo flag-carrier – has turned in another strong result for July-December 2010, concluding its first full year of operation on an upbeat note. | 1
