The airline has extensively trialed routes through Lagos, Nigeria, Nairobi, Kenya, and Johannesburg, South Africa, to create a comprehensive African service from virtually anywhere in the world. This is a new style of service for Africa, designed to give forwarders the kind of peace of mind they require when moving freight to challenging destinations, said Michael Clements, Coyne s Dubai-based Commercial Director, who has 15 years experience of working in Africa. We don t just offer transportation from A to B, we work closely with customers to ensure that they always know where their shipments are. We are confident we can offer a superior service at a competitive price . Coyne s African service will make use of over 30 interline partners and the airline s own 575 through air waybill, which helps to reduce delays when moving freight on more than a single carrier. The service will move consignments from the largest oil and gas equipment, to the smallest, most delicate, shipments. Customer service is often lacking in Africa, said Larry Coyne, CEO, Coyne Airways, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. The market is crying out for more than just point-to-point, and we are confident that we have the experience, network, and contacts on the ground to deliver excellent levels of service. We can provide a tailor-made service with the full flow of automatic updates that Coyne is known for. The African market presents exciting opportunities for both import and export, according to Clements. There is a lot coming out of Africa, and not just pineapples and roses. Beauty products, textiles, and handicrafts are increasingly being exported, and there is oil and gas equipment which needs to be returned. We can mobilise quickly to deal with those jobs.
THI Group Ltd., a freight service provider for Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., which assembles the iPhone 5, said the company has already benefited from the mid-September launch of the new device.
THI said its revenues and profits generated from Hong Kong and Southern China in August have increased about 50 percent and that revenues and profits are expected to maintain momentum until November.
In addition, THI posted a 14.5 percent profit margin for freight services in July, compared with a 15.6 percent profit margin in August.
Chang Kuo-wei, president of EVA Airways Corp., the nation’s second-largest carrier, said earlier this month that shipments in the fourth quarter will definitely outperform third quarter figures thanks to the launch of the iPhone 5.
Shipment volume is expected to carry on through the fourth quarter as Microsoft Corp. is scheduled to launch its touch-friendly Windows 8 operating system at the end of the month, Chang said.
The low-cost carrier can now transport goods to points in Europe, the US, Australasia and the Far East in addition to destinations in the GCC, Middle East, North Africa, Indian Subcontinent, Asia and Central & Eastern Europe. Over the past ten months, flydubai Cargo has forged a number of interline agreements with airlines including Emirates and British Airways and Estonia Air as well as Coyne Airways and Jet Airways. This has helped the division extend its reach beyond flydubai s passenger network. Goods transported include general cargo, perishable items, textiles, electronics, courier, mail, and pharmaceuticals. flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: We set up our cargo division with the aim of making the transport of goods simple, accessible and affordable. Through these interline agreements we have opened new routes and thus new avenues for trade. We are now able to deliver goods from Sudan to Sydney and also provide Nepal s handicraft industry with access to consumers in the US, Europe and Australia. flydubai Cargo s network, combined with its affordable rates and tie up with Calogi, a web based Global Distribution System for the air cargo supply chain, has encouraged businesses across the world to transport their goods with the Dubai carrier. Manufacturers in Serbia, for example, which was previously underserved by direct air and cargo links, export specialist sporting and spare parts to Australia via Dubai, while ship spares are transported from Amsterdam in The Netherlands the GCC and Indian Subcontinent.
Next month, flydubai Cargo will become the first cargo operator to offer direct links between Dubai and Bucharest, Romania, as well as Dubai and Skopje, Macedonia. Flights will start on 1 October 2012 and 18 October 2012 respectively.
flydubai Cargo s on-time record, meanwhile, has prompted exports from the Indian Subcontinent and CIS in the form of perishable goods such as meat, fruits, vegetables and flowers. There has also been demand in Europe for live tropical fish from Port Sudan. With Dubai International Airport being a logistics hub, goods travelling on flydubai flights can be connected in as little as one hour of arrival in Dubai. It takes from eight hours to move shipments carried by interline partners.
The wide range of products being transported by flydubai Cargo shows the demand for a timely, affordable and reliable service. Less than a year into operations, we have grown our network as well as our customer base and aim to continue serving a global audience as our range and operations expand, added Al Ghaith.
