Blockchain-based Freightchain launches Thailand cargo routes

By Rachelle Harry

Blockchain-based air cargo network Freightchain has launched routes to Bangkok, Thailand.

The new cargo routes will be served by Thai AirAsia and Thai AirAsia X planes.

Thai AirAsia is a joint venture of Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia and Thailand’s Asia Aviation.

Freightchain was established in January 2019 as a subsidiary company of Teleport, the logistics platform of AirAsia.

Adrian Loretz (pictured), chief operating officer of Teleport, commented: “These newly opened routes will allow businesses to seamlessly connect to or from Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueng, both of which are among the largest airports in Southeast Asia.

“The expansion of these new cargo routes from the Bangkok hub to popular Asean cities was created in response to the great demand for flights to the cities itself. This will allow businesses to also efficiently transfer cargo from the Bangkok hub to other cities.”
