Dentressangle extends HK consolidations to the UK

Norbert Dentressangle is extending its Hong Kong air cargo consolidations to the UK, following the launch of a similar service to Paris.
With cargo space on flights from China and Hong Kong at a premium in the weeks and months leading up to the Chinese New Year, the freight forwarder will provide three consolidations per week into the UK.
Dentressangle has secured block space agreements with several airlines, offering  a two-day transit time, providing a regular service from Hong Kong to Heathrow and Manchester.
The company also offers a daily trucking service from southern China to its consolidation facility in Hong Kong, along with onward transportation of consignments on arrival into the UK.
Matt Young, commercial manager for the Air & Sea division of Norbert Dentressangle in the UK, said: “Rates for services from Hong Kong can be extremely volatile, not only in the run up to Christmas and Chinese New Year but also around major consumer electronics product launches.
“Our space allocations on flights to the UK protects our customers from this volatility, giving them a guaranteed service at a guaranteed price throughout the year.”
