Kerry Logistics Network and Malaysian cargo airline My Jet Xpress Airlines have expanded their airfreight operation based at Macau.

The airfreight partnership was first formed in March to support one of the logistic firm’s e-commerce customers that was struggling to obtain freight capacity from Macau into East Malaysia and Indonesia.

Initially, the service operated five-times-per month, but this has now been expanded to eight flights per week.

Looking forward, the two partners plan to introduce scheduled services from Kuala Lumpur and Shenzhen to destinations within Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. 

Mohamed Yunos Bin Mohamed Ishak, chairman of My Jet Xpress, said: “The investment into the new aircraft, two Boeing 737-800F, is about RM40m to complement our existing three Boeing 737-300F and one Boeing 737-400F planes.

“With the strong e-commerce market growing rapidly, we acknowledge the consumer demand for greater transparency, speed, and reliability. We are doing our best to fulfil these demands and be relevant to the e-commerce growth.”

Mathieu Biron, managing director – global freight forwarding of Kerry Logistics Network, added: “The pandemic, while challenging, also gave us an impetus to demonstrate to our customers that we are an agile, flexible, and resilient organisation. We designed and launched solutions that enabled us to fill the gap between what limited capacity carriers can provide vis-a-vis the demand from customers.”
