Bolloré Logistics Myanmar Ensures Smooth Cargo Flows with Truck-to-Air Solution via Bangkok

June 30th, 2020

To help exporters and importers in Myanmar to manage an un-interrrupted supply chain flow while most international air freight links have been stopped, Bolloré Logistics Myanmar operates regular door-to-door truck-air schedules via Bangkok. Most recent examples include the export operations of masks for a major French textile manufacturer, from Yangon to Nantes, France.

Carrying a cargo lot of 8,850 kg of masks from Yangon, the truck fitted with mobile tracking starts its 9-hour journey - around 413 km, to the Myawaddy - Mae Sot border crossing to Thailand. Thanks to the expertise of the Bolloré Logistics Customs Clearance team, the process at the border was swift and completed on-time.

After another 500 km, of approximately 6 to 9 hours via the Asian Highway No.1 from Mae Sot, the cargo arrived at the Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport. The cargo was then connected to a 'Bolloré Logistics' Airfreight Export Blocked Space Consolidation Program' to France.

Julien Loiret, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Myanmar added, "Our truck-air solution via Bangkok works very well for both import and export, helping us to move air cargo to worldwide destination with a reliable and fast transit-time and connecting Myanmar to the world. At present, we are also offering customized solutions for Pharma and Temperature controlled goods."
