Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has signed a cooperation framework agreement with Dongguan Municipal People’s Government to further develop intermodal operations.

The airport authority has been leading the development of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) Logistics Park in Dongguan and a new airside intermodal cargo pier at the airport to allow screening, palletisation and acceptance to be completed in Dongguan before being shipped to HKIA airside by ship for flights heading to overseas destinations.

A pilot project is already underway and is said to be operating smoothly.

The agreement signed today (February 16) covers various areas on which the Dongguan Government and AAHK will work together to enhance air cargo services in the Greater Bay Area and to implement customs clearance facilitation initiatives by Dongguan authorities.

And, with the acceptance by the Civil Aviation Department of Hong Kong, all operating procedures were extended from Hong Kong to Dongguan.

The chairman of AAHK, said: “The intermodal cargo transshipment initiative is an innovative model aiming to attain unparalleled efficiency in international cargo handling between GBA and Hong Kong.”

The project is set to be completed in 2025.

Meanwhile, the scale of the pilot scheme will be expanded with more cargo terminal operators, airlines and freight forwarders taking part in providing upstream services, extension of operations to cover import cargoes.

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

We made a huge improvement in global visibility with a global platform—anyone can log into NEOLink and look at a shipment anytime, anywhere in the world. We wanted a freight forwarder with a good technology platform, which could handle the complexities of our business and we found NEOLink!

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
