AirAsia, Teleport, Tripple I sign logistics MoU

KUALA LUMPUR, AirAsia Group Bhd, together with Teleport Everywhere Pte Ltd and Tripple I Logistics PLC, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to integrate cargo capacity.

AirAsia Thailand executive chairman Tassapon Bijleveld said the collaboration signifies its continued commitment to what has been built in Thailand by strengthening its partnership with its wholly-owned subsidiary logistics platform, Teleport.

We have trusted Triple I Logistics for almost a decade. The collaboration with Teleport will help create more opportunities for customers, especially regional freight forwarders and small medium enterprises (SMEs), to take full advantage of our belly space and our unrivalled network, he said in a statement today.

Teleport chief executive officer Pete Chareonwongsak said the company has the widest and strongest network in Asia, covering 35 of the region’s top 50 cities.

With our infrastructure, we intend to open this to both individuals and companies, enabling them to transport anything they want quickly and painlessly. It’s with this shared vision, our technology and the combination of Triple i’s local experience that we will ultimately make magic happen in Thailand, he said.

He added that Teleport is on a mission to move goods and e-commerce seamlessly throughout Southeast Asia, taking full advantage of AirAsia’s network of more than 100 cities and 10,000 weekly flights across Asia Pacific.

The integration of AirAsia Thailand and AirAsia X Thailand belly space completes Teleport’s first milestone to bring all AirAsia group airlines together as one, he said.
