International Air Freight Challenges

Dear Valued Clients,

We hope this notice finds you well. We would like to inform you about some developments in the air freight industry that may impact your shipments.

  1. Flight Cancellations Due to Ongoing Conflict: In light of the ongoing conflict in various regions, several flights have been canceled or delayed. This situation is beyond our control and is affecting air travel around the world. As a result, it has become increasingly challenging to maintain regular schedules for air freight shipments. 
  2. Major Airlines Prioritising Evacuation: Many major airlines have shifted their priorities to focus on evacuating individuals from war-torn countries. This shift in their operations has led to the cancellation of normal commercial flights and a reduction in available cargo space. As a result, airfreight services are being impacted, leading to delays. 
  3. Transshipment to Alternate Airports: To navigate the current challenges, airlines are transshipping cargo to alternate airports, such as Singapore, to ensure the safety and efficiency of their operations. This change in routing may result in unavoidable delays as cargo is re-routed and processed through these alternate hubs.

We understand the importance of timely deliveries, and we are actively working to minimise disruptions as much as possible. However, it’s crucial to recognise that the situation is evolving, and some delays may be unavoidable.

We recommend that you keep a close eye on your tracking information for the most up-to-date status on your shipments. If you have any concerns or require specific information about your air freight shipments, please do not hesitate to contact our team. We are committed to providing support and guidance during these challenging times.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate these unforeseen circumstances. Rest assured, we are doing everything within our power to keep your shipments on track and will keep you informed of any developments.

Thank you for your continued trust and partnership and should you have any questions or concerns, kindly reach out to our dedicated team!
