RedCargo partners GD Express to tap e-commerce demand in Asia Pacific


REDCARGO Logistics, the cargo and logistics platform of AirAsia, has entered into a strategic partnership with Malaysian express delivery provider, GD Express (GDEX).

The partnership provides GDEX customers with access to AirAsia's network of 5,000 weekly flights across Asia Pacific.

RedCargo Logistics will be provided with opportunities to explore last-mile capabilities "in order to build a loyal customer base," said a company statement, reported London's Air Cargo News.

RedCargo Logistics chief executive Pete Chareonwongsak said: "E-commerce growth in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. We will continue to align with regional partners that believe in growing and developing alongside us.

"As a home-grown Malaysian brand, GDEX recognises the true value of e-commerce fulfilment in the region and the role RedCargo Logistics plays in the value chain."

GDEX chief executive Teong Teck Lean added: "Our ambition is to become one of the foremost regional express companies in Asean. To do that, we believe it is crucial to choose the best partners in the market who can help us achieve this goal.

"We are therefore proud to have the opportunity to work alongside RedCargo Logistics, with its singular focus on customer satisfaction and flexibility, to improve our connectivity."
