CQR Bangkok confronts the global pandemic by sending out over 600 tons of PPE

In the last few months, they have moved over 120,000 boxes of cargo to Europe, North America and several Asian countries

Trans Air Cargo, Conqueror member in Bangkok, Thailand, has transported more than 120,000 boxes of PPE totalling over 600 tons. The shipments were mostly consigned to UK, several countries in the EU, USA, and some Asian destinations. According to Mr. Keree Chaichanavong, the Managing Director of Trans Air Cargo, “Presently there is a high demand for nitrile gloves, facial masks and medical supplies shipment. Thailand being one of the key rubber producers in the world, we are trying our best to get these items delivered to countries where it is most required.”

They are closely working with the airlines and utilizing the cabin load on the passenger aircrafts in addition to the regular cargo space whenever possible in order to serve the demands of their customers. To this end, they have teamed up with several carriers including AF, KLM, Finnair, Swiss Air, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines.

It has been a difficult time as we are all facing the COVID-19 pandemic situation for the last few months. The available capacity is very limited on almost all the carriers while the rates are skyrocketing and flight schedules are unstable and mostly at short notice. I appreciate the perseverance of our entire team which has managed to get this important job done almost seamlessly.” adds Mr. Chaichanavong. Presently CQR Bangkok is working on another 3 flights with PPE shipments to UK.

Congratulations to Trans Air Cargo and all the best for their future endeavours!

In total, Emons team has been able to move 1100 cbm and approximately 20 million masks, in just three weeks: “COVID19 has affected every one of us, privately and economically and extraordinary times require innovative solutions. In April we successfully operated 7 charter flights- 6 x B767 PAX, including on seat cabin load and one B777-200 PAX including cabin load, but with seats removed. That is why, we are very satisfied with the provided services and we expect it to increase more in the following months.” continues Mr Bayer.
