Maersk launches air cargo operation in Brazil that will serve different volume profiles

Operated on commercial cargo and passenger flights, seeking to be the solution for users with critical deadlines

Maersk fixed decided to start its air cargo operations in Brazil. Its expansion of the intermodal network, which offers logistics solutions by land, sea and now air, is one of the company's global strategies and positions it again at the forefront of the logistics sector, targeting growth in several markets, reported SgasPotting.

To do this, it took into account the main problems of users who already used the air modality, which they solved and thus, based on these references, be able to guarantee an excellent service in their next operations.

Mauricio Coelho, the company's Air Cargo Manager for the East Coast of South America, indicated that "air cargo will serve Maersk customers who already operate in other modes and for those who only need this solution. Contrary to what some people might think, the service caters for different volume profiles. From smaller shipments to large engines, turbines and cargo, "he said.

"The service complements the group's portfolio of experience with an option mainly focused on those seeking shorter transit times. Operated on commercial cargo and passenger flights, Maersk's air freight will be the solution in situations with critical deadlines, due to the speed inherent to the modal "mentioned Coelho.

It should be noted that, for companies like Maersk to meet demands, the following factors must be taken into account: hiring a single supplier with experience and a wide range of solutions, ability to serve global markets with its own structure, problems with waiting times and delays, changes in planning and demand, delay or loss. in the production process, product launches, transportation of valuable goods with reduced volume and reduction of inventories in transit, to name a few.

According to Coelho, the expectation within the company is for Maersk to position itself as the largest air cargo operator, not only in Brazil but also in countries in the region. In principle, the company must use the capacity of the associated aircraft. There is currently no request from ANAC for Maersk to operate its own cargo planes. The transportation program will include air cargo within the country and on various routes to and from Brazilian airports.
