Malaysia-based logistics firm Teleport has this week introduced the Airbus A321 Freighter into its fleet.
Teleport’s A321F is a narrow-body cargo aircraft with 24 containerized positions on both the main and lower deck.
This allows it to carry a maximum payload of 27 tons (27,000 kg) of various cargo, including e-commerce parcels, express/small parcels, large-volume cargo, and dangerous goods.
The second and third A321Fs are due to be delivered in Q4 2023 and Q1 2024, respectively to help assist with Malaysia‘s ever-growing cargo market.
These aircraft will have the flexibility to be based out of Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Jakarta, or Manila, leveraging Teleport’s multi-hub operating model.
A Big Deal for Malaysia’s Teleport…
Pete Chareonwongsak, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Teleport, said the following in this announcement for Malaysia:
“Today marks the arrival of the number one air logistics company in Southeast Asia.”
“From a scrappy startup with humble beginnings in Malaysia, each day , Teleporters across seven countries work tirelessly to deliver more goods by air than anyone else in Southeast Asia.”
“We saw our growth accelerate in the past 24 months, where we have scaled a company that is profitable and on track to generate US$200M in annual revenues – it is fitting to celebrate these milestones on the same day as the arrival of the first of three A321Fs this year.”
“The A321Fs are key for us to continue and strengthen our dominant position in Southeast Asia, as it will allow us to carry more, do more, and cover more – by adding skidded capacity into our extensive air cargo network and having more control and flexibility to accommodate our customers’ diverse needs.”
“And with the first A321F based out of Kuala Lumpur, it is the perfect hub as its 5-hour flight range gives it access to over 80 destinations across Southeast Asia and 80 more key cities in the Asia Pacific.”
Overall, this is strong news for the company and will no doubt continue to grow in intensity on the cargo operations front.
