TAIWAN forwarding major Dimerco beat competition to transport six civil light aircraft from US to China, navigating lockdown port congestion, according a company press release.
The journey for the fixed-wing aircraft occurred from May 10 to June 27 and relied on Dimerco's long-term relationships with a network of carriers.
The operation was coordinated by Dimerco teams in Chicago and Qingdao, while each stage was communicated to the client to support them through the experience of importing light aircraft.
To keep costs down, the China team worked with local customs using manual documentation to identify the most appropriate HS Code, which resulted in reduced import tax for the customer.
"The client was impressed by Dimerco's teamwork and efficiency in obtaining customs clearance which was completed the day after the shipment arrived, and expressed their appreciation via WeChat group right after cargo was released," said Dimerco's Central Service Centre (CSC).
