Teleport, the digital cargo and logistics platform of AirAsia, and Zeal Global Services Pte Ltd have announced a new partnership to establish a local subsidiary in India.
India is a key market for Teleport’s expansion as potentially the world’s fastest growing e-commerce market, and is strategically located at the centre of the trans-Indian Ocean routes that connect European and Asean markets.
The partnership will help facilitate and strengthen market accessibility for retail, e-commerce and international freight companies looking to connect India to consumers in Asean and beyond. In addition, this partnership will also help support the cargo growth of AirAsia India as the airline pursues international expansion later this year.
With this new partnership, Teleport customers will enjoy access to direct flights from eight of India’s 10 busiest airports into AirAsia’s network of more than 150 destinations and 10,000 weekly flights across Asia Pacific, as well as 164 markets in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia via its interline partners.
Teleport CEO Pete Chareonwongsak said, “Teleport is on an accelerated growth path enabled by technology and we are excited to partner with Zeal Global Services, a GSA leader that’s led by a hungry management team with a wealth of local market knowledge. Together with our wide network covering half of Asia’s top 162 cities, we are confident and ready to serve both individuals and companies in India to enable them to transport anything they want quickly and seamlessly across the region.”
Speaking on the partnership, Zeal Global Director Nipun Anand said, “We are delighted to associate with Teleport, the cargo and logistics platform for the AirAsia Group, which embraces technology as it aims at faster, more seamless movement of goods. This partnership will certainly enable us to provide enhanced service competency to our clients. The excellent network of AirAsia, backed by Teleport’s strong digital platform, will enable us to do deeper market penetration in this region. We look forward to working closely with Teleport for the cargo capacity optimisation to facilitate trade, connecting with more opportunities and for e-commerce fulfillment in key consumer markets.”
