GEODIS adds multiple flights to its AirDirect network in Asia-Pacific

  • New weekly services from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Shanghai (PVG) and Sydney (SYD)
  • Second weekly rotation: KUL – Hong Kong (HKG) – Chennai (MAA) – KUL added
  • All schedules serviced by long-term chartered aircraft
  • Total of 320 tons in increased capacity
  • Kuala Lumpur established as multi-modal hub integrating with GEODIS Road Network, linking Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore


In response to surging demand for air cargo capacity in the region, GEODIS, a global leading transport and logistics services provider, has significantly expanded its AirDirect own operated network with three more intra-Asia Pacific (APAC) flight routes. With a newly established hub in Kuala Lumpur, the logistics operator will dovetail the air services with its Road Network linking destinations throughout Southeast Asia. The multi-modal expansion builds on its strong momentum in creating diverse transportation options for customizing supply chain solutions for its customers.

The expanded flight network, which bridges Hong Kong, Chennai, Sydney, and Shanghai to Kuala Lumpur, can carry an additional 320 tons of cargo weekly. This will significantly ease the strain on the supply chains, which saw load factors and yields reach historic highs in 2021 when cargo capacity struggled to meet the surge in e-commerce transactions. With demand for airfreight forecast to increase, particularly amidst ongoing delays and flight cancellations across Southeast Asia following the impact of the Omicron variant, GEODIS believes its extended AirDirect schedules will become a pivotal component in ensuring seamless, reliable, and efficient air transport services in the region.
