ATC at Cainiao Smart Logistics Partners Conference
Cainiao Smart Logistics (Cainiao), a part of Alibaba group, held an annual Partners Conference in Hangzhou on October 26. Cainiao is a logistics operator, ensuring delivery of packages with goods sold on Alibaba sites, both on domestic Chinese (Tmall, Taobao, Hema, etc.) and on international markets (Aliexpress, Lazada, etc.). The Forum is aimed at the preparation for the Global Sales Day on November 11 and gathers freight forwarders, express carriers, customs and warehouse operators. Air Mail & Cargo (HK) Limited, a part of ATC Group, was awarded a “2021 Cainiao innovative partner” prize.
Commentary by the СЕО of Air Mail & Cargo (HK) Limited Alexey Maltsev:
We have reached the finish line in preparation for the sales, and held a number of meetings with our partners here, at the conference. This allowed us to make sure we are on the same page and to discuss in detail all the aspects, related to ensuring a smooth export of all shipments following the sales period. As is well known, the volume of shipments transported in the second, third and fourth weeks of November immediately increases several times compared to ordinary weeks. This exerts a strong pressure on all links in the delivery chain and requires a well-coordinated operation of warehouses, track companies, customs and airports. It was a nice bonus to receive an innovation prize, confirming the trust placed in us by our partners. The pandemics of 2020 and 2021 fundamentally reshaped the air freight market, but we managed to develop new approaches and ensure the fastest possible and smooth delivery in these extreme conditions.
