Teleport, the logistics venture seeded by Capital A Berhad, officially inducted its first Airbus A321 Freighter (A321F) aircraft into its air logistics fleet, which is set to strengthen its position as the market leader in terms of most air cargo volume by tonnage across Southeast Asia, as certified by the World ACD.

The induction of its first A321F aircraft event was graced by the esteemed presence of His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Al-Musta’in Billah.

Teleport growth

Teleport, founded only five years ago in May 2018, saw accelerated growth in the last 24 months that led to its market leadership position in Southeast Asia.

This growth was driven by its three unique advantages; operating the largest air logistics network in Southeast Asia using the surplus belly space of 204 wide-and narrow-body AirAsia passenger aircraft, a focus on full digitisation and data to coordinate end-to-end e-commerce deliveries, and the continuous addition of deep third-party airline relationships.

Destinations in Southeast Asia

Today, over 1,500 businesses ‘Teleport’ their goods to over 80 destinations in Southeast Asia, using one digital Airway Bill, and with a guarantee that ‘it arrives tomorrow’.

Pete Chareonwongsak, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Teleport said: “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 [676] 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. ”
