Delhi Airport chosen as cargo transshipment centre by China

Delhi Airport has been chosen as the cargo transshipment centre by China. With this development, Chinese cargo to the Central Asian countries is now being routed through Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) with new Transshipment Excellence Centre (TEC).

According to Delhi airport officials, An Air Asia X (D7) freighter, carrying garment and accessories , brought the consignment from Beijing to Delhi for onward delivery to Ukraine in the last week of 2019. This was the first instance of international-to-international movement of China’s cargo via Delhi Airport. With this, a new gateway has been created for the movement of international transshipment cargo connecting China to Ukraine through Delhi Airport.

According Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, CEO-DIAL said, “Delhi has emerged as a cargo hub for businesses in North India and neighbouring countries. This new movement of international transhipment cargo connecting China to Ukraine via Delhi Airport will give a significant impetus to the air cargo and regional logistics sectors.”
