CV flies the supplies

The global pandemic has left no part of the world untouched, and the importance of community response has been a cornerstone of the battle against the virus. As parts of the world struggled with the outbreak of the Delta variant, Singapore Changi Airport community called on its members to help the relief effort. A long-standing and proud member of the airport’s community, Cargolux did not hesitate to play its part in this solidarity endeavor.

At the initiative of the Changi Airport Group, over 30 community members teamed up to arrange a donation of 1,380 oxygen concentrators to Indonesia. This remarkable endeavor required quite a bit of logistical organization. Procured by Changi Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Changi Airport Group, the medical devices had to be shipped from Los Angeles, where they are manufactured, to Singapore and onward to Jakarta.

True to its community engagement values, Cargolux played its part in this charitable action by providing free transport for the life-saving equipment from Los Angeles to Singapore ahead of its onward journey to Indonesia.

All sectors in the supply chain were represented in each step of this initiatives from retail to handling, from engineering to airport employees across the globe, every component of the global chain played its part. The organization and coordination between stakeholders required special intention and mobilized countless people to ensure the mission was a success.

The incredible collaboration we witnessed between all parties echoes the notion that we are stronger together, a philosophy that has been emphasized during this challenging sanitary situation.”

The global pandemic and its effect on the aviation industry and the supply chain has underlined the importance of air cargo. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Cargolux has played a crucial role in keeping the supply chain moving and delivering essential supplies where they are most needed.

Singapore and Jakarta are key destinations in the Cargolux network, and it is crucial for the company to support communities it operates into.
