Cross-Border Trucking Services Between China and Southeast Asia

Regular schedules, reliable delivery.

For shipments between China and Southeast Asia, your company may be losing time (with ocean freight) or losing money (with air freight). As a cross-border road transport company, Dimerco moves freight between Shanghai and Singapore (and key markets in between) within 8 days, and at 56% savings over air freight. Moreover, we offer this cross-border trucking service between Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, providing a predictable alternative to uncertain air and sea freight capacity in the region.

Asia cross-border road freight solution supports mobile phone production during pandemic

Due to COVID-19-related lockdowns and flight cancellations, air freight capacity out of Penang, Malaysia was severely limited starting from Q3 2020. During this time, a global distributor of semiconductor products was challenged to increase component shipments to support mobile phone production in China.

To support this company, Dimerco leveraged its relationship with Cathay Pacific to secure some direct air service from Penang, but it was insufficient for the freight volumes. Dimerco proposed its cross-border road transport solution to move goods from Penang to Singapore, with connecting air service to Hong Kong.

For a 4-month period of peak demand, Dimerco coordinated 83 truckload shipments of sensitive semiconductor products to help this company meet its delivery promise to an important customer.
