As China-US trade tensions continue to rise, Taiwan-based transportation and freight forwarding specialist Dimerco has supported its customer―a world leader in mechanical steel for renewable energy solutions―in establishing a new manufacturing base in Malaysia, enabling their customer to import equipment, raw materials and produce finished goods for export directly to the United States.

Dimerco planned and managed the entire 6-day logistics process to ship the first 122 steel coils weighing over 3,000 metric tons from port to warehouse, including storage, sample cutting, re-wrapping and packing, as well as handling customs clearance and distribution to the consignee. Since the first shipment in March this year, Dimerco has now shipped approaching 10,000 metric tons of steel coils, with more scheduled. Based on this successful project, Dimerco secured a further contract with this customer for a different product in a second newly built factory last month, in May 2019.

According to a spokesperson from Dimerco, the company previously shipped heavy production equipment for the customer from Suzhou in China to Malaysia. And, in the light of the China-US tariff stand-off, the customer has decided to not only build a new factory in Malaysia but also ship raw material from South Korea/Taiwan to Malaysia via ocean freight, with Dimerco handling all operations from the destination port. “Our experience and deep market knowledge in this region enabled us to provide a comprehensive and seamless service to our customer who is operating in an unfamiliar market to them,” the spokesperson said. “We transferred the cargo to a warehouse in the Free Zone Authority and worked through the night to achieve a rapid transit time, as well as liaising with trusted partners on utilizing specialist equipment required to handle the heavy freight and dispatching local transportation with low-bed trailers.”

In order to achieve smooth customs clearance, Dimerco’s dedicated team also arranged sample cutting for SIRIM (Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia) Inspection, arranging for a subcontractor to slight 3 baby coils from the 25 tons mother coil and ensuring each coil was labelled accurately on arrival at port, before inspection.

“This project has allowed us to demonstrate our breadth of services and our commitment to teamwork,” Dimerco’s spokesperson concluded. “We were able to advise our customer on the specific requirements of coil import and transfer in Malaysia, particularly with regards to warehousing, inspection and customs clearance. In addition, we provided onsite monitoring and 24 hour live updates to our customers, as well as delivering basic training on the FZA regulations and SIRIM inspection. Dimerco is delighted that our expert heavy freight handling services have been recognized with a further contract in Malaysia from our valued customer.”

Global logistics specialist Dimerco successfully streamlined the total freight transportation process for the delivery of components crucial to the completion of the aviation fuel pipeline – the initial stage in the construction of the new Beijing Daxing Int’l Airport.

Dimerco shipped the vital 33 tons of valves for the pipeline from Milan, Italy to Zhengzhou, China by cross-border train freight, saving the customer nearly three weeks transit time compared to ocean shipments previously also handled by Dimerco. Additionally, the parts were delivered on time to three destinations along the route of the pipeline during a major national holiday in China.

On average, train freight is 70% cheaper than air freight, up to 20 days faster than ocean freight and can be GPS tracked more effectively. Utilizing its dedicated Dimerco Value Plus System® and the latest module, ‘eRMS – Railway Freight Management System’, specifically designed to manage cross-border train freight, the company was to coordinate each leg of the journey ensuring smooth end-to-end transition between road and rail, handling complex customs clearance requirements at the borders and keeping the customer informed at each stage.

CEO Mr. Edward Lin comments: “At Dimerco we make sure to keep abreast of latest trends and regulations, so that we can provide optimized, efficient and cost-effective solutions for our customers, based on their specific requirements. In this case, we recognized that cross-border train freight would provide the fastest route to destination. However, to deliver a seamless solution, it was necessary to work closely with our long-term trusted strategic partner in Italy and deploy Dimerco’s experience in train freight and technology to manage the complexities involved.”

Key to the success of the enterprise was Dimerco’s dedicated Cross-Border Train Freight (CBTF) Task Force Team that monitors and analyzes the performance and freight capacity of each rail route on a weekly basis.

Team leader of CBTF, Ms. Lexi Zhang, explained: “We were able to take the initiative to adjust the documentation, monitor onsite loading and personally oversee customs clearance while communicating closely with the customer and our strategic partners to ensure everything went to plan. As a result, Dimerco’s performance was pivotal in keeping the construction of the new Beijing Daxing Int’l Airport on schedule.”

Taiwan based transportation and logistics specialist Dimerco has been awarded *MTO (Multimodal Transport Operator) status in India, opening up new opportunities for growth for the company in the subcontinent.

Although well established in India, recognized as a Top 5 Freight Forwarder for inbound volume of Chennai Air Cargo Complex by AAI Cargo Logistics and Allied Services with a network of six owned offices and twelve partner offices, the MTO license will now enable Dimerco to provide extended services to shippers, moving cargo from any land point in India to and from any destination in the world, under a single Contract of Carriage.

Under the terms of India’s Multimodal Transportation Act, only those companies who are registered by the Director General of Shipping can carry out Multimodal Transportation, to protect the interests of shippers. Dimerco’s MTO accreditation demonstrates that it has the necessary expertise, infrastructure and financial status to undertake such Multimodal Transportation.

According to Mr. Edward Lin, CEO of Dimerco, the achievement of MTO status will benefit both customers and partner carriers.

He explains, “The manufacturing hubs in India, which contribute a major share of exports, are located deep in the hinterland and far away from the gateway ports. Therefore, the potential for multimodal transportation – including long and short hauls – is immense. As a Multimodal Transport Operator, Dimerco can now take responsibility for transporting cargo from one point to another, utilising more than one mode of transport, ensuring more efficient and cost-effective door to-door movement of goods for our customers.  We can also now work better with ocean carriers, since carriers do not handle shipments from offline/inland areas of India, so for Dimerco MTO recognition is key for our business development and carrier relationships in India.”

The MTO certification has not only enabled Dimerco to provide more extensive multimodal services to customers, but has also gained recognition for the company within the international forwarding community as approved by the Indian government for multimodal transport operations.
