Plaza Forwarding handles two charters with medical aid in the battle against Covid 19.

Plaza Forwarding continues to give added value to the logistic chain whilst the pandemic devastates many important sectors around the world. Last weekend two charters flights from China brought much needed medical aid to help in the war against Covid – 19.

Last week two charter flights arrived from Shenzhen airport. Specially adapted A340 passenger aircraft were used to bring 40 tons of medical material to Madrid airport.

Chartering has been fully handled by Plaza Forwarding, in cooperation with Iberia, on an airport to airport basis. At the reception at Madrid airport, the cargo was immediately distributed to the final destination.

“We cannot relax, there’s still a huge lack of this vital aid material, and we must endure”, said Emilio Plaza, CEO of Plaza Forwarding.

Passenger Aircraft Cargo adaptation

Many Public Organizations and Private Industries are still waiting for these much needed products to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. In order to restart economic activity during the actual and forthcoming pandemic phases, we still need much more medical equipment to cover actual and future population needs in the struggle against the virus.

Plaza Forwarding handles international transport and have had their own customs representation since 1997. More than 50 professional staff are working at our facilities in Madrid Barcelona and Valencia.

Boeing 737

Boeing 737
This is the first charter Boeing 737 of a serie of 3 that we’re handling from China,
destined to Lombardia.
It’s carrying FFP2 masks and safety goggles, that must be
necessarily packed into carton boxes.
During this emergency, lots of flights have
been adapted to have cargo stowed both into cargo load and in the areas usually
reserved for passengers.
As Mattei said “Brilliance is to see a possibility where
nobody else can”.

News Item from John S Connor, USA.

Governor Larry Hogan announced that the State of Maryland has acquired 500,000 COVID-19 tests from South Korea’s LabGenomics. Operation Enduring Friendship was deemed an exponential game-changing step forward on our large-scale testing initiative. In the recent press conference the Governor thanked LabGenomics, Samsung SDS for the logistical support, Korean Air for the charter flight, the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency, John S. Connor Global Logistics, and the entire Operation Enduring Friendship team.

Lee Connor, President of John S. Connor, explained “we were asked to consult on a number of issues related to the import of the test kits from Korea. This involved logistics details to transport the kits from Korea to its final destination at a temperature controlled facility. This included certain aspects of the customs clearance and FDA clearance required for this product. Ultimately we provided the services to clear Customs and FDA as well as helped to facilitate the final delivery to a warehouse carried out by the State National Guard.”

We are proud that Connor could contribute to this important mission to import these life-saving tests so important to fight COVID-19.
