More airplanes have arrived from China with the equipment to help fight the coronavirus.

Our group of companies, CECZ maintains the cargo air bridge between China busiest airports and Budapest, and in the last two weeks we have managed the purchasing of more than 116 tonnes and near 12.000 cartons of medical equipment, the transporting, airport cargo handling and the customs clearance of import air goods and the transit of inland goods.

Over the weekend, five aircraft arrived with new shipments, and their air pallets were handled in our group’s warehouse in BUD Cargo City.

The goods have been forwarded to the correct destinations in cooperation with the public health distribution centre.

Another contingent of protective equipment has arrived in a shipment organised by Ghibli, this time by train.

Another medical shipment arrived from China at the BILK Combined Terminal on Monday.

The state secretary responsible for transport policy at the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (ITM) received the train of 41 wagons. Also, Wu Jiang and Zoltán Szabó, the managing directors of Ghibli Group of Companies, were present at the event. The flight arrived in Hungary due to the exceptional international cooperation of Ghibli Group of Companies and Rail Cargo Hungaria.

The freight train arrived on China’s traditional Silk Road route and forwarded nearly 20 Hungarian and international companies’ commercial products. The train carried, among others medical protective supplies, masks, gloves, cleaning clothes and other tools.

It means a huge importance the shortness of the transit time, the delivery with the train took 18 days from Jinan to Budapest. This delivery time is at least 10-15 days shorter than the average container carrier ships’ average time.

The Ghibli Group has been committed for many years and is making serious efforts to make our country the distribution centre for Chine goods in Europe. Ghibli won the certification of State of China by a unique way, the Overseas Economic and Trade Cooperation Zone certification, with which the Chinese government awarded the company as a European logistics service provider for Chinese companies.

The cooperation does not end here, the next train carrying protective equipment has left for Budapest.
