Dialogue with our members – Union Air & Fu Yo
Union Air Cargo Limited (Union Air) and Fu Yo Warehouse Logistics Company Limited (Fu Yo) are both under the big brand of the listed company Wan Leader International Limited. By having division of labour in between, they are able to provide a thorough service to their clients.
Union Air is an International logistics firm that provides services mainly on air freight. They also involved in businesses like marine freight and delivery consultant. Their routes cover Europe, America and Asia Pacific.
|Fu Yo mainly focuses on warehouse operation. They are also doing businesses including local delivery, storage and value-add service. Procedures like unpacking, prepacking and labelling could be done in their warehouse as a part of their services.|
|Union Air and Fu Yo have a good reputation for providing a “door-to-door” service to their clients. Meaning that from the very beginning of getting order form clients to arriving the final destination, Union Air will cover every part with proper arrangement. Such quality service could not be done without overseas cooperation and decent labour division with Fu Yo.
We then discussed on one of the most burning topics recently, which is RACSF with the General Manager Ryan Pun (Fu Yo), and Operation Manager Jimmy Ip (Union Air) and they reflected their insight on this topic.
They admitted that facing such massive change is not an easy task. Jimmy concerned about the complexity of the situation, overall cost increase and difficulties of finding a proper location for warehouses. The current warehouse model is not sufficient of facing this change, as Jimmy indicated. He followed up with the need of expanding and separation of warehouse, saying that the RACSF, logistics and air freight warehouse could no longer be managed together. At the end, he foresees that the export rate of Hong Kong will drop naturally because of the former mode of hasty cargo flow will be faded out. He described that the industry is having a passive role in this situation, waiting for updates and instructions from the authorities.
Despite of the fact that the situation is challenging, it creates some new opportunities. When facing this rapid change, the whole industry is starting on the same line. The opportunity lays equally in front of every logistics practitioner. Moreover, escalation of safety and security standard is a global trend, and Hong Kong must not be left behind. Safety and security are critical in aviation since every one of us has a chance of boarding on a plane, as they said.
So when we talked about SCSA, they said that they are expecting immediate updates regarding on these issues. Timing is essential when it comes to information management. The whole industry is under a demanding situation, and we understand our members’ needs. So we are always sticking to the latest news and share it to our members. Currently, we gather a group of logistics practitioners and formed a RACSF concern group. We discuss practical issues of RACSF, as well as invited different stakeholders joining us to come up with a big picture of RACSF. For more details, you can also go to our website:
