Teleport (previously known as RedCargo Logistics) is the cargo and logistics platform for AirAsia, set up to disrupt the way air cargo is managed, sold and transported. Teleport acts as the sole and exclusive capacity owner, or Cargo Master General Sales Agent for the AirAsia and AirAsia X group of airlines.
Cargo has traditionally been an unloved and backward business line for many airlines (ourselves included) but a US$4+ billion market is up for grabs in Southeast Asia. Disintermediation of the supply chain will require airlines to shift to a more transparent, direct and dynamic approach to managing, selling and settlement of cargo. The value proposition is simple; belly space cargo is the last to be exploited, least digitized but most profitable source of airline revenue waiting to be transformed, and only major customers - like AirAsia - willing to make a step change can force the re-ordering and disintermediation of the value chain.
