Exel, the global leader in supply chain management, recently partnered with Cathay Pacific Airways to transport two Chinese tiger cubs to a South African Field Camp.
This is not the first time that Exel has taken part in providing services for charity activities. In September 2004, the team at Exel-Sinotrans, led by Windy Wu, General Manager of Exel in North China, contributed by providing full support to a number of projects while working with the relevant authorities and Cathay Pacific.
Exel delivered the cubs to the Cathay Pacific Ground Handling Agent Cargo Terminal located at Beijing's Capital International Airport, China's busiest airport, in October 2004. The entire process of loading and customs export procedure took Exel less than three hours to complete. A seven-month-old male cub and a six-month-old female cub were successfully uplifted on the plane as scheduled.
As the main sponsor of a Chinese Tiger 'rewilding' charity programme, Cathay Pacific plans to deliver between five to 10 cubs in the near future.
Victor Mok, Managing Director, for Exel in East Asia, commented, "We are very pleased to participate in this charity project which contributes to save wildlife and the environment."
