Sodexi, the express handling branch of Air France Cargo based at Paris CDG Airport, is the only neutral specialist express handler working on behalf of the Skyteam alliance airlines, as well as many other carriers and express operators. The agreement will see China Southern employing the Sodexi computer based scanning system to process postal traffic at the airline’s Guangzhou hub. The scanned bags are flown with China Southern’s daily flight to the Sodexi facility at Paris CDG, where worldwide distribution is carried out via the Skyteam network, of which China Southern is a new member. “Our own network is extensive and China’s postal market is one of the biggest in the world. Being part of Skyteam our cooperation with Sodexi gives us direct access to the Skyteam network and strongly proved that combining strength creates added value to our customer,” said China Southern Airlines VP Cargo, Zhou Da. “This excellent scanning system has enabled us to streamline the operation. We now plan our mail expansion in partnership with Sodexi which clearly is the most innovative handler in its field.” Sodexi managing director, JF Bouilhaguet added: “This agreement represents a perfect match for our development plans as not only will we now handle bigger volumes of postal traffic in Paris, but thanks to China Southern, we will be able to reach other markets such as New Zealand where we currently have no network”
