Chamber News, Member News 16th May 2020

AAI established a dedicated PPE team to bring in urgently needed equipment from around the globe. Organised just 14 days ago after appointment, vital PPE equipment is already on the frontline with doctors and nurses across the UK.

AAI super accelerated PPE supply chain is now in full flow, covering every mode of transport and taking top priority through our global network of operations and facilities.

By far, the most complex operation is the management of the Chinese supply chain through an air freight charter programme, which saw the first flight arrive on Tuesday 5th May carrying over 350,000 items of mixed PPE equipment onboard. This included face masks, gloves, aprons and gowns, all carried in the cabin and the belly hold of the Boeing 777-300 aircraft.

Our PPE team, warehouse and transport team worked through the night to ensure the desperately needed PPE was delivered Thursday/Friday  last week

Now that the first charter has been delivered and the second arriving today 5th May from here on in, there will virtually be 2/3 PPE flights from Shanghai.per week. All flights will be managed by AAI , delivered and treated with the same urgency and priority as the first charter.

We are managing millions of units of PPE  with every piece of equipment being monitored and their status and visibility shared with everyone who needs to know in real time.

We know how important our job is and we will make sure that every piece of equipment arrives safely from the factories to the people who need them, as fast as humanly possible.

We treat our responsibility very seriously. Our PPE team as well as the AAI  global network are dedicated to providing supply chain solutions which everyone can rely on.

We are making a real difference to help save lives during these unprecedented times and we are so proud of the expertise, commitment and professionalism of our employees in the way we have deployed our services and facilities so rapidly to support our country.

We are aiming for  a charter to arrive at Glasgow Airport on Sunday 24th May.

If you have any specific requirements from China to Scotland and wish to use this flight for PPE and related products please do not hesitate to contact the AAI team by calling Stuart McLean on 07787 092092 or emailing Stuart.Mclean@aai-Intl.co.uk
