Massive surge in crab deliveries for Guangzhou's mid-Autumn festival

Chinese carrier China Southern Airlines is expected to deliver 2.7 tonnes of crab every single day of September to meet the massive demand for curried crab dishes for the Guangzhou's mid Autumn festival - thats approximately 1000 crabs a day!  The crustaceans are being imported from across Asia, with Bangladesh, Thailand and Malaysia supplying the majority.

China Southern Airlines has set strict time limits for all stages of the delivery operation, with a time limit of 80 minutes set between when the crabs reach the airport and when they are expected to arrive at Guangzhou harbour. 

Deliveries of perishable foods such as the meat of these tasty crustaceans often requires a specialist temperature-sensitive as well as time-sensitive service. For shipments to China of ambient goods, or other non-foodstuffs, which do not require the maintenance of a particular temperature, shippers can save a great deal of money by booking with a reseller such as Transglobal Express, who offer the services of quality global carriers such as UPS, FedEx and DHL at up to 70% off the standard prices.
