They recently moved 24 live Gentoo Penguins from New Zealand to Shanghai via air freight

Now365 Logistics Limited, a Coop member in Auckland, New Zealand, has recently concluded shipping an unusual cargo consisting of 24 live penguins from Auckland to Shanghai, China. This delicate project took months of planning only to be delayed further in March due to the lockdown in New Zealand.

As stated by Mr Ruwan Premathilaka, Managing Director of Now365 Logistics, “Planning and executing this offbeat project was not simple and credit goes to our entire team for the safe handover of these charming creatures.”
As soon as the lockdown was lifted, the Now365 team continued their efforts to safely organize the transportation of these gentoo penguins from the Sea Life Kelly Tarltons Aquarium in Auckland all the way to Shanghai. “From organizing the refrigerated truck to 4 Celsius temperature onboard the plane, no details were overlooked to ensure zero mortality. Although this was a special project, our team at Now365 is passionate about taking special care of each and every piece of cargo we handle,” adds Mr Premathilaka.
