Packaging and display manufacturing


A fundamental replacement part of a cutting tool


Transporting the spare parts as soon as possible to avoid delays in the production chain.

Origin and destination

Mexico (IATA:MEX) to El Salvador (IATA:SAL)

Weight & Dimensions

Less than 2 kg in weight, with dimensions similar to a letter-size envelope.

Time from first contact to delivery

Less than 6 hours!

Key aspects of the operation

We implemented a tailor-made solution, different from the one conventionally used by the client.

Our client

A global company founded in El Salvador with 50 years of experience in packaging and displays and presence in Central and North America, the Caribbean and Asia.

The challenge

Our customers’ production line works 24 hours a day to produce packaging for food and cleaning products.

A few hours of disruption can result in a huge delay to the entire supply chain – and delay their products’ delivery to customers.

The challenge in this project was to transport a critical spare part of less than 2 kg, in less than 24 hours, mitigating all possible risks. 

The solution

The best solution tailored to our client’s needs was to use the hand carry services of an on-board courier.

A table shows the operation step by step: Courier receives cargo & takes MEX* – SAL* flight. Courier arrives at MEX* to take the next flight available. Courier onboarding plane confirms near take off to SAL. Aircraft flies to San Salvador. Flight lands successfully. Courier goes through customs and proceeds deliver cargo in hand to customer. *IATA codes
* Airports' IATA codes.

“I was next to the customer waiting for the delivery and I saw how, the moment they opened the package, they took the spare parts and ran to place it directly into the machine. That’s how critical the situation was, and that’s how critical we treated the project – and the successful delivery.” Enrique Olivares, xpd global El Salvador country manager, with Argelia Valdez, xpd global Business Desk COO.
