SAS Cargo Strengthen Representation in Germany
28 / 09 / 2008
IN view of customer demand and market potential, SAS Cargo has decided to strengthen its own sales representation in Central and Northern Germany. SAS Cargo’s German sales office will be located in Hamburg in close proximity to the main customers and within easy reach of the Copenhagen air cargo hub.
“We want to increase focus on North Germany, where our products are most competitive in terms of transit- and lead-times. We have approximately 50 direct flights from Germany every day and daily airline trucking connections between Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Scandinavia. This, combined with the fast transit times in Copenhagen of one-four hours depending on the product, means we can offer same- or next-day deliveries in Europe, US and Asia,” said Nils Pries-Knudsen, SAS Cargo vice-president global sales.
In order to have the sales presence needed to provide optimal services, SAS Cargo consolidates all Germany activities in Hamburg.
“Instead of having five small representations in various parts of Germany, we will have one office geared to meet all requirements of Central and North German customers. This will improve our service and reduce costs,” said Pries-Knudsen.
