In view of customer demand and market potential, SAS Cargo has decided to strengthen 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, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Scandinavia. This, combined with the fast transit times in Copenhagen of 1-4 hours depending on the product, means we can offer same- or next-day deliveries in Europe, United States and Asia, says Nils Pries-Knudsen, SAS Cargo VP Global Sales.
In order to have the sales presence needed to provide optimal services, SAS Cargo consolidates all German activities in Hamburg. Call center and sales staff from Munich, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt will therefore be transferred to 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, Nils Pries-Knudsen explains.
A general sales agent selling SAS Cargo capacity on routes from Munich and Stuttgart will be appointed in the near future. The aim is to have the new German sales organization in place before the end of the year.
SAS Cargo's future German setup reflects SAS' overall concept of Service and Simplicity.
