National Air Cargo expands in Asia
Freight forwarder National Air Cargo will expand its presence in Asia.
The Orchard Park, N.Y.-based company recently formed a sales team for Asia and added toll-free telephone numbers that will be maintained for extended hours through a dedicated call center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
'This investment is based on our significant growth in the Asian marketplace, which has grown by approximately 50 percent in just the last year alone,' said Alan White, regional director of the Pacific Rim for National Air Cargo. 'We are confident that this allocation of corporate resources will provide us with a significant return on our investment in this emerging global marketplace.'
White will head the new sales team in Asia. Hari Subramaniam has been reassigned from Dubai to India to lead the sales effort there. Haryati Nordin has been hired to help sales efforts in the commercial and charter markets and will be based in Kuala Lumpur.
Also joining the new sales team is Walter Edwards as business development manager and Keiko Takatsu as account executive, both based in Japan. Martha Chung has been hired as sales support executive and will be based in Seoul, where she will manage the local National Air Cargo office and provide all servicing for the country's shipping clients.
The call center will be staffed to manage calls in various languages. The toll-free numbers will provide customers the ability to contact National Air Cargo from anywhere in Asia and schedule shipping, track deliveries, or use any of the company's freight forwarding services.
