SAS Cargo consolidates sales activities in northern Germany
SAS Cargo said Tuesday it is streamlining its sales representation in central and northern Germany by consolidating all activities in Hamburg.
The new office, the airline said, is in close proximity to its main customers and within easy reach of its air cargo hub in Copenhagen.
'We want to increase focus on North Germany, where our products are most competitive in terms of transit- and lead-times,' said Nils Pries-Knudsen, SAS Cargo vice president of global sales, in a statement. 'We have approximately 50 direct flights from Germany every day and daily airline trucking connections between Frankfurt, D'sseldorf, Hamburg and Scandinavia. This, combined with the fast transit times in Copenhagen of one to four hours depending on the product, means we can offer same- or next-day deliveries in Europe, United States and Asia.'
The move will see call center and sales staff transferred from Munich, Stuttgart, D'sseldorf and Frankfurt to Hamburg.
SAS said a general sales agent selling capacity on routes from Munich and Stuttgart will be appointed in the near future, with the airline aiming to have the new German sales organization in place before the end of the year.
