SAS Cargo is now entering the Vietnamese air cargo market and has assigned general sales agent, Vector Aviation, to develop the Vietnamese market. This means shorter lead times for air cargo between Vietnam and Scandinavia.

The growing production of especially textiles, footwear and foodstuff in Vietnam has created a market for air cargo, which we would like to develop further. At the same time we will also be able to offer our Scandinavian customers with a need for sending air cargo to Vietnam a better service, says Nils Pries-Knudsen, Vice President Global Sales in SAS Cargo.

The air cargo will be transported via Bangkok, Thailand, and hence benefit from the fast transfer and connection to SAS’ daily departures to Copenhagen and Stockholm in Scandinavia. The transit time from Vietnam to Scandinavia will thereby be shortened to a mere 24 hours.
