Copenhagen / Denmark, January 30, 2014 – Kuehne + Nagel has prolonged its partnership as external logistics provider with SAS Scandinavian Airlines (SAS Technical Operation) for another three years.
Kuehne + Nagel has been responsible for all external logistics services of SAS Scandinavian Airlines for several years. The cooperation has proven to be very successful for both partners and was recently extended for another three years.
Kuehne + Nagel – who operates an office at Copenhagen Airport – provides seamless door-to-door solutions wherever and whenever required by SAS and offers a broad range of services. Just as varied are the products handled, reaching from an aircraft engine to the bolt of a cockpit window.
A Kuehne + Nagel core team is constantly reviewing and optimizing the supply chain resulting in both reduced logistics costs as well as increased process efficiency.
“A smooth and innovative supply chain is extremely important for airlines”, says Jens Davidsen, Airfreight Director of Kuehne + Nagel Denmark. “Any irregularity or an error can cause very high costs, for instance if an aircraft must be held on the ground because of the late delivery of spare parts. We are looking forward to the coming years as reliable partner generating added value for SAS.”
