From its strategic nesting grounds in Dubai, SAT Albatros Sea-Air Transport enables clients around the world to achieve cost savings and faster time to market with its integrated sea-air freight service. "Our service is based on our clients' trust," says CEO Peter Knopf, of the company's reliable and flexible logistics solutions.

SAT Albatros has winged its way as a leading logistics provider in the Middle East over a span of 28 years by providing a combined sea-air service via its Dubai control towers. It offers clients the luxury of choosing from many sea freight services to connect onto their own freight schedules, which cuts down on time and cost when compared to pure air freight. Clients enjoy guaranteed schedules starting from the origins via Dubai and onwards to Europe, the United States and key emerging markets in South America and Africa.

Recognising Asia as the manufacturing hub of the world, SAT Albatros has many offices throughout the region including Singapore, Shanghai and Hong Kong. The company looks to Vietnam, Indonesia and southwest China as future stronger manufacturing sources. SAT Albatros also gears for more activities in Asia's loading ports as manufacturers, suppliers and buyers from around the world converge in the region. "This motivates us to go to new places like Chongqing to follow production," Knopf says.

The company plans to develop a dynamic sales and marketing team dedicated to attracting more Asian companies to use its services.

With investments in its fleet of long-term charter flights, which can reach up to 10 747s per week, SAT Albatros assures its clients of reliable and timely service wherever its flight path stretches in the world. "For us, it is very important to be in control of the cargo from the very beginning," Knopf says. "Every single box is under our radar. We will not lose it - from the moment it is in our system until it is delivered to the final consignee."
