Identifying the needs of the present precision driven business culture, SriLankan Cargo will push its ‘Hub in the Ocean” concept to the next level, launching a regional charter service.
The move expands on SriLankan Cargo’s current scheduled service to 50 destinations in 28 countries, serviced by its two dedicated freighters and 14 mainline Airbus Aircraft.
Head of SriLankan Cargo, Nalin Rodrigo said, “It was a wonderful challenge in building the Hub in the Ocean and we have successfully captured significant market share in the South Asian region.”
“The new initiative expands our reach worldwide, giving our customers a single air cargo service provider.”
Businesses can now fly their cargo to any destination across South Asia, even points not connected by regular scheduled services on short notice, with all landing clearances obtained by SriLankan Cargo.
The service also allows businesses to leverage the benefit of a single service provider, avoiding possible delays and losses caused by breaking up the consignments and the different routes taken by each operator.
“While scheduled services give businesses a regular connection to key destinations around the world, the globalisation and the fast pace of businesses sometimes demands collection and delivery to remote locations,” Rodrigo said.
SriLankan Cargo has become an integral part of the supply chain for many leading brand name manufacturers, who depend heavily on just in time delivery of raw material from suppliers and finished goods to their customers.
SriLankan Cargo with its own warehousing facilities in Colombo and long standing partnership with some of the leading air cargo handlers in each market it operates, has proven itself as a vital link between the Far East, the Middle East and European destinations.
“We live the concept of ‘shipped as booked’, giving our partners the reliable link they so much depend on to connect them, their suppliers and their customers,” Rodrigo said.
SriLankan cargo is the largest foreign carrier into India and the Maldives with over 100 weekly flights. In India alone SriLankan cargo operates regular schedules to 10 destinations.
