SAL Terminal Hong Kong

From Copenhagen to Hong Kong

Danish provider Scan Global Logistics (SGL) is continuing its expansion strategy and acquiring Sea-Air Logistics (SAL), effective 5 July 2022. SAL is an air and ocean freight logistics provider headquartered in Hong Kong.

Nine months ago, SGL acquired SAL's longstanding partner, Horizon International Cargo (UK, USA, The Netherlands, Spain and Japan). The takeover is to help SGL further expand its business into technology, pharma & healthcare and other markets.

"An increased market share in Intra-Asia, Far- East Westbound and Trans-Pacific Eastbound trade lanes, coupled with SAL's vast experience in cross-border supply-chain services, will enable SGL to extend and improve its portfolio," said Robert Rankin, managing director of SAL. He will stay on board, as will SAL's 180 employees, and report to Rickard Ingvarsson, CEO Asia. SAL was established in Hong Kong in 1995. (sh)

Top of pageSAL's first Block Charter Train

Block charter train image

The First block charter Train consisting of 52 x 40’ rail containers operated by SAL Sea-Air Logistics from St Petersburg to Tianjin in May 2021.

SAL Successfully completed this first trial of operating a block charter Train for one of our major clients, Chep and a second train will depart on the 31st May 2021 from St Petersburg to Shanghai.

The environmental reduction in emissions as an alternative to the usual ocean shipping is approximately 60% and the accurate transit time enables predictive supply-chain planning which is especially relevant in today’s changing vessel services - it would be almost impossible to load 52 x 40’ containers on one single vessel for one client.

Click for PDF

90 tonne floating dock transported by SAL Shanghai to Oakland with berthing alongside & direct delivery at both the loading & discharge ports of Shanghai & Oakland respectively.

This is the surveyor's report and details all of the steps taken by Sea-Air Logistics to ensure safe loading, safe transportation across the Pacific Ocean and safe unloading with the Customs Clearance arranged in advance of the arrival of the vessel (an absolute necessity to enable direct delivery from the ocean going vessel to the barge alongside).

Throughout the loading SAL appointed the professional surveyor company, Deehun Marine Surveyors Co Ltd with the Port Captain Xu who has worked for SAL for over 20 years in his professional capacity to supervise the preparation and loading of project cargoes.

And at destination, SAL appointed the TT Club surveyor for the Oakland Port area to supervise the unloading and direct discharge of the floating dock.

“Hi Rob,

I would like to thank Sea-Air Logistics for their continued support of HK Scottish throughout this season and last. We are so dependent on the support of our sponsors and the assistance that we receive has allowed us to develop the Club on and off the pitch over the 3 years of the Club's existence. We are continually trying to be the most innovative and cutting edge club in HKG which will hopefully result in greater exposure for our sponsors and create a club that companies look to be associated with.

Thanks once again.

Kind regards
