“This is real challenge for SF Systems Qingdao because this is the first time we have been involved in air market operations so deeply, in addition of course to doing local sales work as normal. This is an important step for our company’s development,” explained XiangYu, General Manager Assistant.
In addition to the normal trade routes between China, Korea and Japan, they are also operating services from Incheon to Yuzhno-Sakhalin in Russia for the oil and gas industry with a regular service but at more reasonable rates.
“We hope that our fellow CQR members who have these kinds of shipments in this area will contact SF Systems Qingdao to be their air project cargo solution provider,” said Xiang Yu.
