SAS Cargo and Norway Post working together

SAS CARGO AND NORWAY POST WORKING TOGETHER Today, Wednesday 1 July, SAS Cargo and Norway Post, the Norwegian Post Office, entered into an ongoing agreement provisionally set to run for the next 10 years, on the handling of mail at SAS Cargo's new freight terminal at Oslo's Gardermoen airport. The terminal will be taken into operation officially on October 8. Gardermoen will replace Fornebu, as Norway's main airport from the same date. The contract covers the handling of both international and domestic mail. Commenting on the contract on behalf of SAS Cargo, vice president Peter Grønlund says he is proud of the agreement, which reinforces SAS Cargo and SAS Airmail's importance as air freight companies into, out of and within Scandinavia. It also reflects SAS Cargo's investment of over NOK 300 million in building a new terminal, whose quality and swift and efficient handling will benefit customers. According to the IATA's recently-published statistics on the largest carriers of international mail, SAS Air Mail currently ranks joint ninth in the world top ten. The agreement with Norway Post means that SAS Cargo will be responsible for handling all mail at the terminal, to and from foreign and Norwegian flights and between flights. Norway Post will deliver mail to the freight terminal and collect it. The total amount of mail handled each year is estimated to exceed 25,000 tonnes.
