Surair Cargo Services
The commerce driven economic growth Suriname has experienced in the past decade has generated an increasing demand for transportation.
The SLM and its subsidiary Surair Cargo Services has capitalized on this, not only by expanding its fleet but especially by adapting its services to the changing market conditions as well.
The transportation of goods is a very important link in the logistical chain. Logistics must make sure that the right goods are delivered at the right moment, the right place and in the desired state. The major means of transportation are by road, railway, waterway, air and through pipelines.
Surair Aircargo Services is, as indicated by its name, specialized in air cargo : freight transported by air. So it is a company that offers air transportation services. The company has grown to a large air freight dispatcher with various related and logistical activities. The name already says that the company is able to integrate several ways of transportation, dependent on the wishes of the customer, whereby it performs the management of the chain function.
Contracts and Service level agreements have been entered into with airline companies operating here. Customers of these companies bring their freight to Surair Cargo Services for a complete dispatch. Next to registering, SACS looks after the needed documents for export, like an airway bill for instance and all customs formalities. At delivery the freight is weighed and provided with the required documents under supervision of customs and other authorities controlling the cargo. The goods are stored for transportation in air freight containers or placed on air freight pallets, depending on the destination.
When importing goods the necessary action is undertaken which is entirely dependent on the nature of the cargo. If it concerns large perishable cargo, the possibility will be created, in consultation with customs, for the addressee to immediately clear his goods upon arrival of the flight, to be stored safely somewhere else. If so desired the internal clearing office of SACS can be used saving the customer a lot of work and even domestic road transportation can be taken care of.
SACS constantly invests in human and other resources in order to continuously improve its service.
