Asia Airfreight Terminal Named “The Airfreight Service Provider of the Year” at HKCT Business Award 2024

Hong Kong, 28 March, 2024 - Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT), a subsidiary of SATS Ltd, is honoured to receive the prestigious “The Airfreight Services Provider of the Year” award from Hong Kong Commercial Times Business Awards 2024. 

The Hong Kong Commercial Times (HKCT) is a well-known media platform that annually recognises and honours exceptional enterprises in the industry. The award "The Airfreight Services Provider of the Year" affirms AAT's efforts and achievements over the year through a review of the company's corporate accomplishments, market competitiveness, branding, and professionalism.

Accepting the award in the presence of Hong Kong senior business leaders, AAT Chief Executive Mike Chew said, “It is a wonderful honour to be recognised with this award because it affirms our dedicated team in the airfreight business. As air travel continues to recover in Hong Kong, AAT will be committed to grow and maintain its investments in the business. This recognition also validates our ongoing efforts to improve business efficiency and service offerings."

Since 1998, AAT has a strong commitment to excellence as an air cargo terminal operator. With two state-of-the-art terminals covering 166,000 square meters warehouse area for an annual cargo handling capacity of 1.5 million tonnes, AAT offers exceptional cargo handling and logistics services to over 50 international airlines. AAT's facilities accommodate perishables, multi-temperature cargo, dangerous goods, livestock, and high-value air cargo, ensuring efficient flow of goods.

Going beyond the core business offerings of an air cargo terminal operator, AAT also offers personalised and a customisable range of extended logistics services to the shipping public and airline customers via its logistics arm, Asia Airfreight Services (AAS) to enhance customer experience. The AAS services include the AAS SecurePlus, an integrated screening & logistic solution for e-commerce shipments, and AAS ChinaLink — which offers road feeder services to facilitate the transportation of cargo between major cities in mainland China and the global market via Hong Kong under a land-air intermodal approach.

Recognising Hong Kong's role as a gateway to China and a preferred transshipment center for air freight, in early 2023, AAT launched the upstream acceptance service at the Hong Kong International Airport Logistics Park (HKIALP) in Dongguan, which further optimizes supply chain connectivity of China through Hong Kong with the rest of the world, under the sea-air intermodal.
