[photopress:logistics_SAL.JPG,full,alignright]The SAL Logistics Enterprises Alliance – Shanghai Airlines (SAL), China United Airlines, SAL Cargo International, SAL International Cargo Services, Shanghai Crane Transportation and Dahang International Transportation — is being called China’s first air logistics alliance.
It is up against the established heavies – DHL, FedEx, TNT and UPS – and they are all fighting for for a slice of the Shanghai market.
Last November DHL established a North Asia hub project at Pudong while UPS set up its Asia transfer center at the airport.
Thus the competition is great.
SAL chairman, Zhou Chi. said the new alliance is trying to position itself alongside Shanghai’s developing logistics sector.
SAL owns about 70 freight and passenger aircraft, which operate on about 30 international and regional routes and around 170 domestic destinations.
The group’s network covers more than 60 medium-sized and large cities in China and overseas.
By 2010, SAL plans to own 100 aircraft.
