Hactl secures Southern Air contract

Comment on this article

Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals (Hactl) has been awarded the contract to provide ramp handling for US freighter operator Southern Air Inc.

Southern Air – a Kentucky-based wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings – operates 21 rotations per week through Hong Kong, serving Anchorage, Cincinnati, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Leipzig, Milan, Sharjah, Bahrain and Seoul. All Southern Air Hong Kong services use B777 freighters, with most space allocated to DHL Express.

Says Hactl Executive Director Vivien Lau: “We are very pleased to extend our responsibilities for Southern Air to include ramp operations. This enables us to provide them with the enhanced efficiency of a seamless terminal- and ramp-handling service – just as we now do for over 40 other freighter operators in Hong Kong.”

Freighter ramp handling is one of the fastest-growing aspects of Hactl’s business; customers for the service include all 5 of the express and integrator carriers operating into Hong Kong.
