Saudia Cargo launches online tool for import approval
Saudia Cargo is launching OK-2-KSA, a new online tool aimed at assisting customers to obtain the necessary approvals for the import of five types of goods by air into Saudi Arabia.
OK-2-KSA will enable Saudia Cargo's clients to request approvals online for automotives, dangerous goods, high value goods, human remains and live animals.
Additionally, OK-2-KSA will enable Proof of Delivery (POD) to be requested online for shipments to the airline's hubs in Saudi Arabia.
"The OK-2-KSA tool replaces the current manual approval process of emails/faxes for import shipments to Saudi Arabia. As the global specialist for cargo to Saudi Arabia, Saudia Cargo will handle the OK TO FORWARD-status as required by authorities for the shipments to the Kingdom for our clients. This new online tool is part of our vision to exceed customer requirements through innovative technology," said Peter Scholten, VP Commercial at Saudia Cargo.
"We hope that this new service will provide our clients with the appropriate tools to enhance their business and ensure a smooth shipment process to Saudi Arabia," he added.
Saudi Airlines Cargo operates a fleet of 15 freighters and sells the belly-capacity on 145 passenger aircraft for Saudi Arabia's flag carrier Saudia, spanning a rapidly expanding global network of 225 destinations. In addition to its scheduled freighter services, the cargo airline also provides cost-effective and practical worldwide charter flight solutions from a growing fleet of dedicated charter aircraft.
