Sterling partners with SATS

Sterling has partnered with SATS Ltd. (SATS) to expedite first- and last-mile airside services for time-critical Aircraft-on-Ground (AOG) shipments.

While Singapore and London Heathrow airports have been identified for a trial phase, the companies plan to implement the services at other airports within Sterling’s network in the coming months.

The collaboration between Sterling and SATS will focus on optimising handling processes to support the urgent needs of the aviation industry and expediting the delivery of aircraft components to resolve AOG situations quickly.

Rob Broderick, Executive Vice President for Sterling says: “Sterling is committed to helping our customers minimise time on the ground in an AOG situation and maintaining the integrity of their commercial aircraft fleets.

“This joint service with SATS will expedite first- and last-mile support to shorten delivery windows and get aircraft back in service faster.”

Henry Low, Chief Operating Officer for SATS, added: “This is a great example of the innovative solutions that we can develop with our partners and can scale across our global network.

“We are working together with Sterling & Kuehne+Nagel to continue to create new services that will benefit our customers and enhance their operational efficiency.”
