SAS appoints global cargo handling chief

SAS cargo has appointed Klaus Glendorf as vice president of global cargo handling, effective June 1.

Glendorf, a 20-year veteran of the industry, previously was in charge of Copenhagen Air Services and Novia Holding A/S. He had been working for SAS Cargo as a consultant since 2003.

He reports to Kenneth Marx, president and chief executive of SAS Cargo Group A/S, based in Stockholm.

Global Handling is the largest division within SAS Cargo.

Glendorf, who earned a Masters of Science degree from Stanford University, succeeds Anders Skantz, who will head up SAS Cargo's terminals in Sweden, which will be spun off as an independent company this summer. Skantz will be managing director of the new company, which will be majority-held by SAS Cargo.

SAS Cargo has 1,380 employees and operates 12 cargo terminals in Scandinavia and a U.S. hub in Newark, N.J. The group had revenues of $397 million in 2003.
