Member Focus: SACO Bolivia

SACO Bolivia began their air product operations at the beginning of 2015. They are based in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, which serves as Bolivia’s commercial centre. SACO Bolivia offers logistics solutions to freight forwarders. Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) serves as the base of SACO Bolivia’s business model.

They offer services to and from the main cities of Bolivia, including the Viru Viru International Airport (VVI), Cochabamba, Bolivia – San Jose De La Banda (CBB) and El Alto International Airport, La Paz (LPB). Due to their association with AirCargoGroup, they are able to offer professional advice and ensure a fluid exchange of information to their clients across the entire logistics chain – from the collection of cargo up until its departure.

Bolivia’s main imports include machinery and transport equipment, chemicals and related products, mineral fuels and lubricants, iron and steel and food products and livestock. While raw mining materials, natural gas, and hydrocarbons are some of Bolivia’s largest exports. SACO Bolivia specialises in handling pharma, household and general cargo.
