A. About Us

The origins of Cardig International date back three decades ago to provide better cargo handling services to international airlines serving the international airport at Halim Perdanakusuma. Following the opening of Jakarta’s new Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Cardig International established its ground handling arm, JAS Airport Services, to provide world class services to international airlines. JAS’s first customers included Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, Lufthansa and Malaysian Airlines.
The quality of JAS’s service soon attracted domestic customers as well, and took responsibility for handling Sempati Air, Airfast and Merpati, extending its service to include Denpasar.
Cardig International’s aviation services, delivered through the JAS brand by three business entities, now include ground handling, aero-engineering, catering and cargo handling, and embrace the entire archipelago, serving the needs of airlines from around the globe.
In recent years, logistics has become an important part of Cardig International’s operation, providing transport and distribution solutions for multinational companies operating in Indonesia through its logistics group comprising UPS Indonesia, Go-Trans, Cardig Express and Cardig Air.
As globalisation continues, cost concerns increase, and local customers become ever more demanding, more and more customers will choose Cardig International as their partner in ensuring that products, and people, get to the right place, at the right time, at the right price.
Cardig International is empowering the customers’ core business through innovative solutions.
Mission: to empower our customers’ core business by providing innovative solutions.
