Dear Valued Customers,

At Satellite we pride ourselves on providing the best service possible to our customers. The changing economic conditions and increased governmental regulations have directly impacted that ability over the last several months.

At this time, we find it necessary to implement a general increase on our local rates as well as accessorial charges. We make every effort to control and reduce costs where possible, but these changes are necessary to ensure that we remain a viable business partner.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support, which we believe will be to our mutual benefit.


Operational difficulties at ORD exacerbated by the pandemic, increased service demands, staffing shortages, and other factors have continued to impede our daily operations. Our goal as always is to provide superb service at an affordable and cost-effective price. Given this, we must implement the following changes, effective Wednesday, June 16, 2021:

Paperwork for export shipments will be required at least 24 hours in advance, with no lockouts prior to 12:00 the following day.

Paperwork for import shipments will be required by 5:00 P.M. the previous day to be picked up next day.

Effective 12/2/2021 we are currently servicing 517 Express Center Drive airlines, including Turkish, Air India, Finnair, Atlas Air, and Singapore Cargo, on Wednesdays and Saturdays only.

We understand the shipments may be time sensitive, but the circumstances that ORD have created are difficult to overcome. Please note that this is not a guarantee of service, and Satellite will not be responsible for any storage charges incurred if not able to recover cargo by the last free day.
