"We've definitely seen an impact in certain trade routes," said Alex Hungate, president and CEO of airport ground-handler and catering solutions provider SATS.
While there are "strong flows" between countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and China, trade volumes in Greater China — which includes mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan — are "softer," Hungate told CNBC's "Squawk Box."
Listed on the Singapore Exchange, SATS operates in over 60 locations and 13 countries across Asia and the Middle East.
Overall, Greater China would be the most sensitive to the trade fracas, said Hungate.
Hungate confirmed the phenomenon of "front-loading" — where exporters benefit from increased orders before tariffs hit — as he witnessed 300 Harley-Davidson bikes lined up at a freight terminal for shipping.
In October, Harley-Davidson Chief Financial Officer John Olin said the American motorcycle manufacturer was expecting to pay at least an additional $40 million this year to cover the costs of new tariffs across the world. Harley-Davidson is doing everything it can to minimize the impact of tariffs on its profits, he said.
Markets are now keeping their eyes on a much-touted meeting later this month between U.S. President and China President at the for any signs of easing tensions in the trade war.
