Effective as of October 1, UK-headquartered global general sales agent (GSA) ACP Worldwide will extend its current representation for Abu-Dhabi-based Etihad Cargo in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland to include Brisbane.

ACP will then handle the UAE flag-carrier’s freight sales across “all major freight hubs in Australia and New Zealand”, a statement from the GSA pointed out.

ACP Worldwide’s regional director Australia & New Zealand, Ross Di Lizio, explained that the Etihad Cargo decision builds on a relationship which dates back to 2010. He said that ACP now has the opportunity to provide “success and growth for Etihad Cargo throughout all our offices on a truly national basis”.

Etihad Cargo manager Australia & New Zealand Colin Nicholls enthuses: “Our longstanding partnership with ACP Worldwide has been a key factor in Etihad Cargo’s success in the Australian and New Zealand markets.

“Together we have been able to provide shippers with swift, reliable movement of their cargo to markets around the world.

“The addition of Brisbane to ACP’s representation of Etihad Cargo means our customers will receive the same seamless service right across Australia.”

Etihad Cargo provides freight capacity on all of its long-haul services out of Australia, which feature two daily flights out of Melbourne operated by Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft, 11 flights a week out of Sydney operated by B777s and A380s, as well as daily B787 services out of both Brisbane and Perth.
