JOHN Barnett, co-founder of UK-based GSA Wexco Airfreight, has died after a long-term illness.

Wexco, which later became part of the Kales GSA network, was one of the earliest specialist sales agencies to emerge in the air cargo business, in 1979.

“It is a testament to his extraordinary hard work and professionalism that the company survived and prospered through many of the most difficult years in the industry’s history,” reflects group chairman Peter Kales.
