“Rafael brings extensive experience to Delta – not only through his knowledge of the cargo and ground handling industry, but also through his understanding of the Latin America market,” said Shawn Cole, Delta Cargo – vice president.
“With his familiarity of Aeromexico, we will also be able to deepen and strengthen the cargo joint co-operation agreement between Delta and Aeromexico, as well as continue the momentum of providing industry leading operations and customer service.”
