American Airlines Cargo has selected G Force GSA Mexico as its new General Sales Agent (GSA) in Mexico, following the retirement of American’s current GSA.

The deal starts on July 1 and will also provide the airline with local sales expansion into five new locations — Cancun, Guadalajara, Leon, Puerto Vallarta and Monterrey — while continuing its presence at Mexico City.

“Mexico is a very important part of our worldwide network, with a high demand for both inbound and outbound cargo traffic such as pharmaceuticals, auto parts and seafood,” said Shanna Abbott, American Airlines Cargo’s GSA contracts manager.

“Having G Force represent us throughout Mexico will enhance service for our customers who ship to or from these key cities. A local presence is a sure-fire way for us to ensure that each customer’s needs are being met.”

“As cargo needs increase throughout Mexico, customers want to know that their goods are going to be shipped quickly and reliably,” said Marcel Barjau, station manager for G Force.

Our team has experience in cargo with a variety of airlines and logistics venues. We have a unique understanding of the needs of customers and of our local markets."
