Chapman Freeborn OBC India adds to business development team

Chapman Freeborn has added two new members of staff to its on-board courier (OBC) team in India in line with expected growth in the country.
Franklin Henry and Paraq Joshi have both been added to Chapman Freeborn’s on-board courier business development team in India, having previously held management and sales positions serving leading cargo airlines.
Chapman Freeborn said the appointments were part of an expansion drive in line with expectations that India will become an increasingly key market for OBC services.
“Surging economic growth of 7.6% coupled with the Indian government’s recent ‘Make in India’ initiative has seen the country’s manufacturing industries go from strength to strength – with growing demand for hand-carry services for automotive cargo, electrical components and other time-critical equipment,” the company said.
Chapman Freeborn India country manager Shailendra Seth said: “We are delighted to welcome Franklin Henry and Paraq Joshi to Chapman Freeborn. 
“Working together with our international offices we will focus on expanding our specialist aircraft charter and OBC activities in India.”
Chapman Freeborn OBC general manager Nikolai Bergmann added: “We have experienced a significant growth in demand for OBC services to and from India over the last year as the benefits of our hand-carry services have become known.
“India presents a real opportunity for us and we’re excited about increasing the number of logistics companies and manufacturers who will have access to markets worldwide.”
