Air Partner joins AirCargoGroup

UK-based charter broker Air Partner has joined the AirCargoGroup (ACG) global association of airfreight wholesalers and consolidators.
As a preferred vendor and associate partner, Air Partner will be able to use ACG’s neutral airfreight wholesale and handling services worldwide, as well as its block space agreements with commercial airlines for part charters.
Air Partner’s business development manager for freight, Stuart Smith, described it as “a good strategic move for both Air Partner and ACG: Air Partner offices worldwide will have global access to neutral airfreight professionals for our part charter procurement and full charter handling requirements, while ACG can now benefit from value-added charter solutions to its freight forwarder customers. We believe we have found a partner who shares a similar set of values to ours.”

Christos Spyrou, executive director of ACG, added: “This new partnership will be beneficial for all ACG members who can now offer Air Partner’s neutral full charter solutions to their customers.”
ACG, founded 11 years ago in Shanghai, is an association of neutral airfreight wholesalers and consolidators. It exclusively serves transporters and freight forwarders, and not shippers. It currently has 50 members in 65 countries and is “actively looking for members,” said Spyrou.
