On board courier service flying at ACS

Air Charter Service‘s on board courier (OBC) department, launched in the Spring, is currently averaging a booking every twelve hours and is already 40% ahead of budget. 
 
Oliver Weigelt, the company’s global time critical manager, commented: “We are doing 60-70 jobs a month and we’re expecting to do even more in October and in the run up to Christmas, when time critical shipments are generally in demand the most.

“With a database of over 25,000 freight forwarders, we found the demand to be instant and overwhelming. We were set a pretty high target for this year but, so far, we are almost 40% up on that. We targeted turning over £10m by 2020, but we might now have to revaluate that figure and aim a bit higher. We will be looking to expand the team before the end of year too, to cope with the popularity.”
