09 / 03 / 2009
AFC (Air Freight Consolidator) and Swedish airline Nord-flyg have signed a network cooperation deal linking Maastricht in the Netherlands, Weeze and Baden in Germany and Madrid-Barajas, Spain.
The one-year contract will start on 6 April using a Bombardier Q400.
“This contract is highly important for us, as customer satisfaction is our main aim in business,” said managing director of AFC, Ernst Gschnitzer. “This connection is a fundamental addition to the European logistics network to Spain and vice-versa.
“Particularly in hard economic time periods perfect logistics are important for any success of our customers – most essential is high quality service combined with reasonable prices,” said Gschnitzer.
The flight network enables customers of AFC to handover the cargo late in the evening; the Spanish logistics partner will distribute until 8am the following morning throughout the Iberian Peninsula. This connection is the first project; a Europe-wide network will follow. This enables AFC to access all end customers in any European country within a few hours.
