Coyne hires Air Logistics

COYNE Airways has appointed Air Logistics as its general sales agent in the US with the aim to increase its share of air cargo shipments to the Caspian region and the Middle East.

Under the terms of the new contract, effective immediately, Air Logistics will be responsible for all US sales for Coyne Airways with the exception of Virginia, West Virginia, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware, where the company will continue its sales and marketing activities with Ray Wach. Wach has been Coyne Airways’ sales representative in this region since April 2005.

Larry Coyne, chief executive officer of Coyne Airways, said: “In Air Logistics, we are confident we have chosen a partner capable of providing the selling expertise, fast response times and service levels that are synonymous with Coyne’s services. Through its US locations in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Miami and New York, Air Logistics will provide wider geographical coverage and local contacts to meet the growing demand for the destinations we serve.

“Another bonus of this new association is that Air Logistics represents several of our interline partners and is therefore able to provide quicker access to first carrier selection for the majority of Coyne clients that move freight on a through 575 airway bill to final destination from their local US gateway.”

Terry Coyne, who has represented Coyne Airways in the Houston region for the past decade has joined Air Logistics as a consultant – based at the company’s Houston office – and will continue to work on sales and business development for Coyne Airways.

Stephen Dawkins, chief operations officer America, Air Logistics Group, said: “Coyne Airways’ niche markets and Air Logistics’ comprehensive coverage perfectly complement each other. Both companies build their business by providing a quality product and high standards of customer service, the key ingredients to a successful partnership in these challenging times.”
