Chapman Freeborn and AIA Cargo announce strategic cooperation

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has signed a strategic cooperation with Airbridge International Agencies (AIA) Cargo to strengthen services in Ireland.

UK-headquartered Chapman Freeborn is now AIA’s exclusive partner for charters to and from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Working with AIA’s Dublin-based team, the agreement gives local customers greater access to full charter, part charter and on-board courier services.

“We’re delighted to be working with AIA Cargo. The cargo industry in Ireland is a close-knit community, and AIA’s local expertise and relationships make this the perfect fit. Our two companies have distinct areas of expertise but a shared focus on innovative cargo solutions and excellent customer service.” Says Pierre van der Stichele, group cargo operations director at Chapman Freeborn.

“We see great potential working with Chapman Freeborn and are excited to be introducing their services to customers across Ireland. They have been at the forefront of the charter industry for over 45 years, and we look forward to seeing the relationship go from strength to strength.” adds Mark Andrew, CEO of AIA Cargo.

The announcement comes at a time when Brexit negotiations are still unresolved, and businesses across the UK and Ireland are preparing themselves for potential supply chain issues.
