The three new directors have a long-standing background with the company and will be focusing on the continued development of the CF Group, with Chris and Carol maintaining an active role in helping move the business forward.

Established in 1973, Chapman Freeborn specialises in moving urgent cargo, peacekeeping equipment and humanitarian supplies, heavy and outsize pieces, high value commodities, dangerous goods and AOG parts.
