Network Cargo Systems to represent AirbridgeCargo Airlines

January 14 - Network Cargo Systems Intl. Inc. has been named General Sales & Service Agent (GSSA) for AirBridgeCargo Airlines for USA and Canada.

Network Cargo Systems was founded in 1992 and now has offices in New York, Atlanta, Houston, Orlando, Denver, Los Angeles and Chicago in the USA and Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver in Canada as well as throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. The company, with its respective head offices in New York in the USA and Toronto in Canada, represents a number of key players serving the South Pacific, Europe, Asia, The Middle East and the Caribbean.

"As a result of the cooperation agreement with AirBridgeCargo, we are able to offer our customers reliable services to the Russian market with its strong economic growth. We can provide an excellent product using the non-stop cargo flights operated by AirBridgeCargo to Moscow Sheremetyevo and services in domestic Russia as well as excellent timings to Central Asia," says Howard Jones, President of NCS. He added:

"We look forward to a smooth transition and launch of the AirBridgeCargo product in North America. The emphasis will be placed on offering an excellent product at a competitive price with superior customer service. Making the freight forwarding industry feel at ease in dealing with AirBridgeCargo will be our focus as they need fast response times to quotes, updated information on bookings, uplift information, post flights and accurate information on what is happening in regards to rules and regulations in the Russian market. We know we have a big job ahead in 2010 and beyond but we are very confident that we will succeed and surpass all expectations set out."

Ludwig Hamburger, ABC's Regional Director EMEA, added: "We have access to a tried and tested international network in the shape of Network Cargo Systems. We believe that this cooperation will enable us to increase load factors on our Russian and Central Asia routes to an even greater degree."

Neil Nagarkar, Business Development Director EMEA from ABC, said: "The sales and operational policy executed in Europe for the last 18 months has rewarded us with a high market shares to our main destinations and we wish to replicate this formula in North America and Canada through the carefully selected resources of NCS."
