Chapman Freeborn wins top cargo charter award

June 16 - For the fourth consecutive year Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has won the Air Cargo Charter Broker of the Year prize at the ACW World Air Cargo Awards.

George Mikhailov, manager of Chapman Freeborn's China team, collected the award on behalf of the company's worldwide offices at a ceremony in Shanghai attended by leading figures from the cargo aviation industry. 

During the last 12 months, in addition to day to day work for freight forwarders and logistics providers, Chapman Freeborn has been involved in providing support for the earthquake disaster in Haiti and notably used the Antonov 225, the world's largest fixed-wing aircraft, for the first time on an operation in South America, to transport four pieces of oil and gas equipment totalling almost 150 tonnes from Houston to Sao Paulo.
