January 17 - NEO Air Charter - a founder member of the Global Charter Alliance - has entered into a strategic partnership with Nordic-based general sales and services agent (GSSA) Cargo Care International.

Cargo Care International will provide sales coverage for NEO Air Charter throughout Denmark, Sweden, Finland, the Faroe Islands and Iceland.

Cargo Care International, founded in 2007, has grown into the largest GSSA in Scandinavia and the Nordics. Along the way it has gained considerable experience in organising cargo charters, and according to Cargo Care ceo Anders Herrgaard Jepsen: "Marketing NEO's charter capabilities throughout Denmark, Sweden and Finland enables us to offer our freight agent customers a one-stop solution for all their airfreight needs, from general scheduled cargo through to full charters. It also gives us access to a much wider selection of charter carriers and aircraft."

Jepsen added "the potential for charter services in our region - particularly for moving urgent ships' spares and oil industry equipment - is considerable."

Stefan Kohlmann, joint ceo of NEO Air Charter, commented: "Cargo Care has a well-developed appreciation of the charter sector, and close relations with every airfreight agent in Denmark, Sweden and Finland. These factors make it the ideal partner to promote our services throughout the region, and to further expand our catchment."
