New Italian office opened by Chapman Freeborn

June 17 - Air charter broker Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has opened a new office in Turin in response to growing demand for its services.

The office will work closely with Chapman Freeborn's international offices to further strengthen the company's cargo charter presence in Italy and across Southern Europe.

 

Pierre Van Der Stichele, a member of the Chapman Freeborn Airchartering (Italia) management team, said: "While Chapman Freeborn has maintained a presence in Italy for a number of years, it was felt that we needed to properly consolidate our position in the market and respond to the growing demand for our charter services."

 

Turin was considered the ideal location to situate Chapman Freeborn's newest hub as it is home to major Italian automotive and aerospace manufacturers, in addition to many other industries with cargo aircraft charter requirements.

 

The broker will focus on expanding its client base of freight forwarders and logistics providers in Italy; the country has a significant manufacturing sector and still has a strong export industry, particularly in the project cargo sector.

 

Enrico Fantini, Matteo Forapani and Giuseppe D'Anna have also joined the management team.
