Chapman Freeborn Has Won ‘Air Cargo Charter Broker of the Year’ for Fifth Year in a Row

Chapman Freeborn lands top charter broker award for fifth year in a row!

Online PR News – 27-May-2011 – – Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has won the prestigious Air Cargo Charter Broker of the Year prize at the ACW World Air Cargo Awards for the fifth successive year.

International freight forwarders and cargo airlines have once again voted the global aircraft charter specialist as their favourite provider.

This year’s success continues Chapman Freeborn’s run of winning the accolade every year since it was established in 2007.

Russi Batliwala, Chapman Freeborn's CEO, collected the award on behalf of the company's worldwide offices at a ceremony in Munich.

He used the opportunity to thank his team and praise their efforts. Mr Batliwala said "People say a broker is not asset-based but that's not true – we have nearly 400 people and they are our assets. We are very, very proud of them. This is our fifth award out of five and it's a great message to send to our people."

Mark Middleton, Chapman Freeborn Singapore’s Director says “Winning for five times in a row is an amazing feat! This great achievement also acknowledges our professionalism and great relationship we have with international freight forwarders and cargo airlines worldwide.”

The latest award marks the end of another busy year for Chapman Freeborn.

In addition to the regular business of completing urgent and heavy lift cargo charter operations for freight forwarders and shippers, the company has been involved in responding to events around the world including crises in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Ivory Coast and Japan.

Thousands of tons of humanitarian cargo including food, medicines, temporary shelter and vehicles have been delivered worldwide for clients.

Elsewhere, Chapman Freeborn continues to expand its global coverage with the opening of a new office in Houston and strengthening its presence in Australasia and Scandinavia, as well as rolling out innovative new product lines including its specialist On Board Courier (OBC) service.

The ACW accolade completes a successful awards season for Chapman Freeborn after it was also recently named Air Charter Provider of the Year in Africa at the Air Cargo Africa 2011 awards in Nairobi, Kenya.

Chapman Freeborn has 32 offices in 22 countries and provided over 6,000 cargo and passenger aircraft charters last year, in addition to many ACMI, wet and dry aircraft lease arrangements.
