John Good Shipping has launched an airfreight division, John Good Air, headed up by Ed Clarke, to complement its sea and road services.
The air division will be based in Manchester with Clarke as airfreight manager. It will develop import and export services to and from all major UK airports including Manchester Airport and Heathrow Airport. At present, the company provides shipping services including freight forwarding, liner and port agency, haulage, warehousing and customs clearance.
John Good Shipping managing director, Seamus Jennings says: “We have been looking forward to establish ourselves in the airfreight industry for a while now. Airfreight is not new to us, however we felt that in order to meet our customers’ requirements and provide competitive rates, a separate division needed to be established.”
He continues: “We are extremely fortunate that we have been able to team up with Ed Clarke, a highly experienced and respected figure in the airfreight industry, and after a long time spent considering the various options, we can now look forward to stamping our mark on the airfreight industry.”
