One of the UK’s biggest business groups, Logistics UK, has crowned CharterSync the Air Business of the Year at its annual Logistics Awards, held at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge on December 9 2021.
CharterSync, founded by two airline pilots with a passion for aviation, connects urgent charter requests from freight forwarders directly to aircraft operators via an intelligent platform that provides speed and transparency to a highly complex market. Its advanced technology – available via the web or app – offers forwarders solutions in under three minutes, a significant reduction compared to the industry standard of 25-30 minutes.
David Wells, chief executive at Logistics UK comments: “This year has been critical for air cargo, with factors such as Brexit, COVID-19 and shipping disruption continuing to affect the sector. CharterSync is a very well-deserved winner and truly represents the best of the best. As a company it transforms the way freight forwarders and airlines work, while reducing costs and driving efficiencies. The judges were particularly impressed with the incredible advantages gained in terms of pricing transparency, speed and access to documentation for all freight forwarders using this newly developed digital air cargo platform.”
