Perishable Movements Ltd (PML) has appointed Gustavo Mundel into the newly created role of charter freight manager. He joins the business with a solid track record in chartering airfreight having worked on both sides of the business, acting for airlines as well as operating as an independent charter broker. Most recently, Mundel worked as the regional business development manager for an Antonov-124 aircraft carrier specialising in outsized cargo. Prior to this he was the director of global sales and business development for a private air charter provider, a role which was preceded by spending almost eight years with two major aircraft charter specialists.
A graduate in Aviation Business Management, the new appointment is indicative of a milestone for both parties: since this is the first time that Mundel has worked directly for a logistics company; while for PML the Charter Freight Manager position represents an exciting extension of in-house resources.
Speaking about the decision to invest in a dedicated charter freight resource, PML sales director Nick Finbow commented: “These are certainly challenging times for any logistics business both in terms of the coronavirus pandemic but also given the uncertainties associated with Brexit and the potential for additional restrictions to be imposed on the movement of goods from one country to another.
“PML is committed to maintaining its best in class service for the transfer of perishable and refrigerated cargo. The company’s reputation for excellence is based on its ability to identify the optimum supply chain routes for its customers and with airfreight representing an increasingly attractive proposition, we are keen to bring in specialist expertise to always ensure access to the optimum air trade lanes.”
