Priority Freight has enhanced its operations in the heart of mainland Europe by setting up a new emergency airfreight department at its office in Willich, Germany.
The upgraded office – located less than 25 kilometres from Düsseldorf International Airport – has been fitted with Priority’s tracking and IT systems, which it says will improve speed and reliability of airfreight traffic movements.
The bespoke, cloud-based IT system provides real-time tracking of deliveries, route mapping and automated processing and handling of documentation – and integrates securely with clients’ business software.
Priority Freight managing director, Neal Williams says: “By opening a specialist airfreight office, we are now fully-equipped to manage the increased demands of our German and international clients’ requirements for global express airfreight solutions to and from Germany and the rest of the world.
“In addition to strengthening our airfreight services managed at our London Heathrow and Madrid Airport control towers, the investment reinforces our commitment to the German market and growing our business in the heart of Europe.”
Priority Freight has hired Bernd Thewissen to oversee development of the new emergency airfreight operations in Willich. Bernd brings a wealth of airfreight experience to the company from his time at DHL Danzas Air & Ocean, Hartrodt and Geodis.
