Oman Air Cargo has signed an agreement for ECS Group to be its sales partner in the Benelux region from April 2017.
According to ECS, the contract will be serviced by Globe Air Cargo, a subsidiary of ECS Group.
“We are delighted that Oman Air has chosen Globe Air Cargo,” said Mariet Zollner, managing director of Globe Air Cargo Netherlands. “We are confident that our customers will support Oman Air due to their customer-friendly approach and the opportunity its network offers to them. Oman Air wants to enhance and develop its cargo business in Europe and ECS Group will proactively support Oman Air with right resources to achieve their plans.”
Under the agreement, ECS, through GAC, will represent Oman Air Cargo as an offline sales partner, coordinate the trucking and handling of cargo from Amsterdam and Brussels to the carrier’s online stations in Frankfurt, London and Paris. Oman Air Cargo is targeting customers interested in dedicated ULDs to Muscat and other destinations across its network.
“Oman Air Cargo is excited for the new partnership with Globe Air Cargo,” said Mohammed Al Musafir, senior vice president of commercial cargo at Oman Air. “This will give us an excellent opportunity to be represented in the Benelux region through a strong local partner. Oman Air Cargo is committed to an aggressive expansion plan, and the Benelux region is of interest to us as we look at expanding our network to better serve our clients worldwide.”
Cargo generated from the region will predominantly consist of industrial goods, but as part of the new contract, GAC will also help Oman Air develop its special cargo business such as perishables and pharmaceuticals, according to ECS.
