ECS Group said the launch of its Globe Air Cargo (GAC) Korea will boost its "strategic foothold" in the fast-growing Asian market.


"The latest country addition signifies a key strategic milestone in the Group's network expansion plans which see the Far East, particularly Korea, China, and Japan, as having the greatest dynamic potential," the global GSSA provider said.


The Globe Air Cargo branch in Seoul, Korea, launched on November 23,  2021is ECS' first physical representation in Korea. 


"Over the past few years, we have strongly focused on intensifying our presence in the Far East, both north and south; a highly dynamic region with a great deal of potential, and one that our key business partners such as DHL are also driving," said Adrien Thominet, executive chairman.


"Our ECS Group pledge is to offer the strongest Asian network with unlimited connections, and yet, until recently, Korea was missing from our extensive network. I am pleased to say, the first six months of operation have already shown that a local presence on the Korean market is highly welcomed, and we look forward to seeing GAC Korea grow its business in this well-yielding and promising market," Thominet added.


For his part, H.E. Shin, CEO of Globe Air Cargo Korea noted that GAC Korea is ideally located with offices both in the city and at the airport that offer "bespoke GSA services" in particular to local airlines.


"We see that the Korean market is keen to learn more about our 'think local, act global' business philosophy, which offers local business access to the global ECS Group network. There are many more GSA opportunities to be explored here," Shin said.
