Logistics UK crowned broker CharterSync Air Business of the Year at its annual Logistics Awards in London on 9 Decemb (main pictures)er.

The company, founded by two airline pilots, 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.

Logistics UK chief executive, David Wells, commented: “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.”

PD Ports took the Water Business of the Year, presented by Multimodal event director, Robert Jervis (pictured, below).

David Wells said it played a critical role in facilitating the nation’s trade and throughout the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping vital supply chains moving and supporting the communities in which it operates. It also worked tirelessly to support the successful Teesside freeport bid.

The Logistics Awards 2021 recognise and celebrate the companies and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the logistics and supply industry over the past 12 months and who excel in their fields.
