IAG signs freight network deal

[ November 6, 2012   //   ]

IAG Cargo – British Airways World Cargo and Iberia Cargo’s single business unit – has signed a deal with Global Logistics Network (GLN), IAG hopes the agreement with the 421 company-strong, 125 country network will help it increase market share among small- to medium-sized agents. IAG also promises “highly attractive offers to associated freight forwarders” along with an enhanced customer loyalty programme. GLN president, Roy Stapleton, said: that few carriers “have the forward vision to embrace a network with our potential.” Founded in 2003, US-headquartered GLN claims that its combined annual revenues of US$ 8.7 billion, 21,127 staff and over 5 million shipments per year is larger than many multi-national forwarders and integrators.
