French ground handling giant WFS throughput leaps 17pc in US


French ground-handling giant Worldwide Flight Services' (WFS) cargo volume increased 17 per cent year on year in the first seven months of 2017 across its 60 US locations.
Paris-based WFS has won 37 new airline contracts during the period as well as 10 contract renewals from existing customers, reported London's Air Cargo News.
Contracts included agreements with Avianca Cargo in Miami, Atlas Air/Polar Air Cargo in Cincinnati, and AirBridgeCargo Airlines in Los Angeles as well as China Airlines in Chicago, LOT Polish in Newark and Los Angeles, and Swiss International Air Lines in San Diego.
The company has also integrated Consolidated Aviation Services (CAS) following its acquisition by WFS at the start of 2016. CAS officially rebranded as WFS earlier this year, making WFS the largest cargo handler in North America.
"The air cargo industry is experiencing an uptick and we feel that we are in a good position to accommodate this growth with our current operations," said WFS vice president Ray Jetha.
"As predicted, we will see an increase in the e-commerce market and this will certainly put some pressure on regular air cargo shipments.
"We are ready to take on this challenge and have put the necessary infrastructure in place in order to minimise the impact and also take advantage of the opportunities we expect to be created," Mr Jetha said.
