Chapman Freeborn makes the International Track 200 alongside travel agents and logistics providers

This week the Sunday Times released its International Track 200 – a league table of Britain’s private firms with the fastest growing overseas sales.

The challenging state of the world economy has impacted both the travel industry and logistics industry over the last couple of years – so it’s a very positive sign to see several companies from these sectors appearing on the list.

Chapman Freeborn was ranked 169th after seeing growing overseas demand for aircraft charter services (cargo charters, private jet charter services and commercial air charters for group travel).

The global coverage of the company also expanded in the last 12 months including the opening of a new office in Melbourne – making Chapman Freeborn the first international air charter broker to establish its own presence in Australia.

Elsewhere, UK-based travel firms that featured in the 2012 league table include travel agents such Travel Counsellors, Key Travel and Jac Travel.  International logistics providers making the grade include Woodland Group, Seko Logistics and Online Group.

The Sunday Times reports that the 200 companies in the league table generated combined international sales of £9 billion – more than a third of their total sales.

Well done to all the companies featured in this year’s International Track 200.
