Chapman Freeborn and Swiss WorldCargo announce new on board courier partnership

As of July 1, global on board courier specialist Chapman Freeborn OBC GmbH is supporting Swiss WorldCargo with all hand-carry requirements through its worldwide office network.

Already an acknowledged global leader for care-intensive cargo services, the agreement will allow Swiss WorldCargo to expand its specialised product portfolio and offer solutions for hand-carry courier shipments worldwide.

Whether the consignment is a single document or 30 boxes of time-critical manufacturing parts, Chapman Freeborn’s OBC service provides transportation solutions tailored to clients’ specific requirements – with dedicated couriers accompanying shipments from pick up to delivery straight to the recipient.

The service will provide Swiss WorldCargo’s clients with a premium solution for urgent shipments and the ability to monitor the progress of their cargo at any time by using an online tracking system.

Chapman Freeborn OBC will benefit by working closely with one of the market’s leading airlines which has a network of some 120 destinations in over 80 countries – served by a fleet of 85 aircraft including Airbus A319, A320, A321, A330-300 and A340 types.

Carsten Volk, Managing Director of Chapman Freeborn OBC, said:

“We’re delighted to sign this OBC agreement with Swiss WorldCargo and we welcome the opportunity to present our services to their worldwide network. Leading suppliers involved in industries like automotive, energy and pharmaceutical rely on us on a daily basis, so working with an airline with such a strong reputation for customer service and operational excellence is an ideal fit.”
