ACP continues to grow its Australian and New Zealand operation with the re-appointment of its GSA contract with Etihad Cargo to now also include Brisbane.
Effective from 1 October 2016, ACP will extend its current representation in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland to include Brisbane. After a thorough and comprehensive bidding process Etihad Cargo appointed ACP as the company to partner with to support the Etihad Cargo team across all major freight hubs in Australia and New Zealand.
ACP Worldwide Regional Director Australia & New Zealand Ross Di Lizio said: ‘We are delighted that Etihad Cargo has chosen to grow the relationship with ACP, which started in 2010. We now have the opportunity to work with Colin and his team to continue providing success and growth for Etihad Cargo throughout all our offices on a truly national basis.’
Commenting on the ACP appointment, Etihad Cargo Manager Australia & New Zealand Colin Nicholls said: ‘Our longstanding partnership with ACP Worldwide has been a key factor in Etihad Cargo’s success in the Australian and New Zealand markets. Together we have been able to provide shippers with swift, reliable movement of their cargo to markets around the world.
‘The addition of Brisbane to ACP’s representation of Etihad Cargo means our customers will receive the same seamless service right across Australia.’
Etihad Cargo provides freight capacity across all of its services ex Australia, which includes two daily services from Melbourne with Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft, 11 weekly from Sydney on Boeing 777s and Airbus A380s, daily Boeing 787 services ex Brisbane and Perth, with connectivity to the Etihad Airways global network via its Abu Dhabi hub.
Delighted with the appointment, Ross Di Lizio added: ‘I am so proud of our strong team in this region which now also includes the recent addition of two experienced and knowledgeable staff members, Dave Harris and Jayne Norsworthy. I am very confident that they will provide a real positive profile for ACP and Etihad Airways in the Queensland freight market.’
