IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG), has joined Neutral Air Partner (NAP) with the objective to grow its business and further develop cooperation in all areas relevant to the air cargo logistics sector.
The partnership will see IAG Cargo and NAP work together jointly in various initiatives to support small- and medium-sized forwarders.
At present, IAG Cargo operates across all key strategic markets including Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa, and the Americas.
Darren Peek, Head of Sales at IAG Cargo said, “Small businesses are a core part of the supply chain, and an important part of our business.”
“They play a vital role in our communities and I am delighted that we are partnering with NAP to provide support to the wider SME market.”
“We’re proud to partner with organisations like NAP to enable SME businesses to gain access to our extensive network, industry knowledge and specialised products, as well as our loyalty programme – FORWARD.REWARDS.”
“SME Forwarders and consolidators represent over 45 % of the global airfreight volumes and our network is comprised of leading and independent air cargo sales agents and consolidators worldwide,” said Christos Spyrou, CEO, NAP.
“Through our NAP Global Airline Partner Programme, we aim to significantly increase our cargo volumes to IAG Cargo, and to access cargo capacity on key trade lanes.”
“We are confident that working together with partners like IAG cargo will drive direct value to our global customer base.”
