Brazil Wings, the Panalpina Charter Network service offering scheduled main deck capacity to South America from the US with two weekly flights, has completed its first year of operation.
Gustavo Paschoa, responsible for sales and marketing at Panalpina Brazil, said, “Since the service launched a year ago, the most popular cargo has been high-tech products, heavy machines and equipment for agriculture, chemicals as well as aerospace and consumer goods.”
With Brazil Wings, Panalpina offers clients a number of things such as full capacity control, high frequency, cargo handling by its own team, customs clearance and delivery to final destination in Brazil. At Panalpina’s US gateway in Huntsville, Alabama, Brazilian staff coordinate shipments destined for Brazil. According to James Beck, responsible for Panalpina’s operations at Huntsvill, “This makes communication with customers, authorities and subcontractors in Brazil much easier and adds an extra layer of quality and trust.”
