CharterSync, the digital innovator for charter operations, has become the fifth member of CargoTech, marking a significant milestone in the air cargo charter industry.
Founded by former cargo charter brokers and commercial pilots, Ed Gillett and Simon Watson, CharterSync has emerged as a leader in digitalisation and operational efficiency.
CharterSync became the world’s first air cargo charter company to introduce a fully integrated digital end-to-end booking process and management system for freight forwarders, garnering widespread recognition.
The partnership with CargoTech, a renowned player in the cargo technology space, marks a new chapter for CharterSync and presents an exciting opportunity for forwarders and airlines to optimise their charter processes while maintaining the highest service standards.
CargoTech’s expanding network now encompasses experts from all segments of the cargo industry, allowing for comprehensive solutions tailored to individual customer requirements.
CharterSync will help the group unlock a wealth of synergies and collaborative opportunities with other CargoTech members. One such example is the integration of Wiremind Cargo’s SkyPallet within CharterSync’s solution, a move that promises to streamline operations and enhance customer experience.
Cedric Millet, president of CargoTech, said: “CargoTech aims at providing the most relevant digital solution to every cargo business process. What we were missing until now, was an expert for air cargo charter operations to drive the much-needed digital transformation in this segment.
“Since launching in 2019, CharterSync has built an innovative, tech-informed, and fresh thinking global air cargo charter business from the ground up and gained a well-deserved reputation as an industry innovator at the forefront of the next generation of air charter.
“It was clear from the first time we talked at the IATA World Cargo Symposium in London last year, and again at the Air Cargo Forum in Miami a few months later, that CargoTech and CharterSync were a perfect symbiosis to remove manual pain points from air cargo charter operations and deliver best-in-class digital transformation in their stead.”
Ed Gillett, co-founder of CharterSync, said: “Our growth journey is proof that we are driving innovation throughout our platform and services, and we are delighted to be joining CargoTech.
“Being part of the CargoTech group inspires us to think bigger, reach higher, and remain committed to delivering exceptional value and transforming the air cargo charter industry.
“Enabling our clients to fly sustainably has been at the forefront of our strategy since we launched in 2019. CargoTech and CharterSync share the same sustainability commitment and mindset.
“Joining the group allows us all to work collaboratively to reduce CO2 emissions and to play a crucial and powerful lobbying force for change.”
