ECS Group launches Globe Air Cargo branch in Seoul
With the launch, ECS Group has secured a strategic foothold in the fast-growing Asian market
With the inauguration of its Globe Air Cargo branch in Seoul, Korea, on 23 November 2021, ECS Group established its first physical representation in Korea. The latest country addition signifies a key strategic milestone in the Group's network expansion plans which sees the Far East, particularly Korea, China, and Japan, as having the greatest dynamic potential.
Adrien Thominet, Executive Chairman, ECS Group states, "Over the past few years, we have strongly focused on intensifying our presence in the Far East, both north and south; a highly dynamic region with a great deal of potential, and one that our key business partners such as DHL are also driving. Our ECS Group pledge is to offer the strongest Asian network with unlimited connections, and yet, until recently, Korea was missing from our extensive network. I am pleased to say, the first six months of operation have already shown that a local presence on the Korean market is highly welcomed, and we look forward to seeing GAC Korea grow its business in this well-yielding and promising market."
H.E. Shin, CEO of Globe Air Cargo Korea, "GAC Korea is ideally located with offices both in the city and at the airport, and with our experienced team, we offer bespoke GSA services in particular to local airlines. We see that the Korean market is keen to learn more about our 'think local, act global' business philosophy, which offers local business access to the global ECS Group network. There are many more GSA opportunities to be explored here."
ECS Group is the world leader in GSSA business, serving airlines. In 2021 ECS Group carried over 1,200,000 tonnes on behalf of the airlines it represents and, in this way, contributed to their growth and development on the international stage in the air cargo sector.
