Polar Air Cargo, LOT Polish and Swiss sign up with ground handler WFS in North America
May 05, 2017: Polar Air Cargo, LOT Polish Airlines and Swiss International Air Lines are the new airline customers for Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in North America.
In Cincinnati, WFS has been awarded a three-year contract to support Polar Air Cargo and its partners. In addition to freight acceptance, delivery, build-up and break-down services, the airline and its customers will benefit from the single point of data capture and 100 percent shipment visibility delivered by ePic, WFS’ online customer service portal.
The contract, which is to provide warehouse services for both Polar and its partner, DHL, will see WFS handle some 86,000 tonnes per annum for their two companies’ Boeing 747 and 767 freighter operations to and from the Ohio airport. Marking its entry into handling services in Cincinnati, WFS’ personnel are working from Polar’s 100,000 sq ft off-airport warehouse facility in the city.
WFS has recruited nearly 90 employees to serve the new contract. Members of the WFS teams in New York and Miami also relocated to Cincinnati to support the implementation process during the first weeks of the operation.
In Newark, LOT Polish Airlines – which recently appointed WFS in Los Angeles – has signed another contract for WFS to provide passenger, ramp and cargo services. The two-year agreement covers the airline’s seven Boeing 787 flights a week to Warsaw. In support of its seasonal services connecting San Diego and Zurich, operated by its daughter company Edelweiss Air, SWISS has signed a contract for WFS to provide cargo warehouse services for the next three years, commencing in June 2017.
