Worldwide Flight Services has partnered with Transglobal Cargo Centre in Kenya to take over the full management, operation and business development of its cargo terminal at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
Effective June 1, Transglobal Cargo Centre now operates under the Africa Flight Services brand, the WFS division responsible for handling activities across Africa. WFS operates at 120 major airports in 20 countries.
The Transglobal Cargo Centre opened in 2007, and in 2013, it handled 52,500 tons of cargo.
“We are delighted to be working with a professional partner in Transglobal, which is in line with our commitment to provide our airline clients with a worldwide network of expertise in handling services,” Barry Nassberg, WFS' chief operating officer, said in a statement. “Transglobal will also benefit from joining the WFS network in terms of being part of global customer agreements and having access to our operating and quality standards, and training. The cargo terminal … offers great potential for growth at a time when the Kenyan economy is forecasting an annual GDP increase of 5.7 percent in 2014 following its healthy 4.7 percent growth in 2013.”
