Aero Africa launches in Morocco to operate as control tower and centralized service centre

MOROCCOAviation logistics provider Aero Africa has opened a new regional office in Casablanca Morocco.

The new office will look after the group’s interest in the region, operating as a control tower and centralized service centre in North Africa for its overseas partners and clients.

The new team will focus in promoting Aero Africa’s digital airfreight portal, developing BSA scheduled consolidations from Asia to North Africa, and to providing innovative air cargo solutions & value-added services to the North African freight & logistics community.

Aero Africa has already launched earlier this year neutral BSA scheduled consolidations, providing competitive airfreight wholesale rates from Asia, EU and the UK to the Southern African markets.

“With the accelerated economic growth in North Africa, and the matching increase in automotive, pharma and other logistics activities from direct trade with Far East as well as the world, it has become critical in providing the logistics and aviation sector with a tailor-made simplified neutral air cargo solution, supported by a secure financial transacting platform,” Nina Carcat, Network Solutions Manager said.

“With our own control centers across Asia, Europe, and key African gateways, as well through selected trusted air cargo professionals in each African airport, we offer bespoke cost-effective solutions for Africa to the logistics and aviation community.

“This includes regional freighter feeder & RFS services, freight collect, A2D, DDP, neutral break-bulk, time critical, project air cargo, as well as final mile solutions, including services to remote difficult to reach destinations, all through Aero Africa’s single point of contact, control, and management.”

Meanwhile, Aero Africa expanded its management team with the appointment of two specialists. Joey Xu joins the company as director airfreight Asia, which is a newly created role.

Xu, based in China, will be responsible for the overall airfreight development of the group in Asia with focus on procurement with carriers and optimising the company’s neutral scheduled airfreight consolidations from Asia to Africa.

She will also assist the business development team to promote its African solutions to the Asean freight forwarding and aviation community.

Prior to joining Aero Africa, she worked as regional airfreight manager and head of air freight for M&M, On Time Express and Shipco Transport.

Gary Tobias joins the company as regional operations manager, a role in which he will be responsible for the regional airfreight import and cross-border operations of Aero Africa.

Tobias started in the wholesale industry working at CFR Freight SA (Pty) with airfreight exports and airfreight imports. After a few years of climbing the ranks, he was offered an opportunity to run the Cape Town airfreight operations as the operations supervisor in August 2019.

He has since relocated from Cape Town to Johannesburg where he is now based to assist the regional development of Aero Africa.
