Handling agents – the cornerstone of air cargo

Acknowledged as being one of the backroom operations that go to make up the complexity of aviation air cargo, a Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) company has been highlighted for its efforts.

Coming in for special praise by multi-national integrator ECS Group, is Global Services Handling (GSH), a French air cargo handling company.

Despite the difficulties GSH is facing in this period of unprecedented crisis, ECS Group has emphasized the essential nature of handling and handling teams, without whom air freight forwarding would quite simply be impossible.

"As in all sectors, we need to reorganize the way we work because of the crisis, with one further difficulty: remote working isn’t possible with goods handling. Our staff levels are down by around 25% but we are continuing to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are 100% operational thanks to our extremely hard-working employees. Our priority is still to make sure that cargo leaves and arrives in total safety,” noted Pierre Perez, GSH’s managing director.

Pierre Perez describes “an amazing sense of team spirit, togetherness and solidarity” among his colleagues. “We’re all pulling together – we know that our work is essential in order to transport goods and keep the local and global economy running. Helping to save lives by transporting medical products is also a real source of motivation.”
