RB, ALSB seal cargo partnership deal

ROYAL Brunei Airlines (RB) has signed a worldwide cargo partnership agreement with Air Logistics Sdn Bhd (ALSB), the company said in a press release yesterday.

RB said that the agreement was signed last Friday with ALSB, a joint venture company between the Brunei International Air Cargo Centre (BIACC) and Air Logistics Networks Ltd, which is a subsidiary of Air Logistics Group, a cargo general sales and service agent (GSSA) based in the UK.

The agreement was signed between RB deputy chairman Dermot Mannion and chief commercial & planning officer, Karam Chand; and ALSB directors Stephen Dawkins and Ariffin Hj Emran — both of whom are also Air Logistics Group chief operating officer and BIACC managing director, respectively.

RB said the partnership "will be in full force in three months and will activate Air Logistics Group's global network of 71 offices for the worldwide sales and marketing of RB cargo capacity.

"Under the agreement, ALSB will also manage cargo handling activities at all destinations on the RB network," the press release said.

The partnership, RB said, will also significantly boost its global cargo presence and distribution capabilities while at the same time, positioning Brunei as a growing transhipment and distribution centre for air cargo transportation in the region.

RB added that the company will benefit from the most comprehensive global GSSA network available in the cargo industry .

"There is plenty of scope to leverage significant growth in cargo activity from RB's network of 14 destinations and current projected annual throughput of 30,500 tonnes," said the national flag carrier.

"The company is proud to be partners with ALSB, which is an important step in Brunei's growth as a centre of regional and international cargo activity," said RB's Chand.

Meanwhile, ALSB director Dawkins, praised RB for its understanding of the cargo business.

"It appreciates how two strong partners linked under ALSB...can create a comprehensive, transparent network adding substantial revenue and immediately decreasing costs while RB maintains its reputable identity on the world cargo stage," he was quoted as saying in the press release.

Ariffin concurred, saying that the collaboration will add value to the business in providing a more efficient air cargo net-work, which is supported by experienced manpower and the latest ground handling management system.

He also said that BIACC's 12-year experience in cargo handling has given them knowledge and understanding to ensure an efficient way of handling any types of cargo.
