Pemco World Air Services named Innovator of the Year for B737-700 FlexCombi during the Freighters World Conference in Chicago.
Roger Hailey, editor of Air Cargo News and Freighters World spoke at the awards dinner during the Freighters World conference in Chicago, the 17th such conference hosted by the magazine. He also awarded the top prize in each category including: Best Freight Operation, Best Charter Logistics Project, Innovator of the Year, and Newsmaker of the Year.
The category Innovator of the Year, with finalists from four companies, recognized original thinking and game-changing ideas from across the entire freighter supply chain, judged by success within the target market and a collaborative approach.
The winner was PEMCO World Air Services, with its Boeing 737-700 passenger to freighter conversion FlexCombi, a product that meets a growing need for cargo uplift supported by small numbers of passengers.
Said Hailey: “When we decided to launch these awards, we were aware of a gap in the market, a failure to recognize and reward excellence in the freighter sector of the air cargo business.
“Well tonight we closed that gap and I am proud to say that these specially-tailored awards encouraged a large number of quality entrants from all sectors of the industry.”
Other category winners include:
Best Freight Operation, Cargolux; Best Charter Logistics, Etihad Cargo; News Maker of the Year, Jeff Bezos from Amazon. For more details>> http://www.aircargonews.net/news/airline/freighter-operator/single-view/news/a-night-of-the-freighter-stars-in-chicago.html
