TIACA member ECS Group is continuing to expand its network with the opening of an office in Porto (OPO) this summer.
The GSSA is reaffirming its European development strategy and its desire to offer its partners an increasingly close-knit network and global coverage across all markets.
“Opening an office in Portugal was a necessity in order to meet growing market demand on the Iberian peninsula, to offer even more options to our clients, and, of course, to continue our group’s development in Europe,” said Sauro Martinelli, Regional Manager Europe at ECS Group.
Based at Francisco Sá Carneiro airport, the ECS Group team, which is formed of three employees and led by Susana Pacheco, will be tasked with setting up the new entity and establishing a long-term presence for the group on the Portuguese market.
“Our on-site team is made up of highly qualified employees who are truly motivated by the challenges that setting up a new office brings. There is no doubt in my mind that they will give their very best and rise to the challenge,” added Sauro Martinelli, Regional Manager Europe at ECS Group.
Earlier this year ECS Chairman Bertrand Schmoll became the first General Sales and Service Agent (GSSA) representative to be elected to the TIACA Board.
TIACA’s leadership team has been rolling out a new vision for the Association, focusing on a forward-looking approach to representing, supporting, and informing every element of an efficient, modern, and unified air cargo industry.
