Brazilian GSSA BCS Air joins ECS Group

Brazilian general sales and service agent (GSSA) BCS Air has forged a partnership with the ECS Group network to provide major airlines in Latin America and the US with a full range of cargo outsourcing services.

The collaboration started on 7 June this year and it enables ECS Group to further grow its footprint in South American markets.

BCS Air has more than 20 years of experience in the air cargo industry. “We are very glad to have become part of ECS Group’s global network”, said chief operating officer BCS Air, Joao Luiz Ferreira. “The cooperation surely will create highly dynamic synergies between our enterprises and further strengthen our position in the Brazilian and American markets.”

“We are very proud to continually welcome the best talent from around the world into ECS Group”, adds ECS Group chairman, Bertrand Schmoll. “BCS Air has always been one of the most professional and successful providers of cargo outsourcing solutions in Brazil. Therefore, the acquisition is perfectly in line with our policy to support the world’s most proficient GSSAs with our powerful global infrastructure.”

With strong connections to the local air freight community, BCS Air offers GSSA services at Brazilian airports for airlines such as Aeromexico, Cargolux, IAG Cargo, Japan Airlines, TAAG, Turkish Airlines and Delta – including sales and marketing support to ground handling and charter services at competitive rates.

BCS Air customers particularly benefit from the company’s outstanding expertise in the handling of perishables, automotive components, and CAO services.

“The ECS Group and BCS Air have been closely cooperating for five years already,” said Schmoll. “Following in the footsteps of AVS GSA and Exp-Air Cargo, BCS Air has now chosen to join ECS Group. The integration of BCS into our network has been a logical step for our companies. We both share a future-oriented culture of innovation, and the expertise and best practices of BCS Air will be profitable for all partners within the Group.”

ECS Group has already successfully been working the markets in Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Columbia, and Argentina. The new partnership provides added value for ECS customers worldwide. It will help to expand and enhance services specifically in Brazil and Latin America and offer unique opportunities for further growth.
