Brigitte Gledhill

Brigitte Gledhill fell into the air cargo industry by chance back in 1996, when she spotted a Lufthansa Cargo management trainee position at London-Heathrow being advertised in The Guardian. She ticked all (two) boxes: over 18 and German-speaking, then embarked on an international career spanning more than two decades and covering every angle of air cargo from sales to handling, flight operations, marketing, claims, and product development. Self-employed as a journalist, copywriter, and DE-EN translator since 2018, she is a regular contributor to the free, weekly, air cargo niche-focused email newsletter, CargoForwarder Global.
