Alejandro Cañas to head Spain Erhardt Projects
Following the internationalisation and transformation of Erhardt Projects into an integrated and global project cargo company, it has made a decision to promote deputy manager Alejandro Cañas to the position of general manager Spain Erhardt Projects.
Cañas will now be heading the company’s consolidation and future development in Spain, tackling the major challenges ahead in the project cargo sector, together with the new and changing expectations of clients in his area of influence.
Cañas’ main task will be to promote and guarantee the consolidation and growth targets of Erhardt Projects in Spain over the coming years.
Chapman Freeborn expands in Africa
Chapman Freeborn has tripled its Africa team on the back of a 30 percent year-on-year increase in cargo revenues in the region from 2021 to 2023.
Sharon Vaz-Arab, part of Chapman Freeborn’s new regional management team, is heading up the development of its Africa product offering, as the charter broker looks to expand its footprint beyond South Africa, towards the whole of sub-Saharan Africa in 2023.
Chapman Freeborn is supporting the continued demand for oil and gas, energy, and automotive imports in the region with its increased short-term and medium-term block charters and the development of its Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance (ACMI) leasing product.
“We have an extremely talented team in Africa and my estimate is that if Chapman Freeborn’s Africa operations continue at this pace, we will need a much larger office by the year end,” Vaz-Arab said.
