Red Star Express Plc, one of Nigeria’s foremost logistics providers, has commenced its General Sales Agent (GSA) services with foremost airline, AZMAN Air Services Limited. Under this partnership, the company will be connecting passenger goods and packages from one airport to another using the airline’s carriers. Cargo goods can now be transported, in a short space of time, to various destinations within Nigeria, including Port Harcourt, Kaduna, Kano, and Abuja.

According to the Group Managing Director, Dr. Sola Obabori, the new development is in line with the company’s expansion drive, especially in the cargo transport and consolidation business. “We have identified cargo consolidation as a key area to extend our business into. We commenced the partnership with AERO Contractors in June and now we have AZMAN on board as well. Discussions are ongoing with other airlines, especially the international airlines, to achieve similar outcomes. It is our ambition to become the leading provider, especially in this aspect of the logistics industry.”
