The acquisition of the business of
Imperial Air Cargo (IAC) is the biggest
deal BidAir Cargo has struck in 15
years. IAC brings with them three
contracted Boeing 737-200F freighters
which we are using for our overnight
service. This is significant because
we now have a comprehensive range
of daytime and overnight services to
satisfy the total needs of our market.
Couriers have been pressing us for the
extra convenience of a one-stop-shop.
The logical solution was the acquisition
of IAC, with whom we already had a
successful working relationship. After
extensive discussions, we made an offer
for the business which was accepted.
We then had to wait for the Competition
Commission to approve the acquisition
which has now been done.
