  • Chapman Freeborn exec: “The last few years have seen our business go from strength to strength in Poland.”
  • Katowice has an abundance of manufacturing industries and a growing reputation for business services.
  • Chapman Freeborn specializes in the charter and lease of aircraft for freight forwarders, corporations, and governments.

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering is increasing its investment in Poland with the launch of a new office in Katowice to meet increased demand for its specialist aviation services.

The group—which currently employs over 80 people in its Warsaw office—will target further expansion for its products, including cargo and passenger aircraft charters, on board couriers, and centralized load control services via its Air Dispatch CLC subsidiary.

“The last few years have seen our business go from strength to strength in Poland and we believe there is a great opportunity to further develop our unique aviation services in this market,” said Alex Berry, group sales and marketing director. “Katowice has an abundance of manufacturing industries and a growing reputation for business services. The opportunities to expand our specialist charter and OBC services are significant.”

Chapman Freeborn has appointed Daniel Walaszek as general manager for its new Katowice business, with responsibility for expanding the company’s charter and on board courier (OBC) services in the local market, as well as eastern Europe and the Baltic states.

In a career spanning 15 years, Walaszek has worked in a variety of management roles for companies in the logistics sector. His most recent position before joining Chapman Freeborn was as special services operations manager for TNT Express Poland, where he oversaw time-critical cargo projects on a worldwide basis.

Chapman Freeborn was formed in the UK in 1973 and has a global network of over 30 locations around the world. The company specializes in the charter and lease of aircraft for a wide ranging client base including freight forwarders, multinational corporations, governments, humanitarian agencies and a host of industries around the globe.

Chapman Freeborn subsidiary Air Dispatch CLC is the world’s leading provider of load control services. The company currently operates two state-of-the-art centralized load control (CLC) centers located in Prague and Warsaw. Its third facility is scheduled to open in early 2016.
