Chapman subsidiary makes animal transport global
Chapman Freeborn Airchartering’s subsidiary Intradco Cargo Services will extend its animal transport operations on a worldwide basis.
Chapman Freeborn – which completed the acquisition of UK-based Intradco in February – Is initiating a worldwide growth strategy following the integration of the company into its business portfolio over the last three months.
Intradco is an equine, livestock and exotics transport specialist. The company will now use Chapman Freeborn’s network of over 30 offices worldwide to introduce its services to new markets.
"We’re delighted to welcome Intradco into the Chapman Freeborn group and see it as an ideal fit for our business,” Russi Batliwala, CEO of Chapman Freeborn, said. “Our global offices have seen a tremendous increase in livestock and bloodstock requests since Intradco joined us. Their niche expertise and own equipment has made them a market leader for animal transport services.”
In the highly-specialised field of bloodstock movements, Intradco will target potential growth regions around the world, ranging from its base in the UK to racing and breeding industries in North America, South America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia.
“This is an exciting development for Intradco that we believe sits perfectly with our approach – it just makes sense,” Eddie McMullen, managing director of Intradco, said. “The initial focus will be on promoting our services in previously untapped markets by making the most of Chapman Freeborn’s global office coverage and local market knowledge. There are exciting times ahead.”
