You cannot mask that during these
lockdown times, Ingo Zimmer, CEO and his global team at ATC GSSA
are holding the relationships developed over the years across an
expanding roster of service partners "even closer," as
Ingo puts it.
Everybody is watching this wunderkind
company that has taken the spirit and innovation lead in the global
GSSA market with its compelling solutions and staff of professionally
trained and seasoned account executives, many who have served in
both the airline and freight forwarder role.
These days, without a doubt, of all
GSSA services it is exactly these words that have resonated across
company lines in the global GSSA landscape where as 2021 continues,
ATC is out front and pulling away.
“There is no secret sauce at
ATC,” Ingo declares, and no empty promises either, we add.
“It’s all about people
and service delivery with no excuses,” Ingo said.
“Every day ATC reminds our partners
that we never forget how important they are.
“Knowing what to expect is always
priority one in ATC service,” Ingo said.
As noted, ATC does not employ any
smoke and mirrors in its no-nonsense approach to GSSA.
“Our main priority of making
sure all of our service partners know what to expect, and driving
complete transparency during every part of the shipping process
employs the ATC will to succeed and the spirited involvement of
everyone on our team.
“That is the ATC coda as we
work our way back from the pandemic,” Ingo said.
“Our friendship and concern
has never slackened.”
On The Road To Morocco
“Take the case of our 28-year
successful co-operation with Royal Air Maroc Cargo.
“Royal Air Maroc Cargo is a
great service that punches above its weight in every effort.
“It is our job to make sure
that we continue to do our utmost to support
our service partnership, based on long held trust and the belief
that the aircargo agent is the ultimate judge of how we are doing
as service providers.
“We never forget how important
our partners in the supply chain, the airline and the aircargo agent
are to our success and it’s going the extra mile in our effort,
that makes the most difference in the long run.
“In the case of Royal Air Maroc,
our partnership started with the contract for Germany and over the
years because of the good performance, Asia, Argentina, Brazil,
Austria and Canada have been added. ”
It’s Like That All
“You have to think about where
you want to be and how you like to be treated when approaching this
industry if you expect to be around for any length of time,”
ATC Always Takes Care
“August has arrived, and again
this year like the last will be a new experience, sure that the
high summer skies may elicit the desire to kick back and enjoy the
hazy, crazy, lazy days of summer 2021, but with COVID-19 still in
somewhat the pole position regarding air cargo gatherings and how
we do business we will continue to double down our efforts to stay
very close to our service partners.
“Our staff of seasoned energetic
veterans are bringing forward a new class of cargo executive capability
and vitality to the GSSA business.
“Our company in just three short
decades is admired all over the world.
“Not for nothing is ATC “Always
Take Care” recognized in 2021, as a standard in the world.”
The Tiffany Of GSSA
There is much more behind the fast
rising “Tiffany GSSA” known today as ATC.
“We create a “can-do”
atmosphere for the air cargo package as part of our agreements,
offering carriers some refuge and one less thing to worry about.
“ATC is, in reality, a company
that has emerged in the service quarter serving up a mix of both
passenger and freighter airlines.
“Right now despite the success
of air cargo during the pandemic we note that all of our carriers
are remarkably more cost-conscious than they were even just a few
“In other words as we move along
in 2021 every single cargo flight is carefully scrutinized,”
Ingo said, adding:
“In some ways the impossible
COVID scourge has made us better and more aware of the great service
we are entrusted to deliver.”
Hey Friend Do It Again
We are wondering after all is said
and done, after 18 months of operating behind a mask at home and
away from the familiar, what has changed. And would Ingo choose
an air cargo career again?
“Given another chance to choose
a career, of course it would be air cargo.
“This is the most exciting job
you can have.
“You are in aviation, the cargo
people are straightforward, and your playground is the world.
“There are business friends
everywhere, and every day in so many places you can see the results
of your work.
“When I began my career, I was
selling, I was booking, I was doing the load plan.
“And when the cargo docs were
handed to the aircraft crew and the cargo holds were closed, I often
stayed at the ramp and watched as the aircraft departed.
“I knew I did my job, but I
also realized those planes were going to places yet to be discovered,
and that drove my imagination.
“Now my job description is different,
but to me air cargo is still exciting.
“I can endorse cargo as a career,
and would love to see my sons grow up and become air cargo specialists.”
Too Much Change Is Not Enough
“The pandemic has been terrible
for the world. It has stretched resources and imagination to the
“Everyone, in my view, knows
and expects much more from air cargo than in the past.
“The pandemic has both made
cargo famous as savior of the airlines and also the preferred way
to ship vital commodities at once to people in need the world over.
“Images of vaccines arriving
to arrest the COVID and save lives all over the world have been
“No doubt top of the list moving
ahead in 2021 and beyond will be digitization, although we have
heard that call before.”
Double Down Upping Services
““Now up and down the
line at ATC, we are working to up our game to become the preferred
GSSA choice in the world.
““In fact, we can’t
wait for tomorrow because we think air cargo looks better every
day,” Ingo Zimmer declared.
