     They just completed a giant of a trade show in São Paulo, Brazil on March 2 called Intermodal South America.
     This year the annual event regained post COVID luster as a most important yearly transportation gathering.
     For people attending from countries all over the world to Brazilians, that said goodbye with a smile and the wish, “see ya in Bahia” where the Samba was born, this one was a really big show.
     For ATC Aviation, the best, most imaginative and fastest growing GSSA, Intermodal South America 2023 was an absolute humdinger; “a super event show for ATC Aviation,” said Mark Thiermann, Regional Director South America.
     For Mark Thiermann a gracious, inclusive good guy if there ever was one, he has the pictures to prove it.
     “We brought in part of our ATC South America team and as usual, our booth was crowded with airline clients, freight forwarders and friends, who also remembered that we were the only GSSA with a booth in the post-Covid Intermodal show of last year, which is a proof of our faith, love and commitment to South America markets and clients.
     “This time we showcased our regionally represented airlines Aeromexico, Aerolineas Argentinas, American Airlines, Air Mauritius, Cabo Verde Airlines, Cargolux Airlines, EL AL Airlines, GOL Linhas Aereas, ITA Airways, Korean Airlines, LAS Cargo, Royal Air Maroc, Saudia Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, as well as Chapman Freeborn, and it was great to meet some of these long lasting airline partners at the show.
     “We were also amazed to see the tremendous interest from new airlines who, in what appears to be a challenging year, approached us with the intention to reinforce their sales and promotion teams in the countries where we are strong in Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. So we expect that our business will increase during this year.
     “This goes hand-in-hand with our growth plan in the region with our local Brazilian partner GOL, with whom we celebrated 16 years of an excellent business relationship.
     “We are currently expanding GOL’s sales to Argentina, with the recent opening of Aeroparque (AEP) operations that will allow us to start sales this month to/from this station to GOL’s network, and other routes like Chile and Peru to be opened by year-end. We are also working closely with GOL to develop international sales for the newly incorporated B737-800BCF freighters.
     “We have recently signed an agreement with Copa Airlines to represent them in Guyana (GEO).
     “This is an interesting new market for ATC Aviation, so we are working closely with our exclusive sub-GSSA to develop this market together, bringing in their local experience and ATC’s knowledge of the GSSA business, and Cargo Management tools, including our COS system, BI capabilities and data management. Copa Airlines is a new airline in our portfolio, so we are very excited to start sales soon and expand our cooperation to other countries.
     “In spite of the Ukraine war and global inflation affecting most of the markets in our region, we do expect to continue ATC’s growth in Central and South America, and the Caribbean during 2023.”
