On Tuesday 8th November 2022, we won ‘The Technology Innovation Award’ at the Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards, hosted in London.
The awards are a place to celebrate the resilience, innovation and creativity showcased by the UK and the business community, attracting a huge variety of businesses, from start-ups to established powerhouses – the Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards are one of the biggest, most competitive and lucrative awards in the UK.
The Technology Innovation award specifically focuses on businesses using innovative technology to drive growth and those paving the way for the tech revolution, enabling people to work smarter and more effectively in a now digital-first environment. This award recognises and celebrates the businesses leading the charge in this space using technology to meet business challenges and solve problems.
CharterSync is a digital disrupter in the air cargo charter industry, and our technology is significantly improving the industry the freight forwarders and airlines across the world by introducing a faster, smarter and more streamlined way to book air cargo charters in one easy-to-use system.
Our win points to the critical role the air cargo sector played during the pandemic as a lifeline for society, delivering critical medical supplies across the globe and keeping international supply chains open.
Our entry into the awards outlined our ability to significantly speed up the air cargo charter process during the pandemic. We quickly and efficiently delivered and distributed COVID-19 test kits and essential personal protective equipment (PPE) from China into the UK, demonstrating our value as a vital link in the supply chain and global recovery.
CharterSync also supports the UK automotive industry by accelerating time-critical supply chains for the major vehicle manufacturers and OEMs. It uses intuitive digital technology to match utilised aircraft capacity and optimise delivery times, minimising delays for goods moving intra-Europe and across the Channel.
Ed Gillett, co-founder, and director, CharterSync, says, “CharterSync was founded based on our belief that the air freight market was being held back by slow, outmoded, manual legacy booking systems and that digital transformation could unleash the sector’s potential. It’s a real honour to have won the Technology Innovation Award, which truly celebrates exactly what we set out to achieve in launching CharterSync.”
We’re thrilled to have won such a prestigious award, and are really looking forward to 2023 and beyond!
