8020 welcomes two new global transport tech clients

We are excited to welcome and announce two new clients to the 8020 family. Award-winning air cargo charter business CharterSync, and advanced revenue operating system developer FLYR Labs. Both companies have appointed 8020 on a retained basis to handle global PR briefs.

Following a period of unprecedented growth in 2021, CharterSync has appointed 8020 to strengthen its position in the marketplace as it eyes global expansion in 2022. In 2021, CharterSync achieved a Q4 operating profit up 260% compared to the three previous quarters combined. This year, trading has started even more robustly, with the month of January delivering the same level of sales as the whole of 2021.

Simon Watson, co-founder and director of CharterSync, says: “As a leading digital air cargo charter business, we have already set the stage for global expansion. 8020 has a great reputation in aviation PR and digital marketing, bringing deep sector insight as well as creativity to help us outperform on an international scale.”

Highly funded start-up FLYR Labs has appointed 8020 to promote its breakthrough revenue management technology to airlines and transport operators worldwide. The Revenue Operating System® from FLYR harnesses the power of AI and deep learning to help transportation leaders unlock additional revenue and growth. The system’s proven effectiveness has already attracted some of the world’s best-known airlines and FLYR’s recent $150m Series C funding round was backed by some of Silicon Valley’s premier technology investors.

8020 Communications’ UK and US-based team is supporting FLYR in media relations, social media, thought leadership, and marketing content. 8020 is providing corporate communications support to FLYR’s B2B market activity and high-volume recruitment drive.

Ashley Wakeland, Head of Marketing, FLYR, says: “We approached 8020 Communications because of its expertise in the aviation industry. The team’s knowledge, combined with sincere passion and commitment to FLYR’s vision, makes 8020 the ideal partner for us. They understand our business, the dynamic industry environment, and the journey we are taking.”

Marc Cornelius, CEO, 8020 Communications, says: “These are exciting times for the aviation industry. CharterSync and FLYR have both faced the global challenges of the last three years head-on, providing innovative, digital solutions in a period of continued uncertainty. Both companies have huge growth opportunities and we are excited to be bringing their stories to market around the world.”
