On receiving its customs badge at Heathrow, Seamus Jennings, Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be able to continue to expand our range of services having established our air freight division, John Good Air, back in January. With our own customs badge covering one of the world’s most important airports, London Heathrow, we will be able to control cargo at an earlier stage in the supply chain which will benefit our customers by offering greater visibility enabling them to make informed decisions.”
