Even as WFS has grown and established a global presence, my message to our teams around the world has always been to focus on being the best at meeting our customers’ requirements – and that is how we have become a trusted partner to over 300 airlines, airports and other customers.We also understand that being the best means proving this every single day. Every passenger we welcome, every piece of cargo we process, and every aircraft we handle is another test of our quality and reliability. I am confident we have a global team of handling professionals that ensure we meet this challenge.
