A company launched from necessity and a pandemic

It was during the covid – 19 lockdown, that Cross Border Air Inc was launched. Cross Border Air Inc (a sibling company to Monarc Global), less than a few weeks old, has already facilitated over 20 -25 freight and cargo flights around the world with over $45 million in turnover.

Like most business ideas, Cross Border Air Inc. launched out of necessity and opportunity, and “being there at the right place and the right time, but in this case, the company also derived from a pandemic” said Co-founder Royce Crown.  

“It was amidst the covid-19 lockdown; most businesses were struggling to get freight and cargo out of specific countries due to the halting of commercial flights. And to make matters worse, these businesses were also being price gouged of up to 400% more than the actual cost” said Crown.

At the time, Royce and his team from Monarc Global (a company specialising aviation technology software for charter operators) were already facilitating repatriation flights for stranded Australians overseas plus working on their product Travech, when they started receiving calls from companies enquiring about freight and cargo services. 

Founders Barry Shepherd, from Kingwood Texas (with a history of experience in logistics) and Royce Crown (over 20 years in the private charter and aviation industry) soon realised the opportunity and a gap in the market for a reliable, efficient and competitively priced service to be offered. With an office in the U.S.A and Australia, Cross Border Air Inc facilitates only whole aircraft chartering, and they don’t specialise in small deliveries.

“We don’t deal with small deliveries. We started the company out of an urgent need to move medical supplies (essential) and other non-essential items, and so we want the company to reflect its purpose as being a solution for full aircraft cargo shipping, the client must have enough cargo to fill an entire aircraft. We are in the market to provide long term solutions for the client, giving customers competitive price points by providing multiple runs for their freight and cargo delivery” Crown said.

Cross Border Air Inc is a freight and cargo aircraft charter company, utilising airliners and freighters for long term solutions in freight and cargo, bypassing the need for the use of commercial airlines.
