The Charter Store – USA

stablished in 2008, The Charter Store has already built a customer base and reputation out of all proportion to its age! That’s not so surprising when you consider the lengthy experience of our senior partners in the demanding charter business:

Harald (“Harry”) Steiner, Senior partner and co-founder:
35-year career in forwarding, aviation and charter starting as apprenticed forwarder (Germany), followed by 10 years with airlines (Germany, with a major freighter operator), and charter broking with a major multi-national broker (initially in Germany, ultimately as its President, USA).

Julian (“Rusty”) Durden, Senior partner and co-founder:
22 year career commenced with airport operations, then forwarding with major names including Geologistics, and charter broking with the same multi-national broker.

We cover every kind of charter imaginable; frequent users of our services include the energy, humanitarian, automotive, government and aerospace sectors.

Even before the foundation of Global Charter Alliance, of which we are the proud USA member, we managed to compete successfully with the multi-national brokers. GCA now adds further to our strengths.

The Charter Store has proven that you don’t need to be big to be effective: in fact our lean structure brings us closer to our customers, makes us quicker to respond and  – without the unnecessary overheads that typify the large players – we can be really competitive too.

Our strong financial resources, renowned business ethics and spotless reputation have given us an intensely loyal customer base and the unstinting support of the carriers on whom we depend.

The Charter Store has the experience, hands-on enthusiasm and creativity to solve every charter problem quickly and cost-effectively.

Like all GCA partners, we always respect any existing relationship between freight forwarders and their shipper clients, and will not quote direct in such situations.
