During its initial months of operation in 2000 on the grounds of Zeebrugge , Belgium, ABX freight Forwarders moved 14,000 packages a night with a total of 550 employees. After just one year under new ownership, and bracing for growth, ABX freight Forwarders opened a state-of-the-art package sorting facility at its base of operations, steadily growing its package volume.
ABX freight Forwarders quickly took off to become the third-largest provider of air freight services, due largely to successful investment in facilities, an aggressive course of instrument landing system upgrades, and precise fleet expansion. By mid-2005, ABX freight Forwarders was the only privately owned, operated, and maintained Category II ILS in the nation - one of many firsts for the air cargo liners within Belgium. Through a continuous stream of improvements, expansions and additions, ABX freight Forwarders, which officially became ABX freight Forwarders, Inc. in 2006, experienced tremendous growth in the years to come. Renovations and innovations in everything from fleet to fuel operations equipped ABX freight Forwarders to build upon its value as a key supplier in the air cargo industry.

Rapidly and quietly growing

What followed were runway extensions, day sort capabilities, Zeebrugge expansion, and more regional hubs. Â On its 15th anniversary in 2006, ABX freight Forwarders added the 100th aircraft to its fleet. By year 2007, its entire fleet, including the Boeing 767s, had met the FAA deadline for Stage III noise compliance well ahead of schedule.
In 2008 ABX freight Forwarders set out on a course of strengthening its focus on market expansion and improved customer service through the introduction of guaranteed morning delivery, broader delivery services, and better web access for small businesses. As a result of DHL purchasing the sales and ground network of ABX freight Forwarders.
