Emirates SkyCargo wins top logistics award

DUBAI, February 8, 2016

Emirates SkyCargo has been named 'International Air Cargo Carrier of the Year' at the Economic Times Logistics’ Awards in India. 
 
Organised by The Economic Times, a leading financial daily in India, the awards aim to recognise excellence in logistics that can set benchmarks for the respective industries in India.
 
KPMG India, a leading auditing and advisory company in India, rated the nominees on a set of criteria, including connectivity offered, the annual turnover and growth of the company, said a statement. 
 
The winners were selected by a panel of judges nominated by the organisers, he said.
 
Emirates SkyCargo is one of the key facilitators of cargo from India and operates stations in nine locations, including Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Cochin, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Thiruvananthapuram. 
 
Last year, the cargo leader transported more than 168,000 tonnes of cargo from India. 
 
Key exports from this market included pharmaceuticals, chemicals, automotive parts, engineering spares, perishables and electronic items. 
 
In addition to belly space in the passenger aircraft, Emirates SkyCargo operates three weekly scheduled freighters from India. 
 
It also manages ad hoc charters for Indian exporters and consignees, who have special requirements and want to export special cargo for specific projects, such as local festivals and music concerts.
 
Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional senior vice president, Cargo, said: “Emirates started its cargo operations in India over 30 years ago and our capacity has grown to 183 weekly wide-body aircraft services connecting our customers in India to 150 cities in 80 countries around the world. 
 
"We are also continually innovating to provide tailored solutions that answer our customers’ cargo requirements. We feel very honoured to have won this award and are pleased to know that our commitment to provide innovative cargo solutions is recognised in the market.” - TradeArabia News Service
