Te­wolde Ge­bre-Mariam, Group CEO, Ethiopian Air­lines re­marked, “With the largest and most mod­ern ded­i­cated freighter fleet and the largest cargo net­work con­nect­ing African coun­tries with their ma­jor trad­ing part­ners around the world. Ethiopian Cargo is con­tribut­ing its own share in the fast and sus­tain­able eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of Africa. Air freight plays crit­i­cal role in in­ter­na­tional trade and es­pe­cially in the car­riage of high value goods, tem­per­a­ture con­trolled cargo like flower, fruits and veg­eta­bles, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, life sci­ence etc.”

While we are on the eve of the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the first phase of our state-of-the-art cargo ter­mi­nal, ad­di­tion of these cargo routes, makes our global air cargo ser­vice even more stretched to the world with ad­e­quate ground fa­cil­i­ties and qual­ity ser­vices. This move will fur­ther strengthen trade and com­mer­cial ties be­tween Africa and Europe.”
