Eti­had Cargo records big­gest monthly up­lift

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

It has been a month of mile­stones for Eti­had Cargo. The freight divi­sion of Eti­had Air­ways recorded its busiest month ever in Oc­to­ber, uplift­ing 53,785 tons of cargo and sur­pass­ing its pre­vi­ous best, achieved in Novem­ber 2014, by 501 tons.

This re­flected growth in per­ish­ables traf­fic from Africa, US in­bound and out­bound traf­fic, and vol­umes from Europe to Asia Pa­cific. Just a few days af­ter achiev­ing this record, Eti­had Cargo en­rolled its 4,000th mem­ber into its Car­goCon­nect loy­alty pro­gram.

David Kerr, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent of Eti­had Cargo, said: “Cus­tomer loy­alty plays a big part in the suc­cess of Eti­had Cargo op­er­a­tions world­wide. We’re de­lighted to have the on­go­ing sup­port and com­mit­ment of our part­ners who have con­trib­uted to the record lev­els of up­lift dur­ing Oc­to­ber.”

Car­goCon­nect mem­bers earn one mile for ev­ery US$2 net rev­enue on Gen­eral Cargo and four miles for ev­ery US$2 net rev­enue on Pre­mium Cargo. Miles can be re­deemed for a range of things from of­fice equip­ment to flights to smart phones, and more.

The pro­gram has achieved a re­demp­tion rate of 30 per cent so far in 2016, one of the high­est amongst sim­i­lar loy­alty re­ward schemes in the in­dus­try.

To mark the achieve­ment, Eti­had Cargo hosted a cer­e­mony dur­ing this past week­end’s 2016 For­mula 1 Eti­had Air­ways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with the 4,000th cus­tomer, Kerry Lo­gis­tics.

Sammy Mak, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Lo­gis­tics and Car­rier Pro­cure­ment at Kerry Lo­gis­tics, ac­cepted 150,000 Car­goCon­nect miles as a to­ken of recog­ni­tion on be­half of his com­pany.
