Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Emi­rates SkyCargo, the freight divi­sion of Emi­rates, has been named Air Cargo Car­rier of the Year at the 20th edi­tion of the Global Freight Awards cer­e­mony held in Lon­don.

The Global Freight Awards, sup­ported by the 164 year old freight pub­li­ca­tion Lloyd’s Load­ing list, is held an­nu­ally to recog­nise and re­ward in­no­va­tive ideas and achieve­ments that have set a bench­mark for ex­cel­lence in the freight in­dus­try. Emi­rates SkyCargo was awarded the much cov­eted Air cargo Car­rier of the Year ti­tle for 2016 at the end of a two stage vot­ing process open to read­ers of Lloyd’s Load­ing List.

Emi­rates SkyCargo is the largest in­ter­na­tional air­line cargo op­er­a­tor with a fleet of over 250 wide bod­ied air­craft, in­clud­ing 15 ded­i­cated freighters- 13 Boe­ing 777-Fs and two B747-400ERFs. The car­rier con­nects cargo cus­tomers in 154 des­ti­na­tions across 82 coun­tries in six con­ti­nents through its hub in Dubai. A global fa­cil­i­ta­tor of trade and com­merce, Emi­rates SkyCargo op­er­ates ded­i­cated freighter ser­vices to over 50 global des­ti­na­tions in ad­di­tion to of­fer­ing cargo ca­pac­ity on board its pas­sen­ger flights. Most re­cently, the car­rier launched a weekly freighter ser­vice from Oslo to Dubai to fa­cil­i­tate the in­creas­ing ex­ports of fresh sea food from the Scan­di­na­vian coun­try to the rest of the world.

The Air Cargo Car­rier of the year ac­co­lade is an im­mense achieve­ment for Emi­rates SkyCargo. The car­rier has con­stantly strived to cre­ate new bench­marks in the air freight in­dus­try by of­fer­ing cus­tomers ex­cel­lence in ser­vice de­liv­ery through state of the art in­fra­struc­ture and in­no­va­tive prod­ucts. Lead­ing the in­dus­try, Emi­rates SkyCargo launched Emi­rates SkyPharma- a pur­pose built fa­cil­ity for han­dling tem­per­a­ture sen­si­tive phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal ship­ments ear­lier this year. Emi­rates SkyCargo’s fa­cil­i­ties for trans­port­ing phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals through its hubs in Dubai are not only state of the art but also cer­ti­fied as com­ply­ing to the high­est in­dus­try stan­dards (EU GDP Guide­lines) by Bureau Ver­i­tas, Ger­many.

Emi­rates SkyCargo has been at the fore­front of the air cargo in­dus­try re­ceiv­ing a num­ber of in­dus­try recog­ni­tions this year in­clud­ing the award for Over­all Car­rier of the Year at the Pay­load Asia Awards held in Hong Kong, the ‘Best Air Cargo Car­rier- Mid­dle East’ at the 2016 Asian Freight, Lo­gis­tics and Sup­ply Chain (AFLAS) Awards held in Shang­hai, the ‘Best Cargo Air­line Mid­dle East 2016’ at the World Air Cargo Awards in Lon­don and the ‘Di­a­mond Award’ at the Air Cargo Ex­cel­lence Awards 2016 in Berlin.
