LogisticsNews Middle East - - REGIONAL NEWS -

Emi­rates Sky­cargo was pre­sented with its Cargo iq cer­ti­fi­ca­tion at the World Cargo Sym­po­sium in Dal­las, Texas, USA.

SGS, Cargo iq’s nom­i­nated ex­ter­nal au­dit com­pany, au­dited Emi­rates Sky­cargo’s in­ter­nal pro­cesses, in­clud­ing the mea­sures taken by the car­rier to min­imise or elim­i­nate ship­ment er­rors and pro­vide cus­tomers with more vis­i­bil­ity on the sta­tus of their ship­ments.

Emi­rates Sky­cargo be­came a mem­ber of Cargo iq in 2016, and in­te­grated Cargo iq ship­ment cy­cle man­age­ment stan­dards as the ba­sis for its live ship­ment plan­ning and track­ing of cargo.

Ari­aen Zim­mer­man, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, Cargo iq, re­marked: “The way Emi­rates Sky­cargo has in­te­grated the Cargo iq Mas­ter Op­er­at­ing Plan with their in­ter­nal pro­ce­dures is a clear ex­am­ple of how im­ple­ment­ing our stan­dards of­fers so much more than a mere monthly re­port, and can ac­tu­ally lead to bet­ter process and ship­ment con­trol.”

Emi­rates Sky­cargo has in­vested in set­ting up and op­er­at­ing a ded­i­cated Cargo Op­er­a­tions Con­trol Cen­tre (COCC) which mon­i­tors the sta­tus of ship­ments in real time. COCC uses live ship­ment data and Cargo iq met­rics to track the ship­ment’s jour­ney against its route map and de­liv­ery com­mit­ment cre­ated at the time of book­ing.

Na­bil Sul­tan, Emi­rates di­vi­sional se­nior vice pres­i­dent, Cargo, com­mented: “Over the last two years, we have worked on in­te­grat­ing the vi­sion of Cargo iq into our pro­cesses. Get­ting the Cargo iq cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and the set­ting up of our 24/7 Cargo Op­er­a­tions Con­trol Cen­tre are the first steps in a jour­ney where we can be more trans­par­ent and at the same time more proac­tively sup­port our cus­tomer prom­ises.”

The Cargo iq route map is in­te­grated into the frame­work of the COCC, en­sur­ing that the ser­vice prom­ise and jour­ney up­dates are ex­changed be­tween Emi­rates Sky­cargo and the cus­tomer. un­der­ground metro line es­ti­mated time of com­ple­tion of route 2020

ACCIONA and Guler­mak JV are lead­ing the civil en­gi­neer­ing works for Route 2020, which ac­counts for ap­prox­i­mately 50% of the project, while Al­stom is car­ry­ing out the other half, which in­cludes sup­ply­ing 50 Metropo­lis trains and in­te­grat­ing the metro sys­tems, and up­grad­ing the ex­ist­ing metro line.
