Emi­rates Sky­cargo part­ners Gargash for char­ity mo­tor rally

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - SHIPPING/LOGISTICS/AVIATION/PROPERTY -

For the sec­ond year in a row, Emi­rates Sky­cargo, the freight di­vi­sion of Emi­rates, is part­ner­ing with Gargash, one of the largest dis­trib­u­tors of pre­mium and lux­ury cars in the UAE to trans­port cars for the Gum­ball 3000 mo­tor rally, an an­nual celebrity event that raises money for char­ity.

The part­ner­ship agree­ment was signed by Emi­rates Sky­cargo Divi­sional Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Na­bil Sul­tan and Gargash Group Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor and Group CEO She­hab Gargash.

Emi­rates Sky­cargo is set to trans­port four Mercedes Benz AMG GT63 four-door cars from Dubai to Athens for the Gum­ball rally and back. The cars will travel on a Boe­ing 777 freighter from Dubai World Cen­tral.

Emi­rates Sky­cargo’s Boe­ing 777 freighter air­craft can carry cargo up to 100 tonnes and are ca­pa­ble of ac­com­mo­dat­ing wide or over­sized cargo thanks to wide main deck doors.

“This is the sec­ond year that we are work­ing with Gargash to trans­port cars for the Gum­ball 3000 rally. We had a suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion last year which helped us show­case Emi­rates Wheels, our spe­cialised prod­uct for trans­port­ing au­to­mo­biles, to a large au­di­ence in the UAE as well as the rest of the world. We look for­ward to of­fer­ing our First Class treat­ment to the Team Gargash cars par­tic­i­pat­ing in this year’s rally,” said Emi­rates Sky­cargo Divi­sional Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Na­bil Sul­tan.

“We are proud to be work­ing once again with Emi­rates. Two pi­o­neer­ing UAE com­pa­nies are col­lab­o­rat­ing to make the ex­tra-or­di­nary hap­pen this year, and au­to­mo­bile en­thu­si­asts’ heads will turn around the world,” said Gargash Group Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor and Group CEO She­hab Gargash.

Emi­rates Sky­cargo reg­u­larly trans­ports high value and unique au­to­mo­biles on both its pas­sen­ger and freighter air­craft across a global net­work span­ning six con­ti­nents. The trans­porta­tion of the ve­hi­cles is man­aged un­der Emi­rates Wheels, which brings to­gether Emi­rates Sky­cargo’s sta­teof-the-art in­fra­struc­ture and ex­per­tise, in­clud­ing trained and ex­pe­ri­enced staff to man­age the load­ing and un­load­ing of the cars from the air­craft.

Dur­ing the last fi­nan­cial year, Emi­rates Sky­cargo trans­ported more than 1,050 lux­ury cars through Emi­rates Wheels.
