EMIRATES SkyCargo has joined forces with Dubai-based e-commerce start-up Seafood Souq to support efficient transportation of seafood for Seafood Souq's customers. The airline will transport seafood shipments from source markets to customers using the start-up's application.

Initially, shipments will be delivered from fresh seafood markets such as Norway, Cyprus, Chile, the US and Scotland to Seafood Souq's growing customer base in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East. The start-up intends over time to expand its customer base to include customers worldwide, which will be supported by Emirates SkyCargo's global network, reported New York's Air Cargo World.



Seafood Souq has developed an online business-to-business (B2B) marketplace app to help seafood buyers purchase products worldwide. Usage of the app streamlines the traditional model for sourcing seafood and allows for improved quality and traceability of the product being transported. According to the start-up, the platform reduces the sale of mis-labelled or expired seafood.



'The core aim of Seafood Souq is to provide access to fresh products in the quickest possible time by connecting customers to suppliers and allowing produce to be dispatched on the day that the order is received. Working with Emirates SkyCargo was the naturally obvious choice for us because of the network and frequency of flights offered by them,' said Seafood Souq chief executive officer Sean Dennis.



The shipments will be supported by Emirates SkyCargo's growing cool-chain capabilities and infrastructure, which saw the expansion of its pharma corridor network to its facility in Chicago earlier this year.
