EMIRATES SkyCargo has transported a large volume of temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals and perishables through Dubai to other parts of its global network this summer, reports the American Journal of Transportation.
This is evidence that perception of Dubai in the minds of global cargo customers from a transit stop to be avoided in summer because of high temperatures to a preferred state-of-the-art point of connection to markets around the world has been the big effect, said the company.
In total, the air cargo carrier moved over 150,000 tonnes of perishables and 27,000 tonnes of pharmaceuticals through Dubai between the beginning of April and mid-August 2019, said he report.
Over the last three years, Emirates SkyCargo has managed to consolidate the position of its Dubai hub as an efficient and rapid transit point for cargo originating from and destined to a variety of cities across six continents.
Emirates SkyCargo has invested in developing modern and 'fit for purpose'' infrastructure at its Emirates SkyCentral DXB and DWC cargo terminals for cargo from passenger and freighter aircraft. This includes extensive cool chain facilities and dedicated storage space for pharmaceutical cargo.
'With a combined capacity of over two million tonnes of cargo per annum, the terminals see movement of close to 5,000 shipments and over six million kilos of cargo per day including during the summer season,' said the company.
