Emirates SkyCargo flew over 262,000 tons of perishables in 2021
Since the pandemic, Emirates has seen significant growth in sea and air volumes through the UAE. Dubai has a strategic advantage in terms of its geographical location. It also boasts an unrivalled infrastructure to serve the needs of the global logistics industry. Emirates SkyCargo operates two terminals in Dubai. The first is Emirates SkyCentral DXB at Dubai International airport, which handles cargo from passenger aircraft, and the second is Emirates SkyCentral DWC at Dubai World Central, which handles cargo from freighter aircraft.
“Perishables is an important part of our business and we transport an estimated 500-600 tons of perishables every day on our flights across the world. We have been transporting perishables for decades and we used our expertise to launch a new specialised product in 2018: Emirates Fresh,” said Dennis Lister, vice president of cargo commercial development.
