Emirates SkyCargo is the freight division of Emirates airline which offers comprehensive cargo solutions to more than 120 destinations in over 70 countries on six continents.
Emirates SkyCargo uses belly-hold capacity in Emirates’ passenger aircraft, as well as maindeck capacity on its fleet of eight freighters, featuring four Boeing 777Fs, two 747-400Fs and two 747-400ERFs.
In addition to serving all points on the Emirates passenger network, it transports goods to more than 10 cargo-only destinations, including Gothenburg and Zaragoza.
The Emirates fleet, with an average age of under 80 months, is among the youngest in the skies, contributing significantly to the reliability, fuel efficiency and speed of Emirates SkyCargo services, which account for 16.2% of the airline’s transport revenue - one of the highest rates in the world.
Since it was founded in 1985, Emirates SkyCargo has established itself as a major global player recognized by more than 100 international awards, while in the 2011/12 financial year it transported 1.8 million tonnes across its network.
It has the expertise and equipment to provide a number of specialised services for the transport and warehousing of livestock, perishable goods, temperature-controlled items, urgent and valuable deliveries, bulky loads and other unusual consignments.
The division employs more than 1,000 people across the globe and is supported by a network of on-the-ground handling agencies and overland freighting partners.
A major factor in its success is the end-to-end IT cargo management system SkyChain, which gives customers a range of business logistics technology solutions, including up-to-the-second status reports on consignments, from booking through to final delivery.
In 2008, Emirates SkyCargo moved its operations into the 43,600 square metre state-of-the-art Cargo Mega Terminal, which has the capacity to process 1.2 million tonnes of cargo a year and benefits from the location of Dubai Customs, the Department of Civil Aviation and the UAE Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries in the same building.
