Emirates SkyCargo will target e-commerce traffic through a new deal it has signed with free zone Dubai CommerCity.
The two partners said they will work together to develop new solutions for the global e-commerce sector to help retailers save time and money, although details on what form these solutions will take were not revealed.
Emirates’ Divisional Vice President, Cargo, Nabil Sultan said: “Every day Emirates SkyCargo transports a large volume of e-commerce shipments as part of our mail or general cargo offerings.
"We are progressing to the next step where we cooperate more closely with e-retailers with the ultimate aim of getting products to customers even more quickly and cost effectively.
“Dubai CommerCity, with its focus on e-commerce, can be an ideal platform for us to develop and roll out new solutions as well as technology that can be used to improve the speed, efficiency and safety of e-commerce shipments."
Mohammed Al Zarooni, director general, Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority added: “The co-operation between Emirates SkyCargo and Dubai CommerCity will enable us to strengthen Dubai’s position as a global hub for e-commerce operations and provide a value-added logistics experience, which in turn, can drive the growth of both parties."
