Etihad Cargo renews Gulf road feeder contract with MICCO
03 / 04 / 2019
Etihad Cargo has again selected MICCO as its road feeder services (RFS) provider in a multi-year agreement, continuing a decade-long partnership between the two Abu Dhabi-based logistics players.
The RFS network connects major air and sea gateways in the Emirates of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, as well as key Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries including Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain.
Etihad Cargo customers can book road feeder operations directly online through the airline’s airfreight web portal.
Under the renewed partnership, MICCO will continue to provide Etihad Cargo with customs-sealed and bonded container vehicles, as well as refrigerated and non-refrigerated reefer trucks to support Etihad’s FreshForward perishable products through door services across the UAE.
MICCO, an integrated logistics player, is focused on freight management, travel services, and specialised supply chain activities, particularly within fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). Under the new agreement with Etihad, its vehicles will be branded with Etihad Cargo’s new ‘Choose Well’ proposition.
Andre Blech, head of operations and service delivery at Etihad Cargo, said: “Thanks to our new digital technology platform launched in October 2018, those RFS services are now available for our customers to book directly online through the Etihad Cargo web booking portal.
“Our customers can continue to avail seamless road connectivity between our hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport and the major gateways in the UAE and GCC, and can track their shipments on board these vehicles through our state-of-the-art track and trace capability.”
