Qatar Airways Cargo is launching an express airfreight service for door-to-door and time-critical shipments.
The QR On-Board Courier service will be rolled out across the Middle East-based cargo carrier’s global network on August 1, enabling customers to book time-definite airfreight delivery solutions.
It will use dedicated couriers accompanying each shipment from collection to delivery, direct to the recipient.
Ulrich Ogiermann, Qatar Airways’ chief officer cargo, said: “Time matters to our customers, and Qatar Airways Cargo’s new On-Board Courier service will focus on speed of delivery providing reliable transportation solutions to meet the demands of time-sensitive industries such as the high tech and automotive sectors.
“With Qatar Airways’ global network operating to 150 destinations, this premium service will be invaluable for multinational businesses that are at risk of supply chain delays.”
Customers will be able to track the real-time progress of their shipment at any time by using the online tracking system available on www.qatarairwayscargo.travel.
The carrier said that its new courier service will appeal to “leading brands and suppliers in the automotive, financial, energy, pharmaceutical, medical and fashion sectors for transportation of time-critical spare parts, samples, prototypes and important documents”.
