Emirates SkyCargo provides capacity of 1,600 tonnes for
its customers in Thailand. The majority of the shipments are bound for
Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Cargo includes electronic parts,
auto parts, fresh food, vegetables, and garments.
Aniruth Songsatya, Cargo Manager Thailand & Indochina
said: "Emirates SkyCargo is committed to providing a wide range of
leading-edge, innovative and value-added air cargo products and solutions
for our Thai customers.
"The new office moves us closer to our customers and
offers our supply chain partners a convenient gateway to and from
Suvarnabhumi airport. As most of our partners are based in the cargo-free
zone area, our new office offers maximum convenience and enhances our
capability to monitor movements of cargo at the cargo terminal located at
the airport. The move also underlines our growth in Thailand and our
position as a leading global airfreight logistics provider," he added.
Earlier this year, Emirates SkyCargo was nominated as
"Cargo Airline of the Year" by the editors of Air Transport World
at the 2007 Airline Industry Achievement Awards programme.
