After two rounds – including nomination from readers followed by final voting by a group of independent judges, Emirates SkyCargo was presented the Air Cargo Carrier of the Year Award at a gala dinner at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The annual Supply Chain Asia Logistics Awards - attended by more than 300 senior executives in the logistics and supply chain industry across Asia - recognise corporations and individuals in the fields of supply chain and logistics. The Air Cargo Carrier of the Year Award is open to Asian and global air cargo carriers.

"This award is testament to the hard work, talent and dedication of everyone at Emirates SkyCargo,” said Ram Menen, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Cargo. “It is particularly pleasing to win an award with such diverse criteria, with the decision based not only on the size of our network, but also on the reliability of service, level of customer satisfaction, approach to sustainability, CSR, security and risk management.

“Emirates SkyCargo is honoured to win The Air Cargo Carrier of the Year award and remains committed to surpassing the high standards we have set and providing our customers with world-class service.”

The Supply Chain Asia Logistics accolade was just one of three recent awards won by Emirates SkyCargo.
