One million ULDs between DXB and DWC
Launched in April 2014, Emirates Skycargo's bonded corridor trucking service connecting Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC) recently transported the one millionth unit loading device (ULD).
Since the beginning of freighter flights at DWC, the movement of cargo between the two airports has been achieved through more than 272,000 trips with a transit time of 4.5 hours between the arrival of goods on freighter aircraft to their departure from passenger aircraft and vice versa.
Henrik Ambak, Emirates SVP, cargo operations worldwide: "As the only air cargo carrier to operate a two-airport cargo hub capable of handling close to 3 million t of cargo a year, our fleet of 49 trucks function rather like a continuously rolling conveyor belt." (ah)
