Charter service from Colombo to Columbus
Qatar Airways Cargo shipped over 100 t of garments in collaboration with one of its major customers, EFL (Expo Freight), headquartered in Colombo (Sri Lanka), early this month. The garments were flown on a B777F from Colombo to Rickenbacker airport in Colombus OH (USA), for L Brands, an Ohio-based US fashion retailer.
The shipment marks the airline's first charter service to LCK airport and demonstrates how the carrier’s world-wide network opens global connection opportunities for other businesses in the region.
EFL founder and chairman Hanif Yusoof: "This serves as a great example of logistic providers and airlines working together to tailor solutions that benefit supply chain customers. We look forward to increasing our engagement with carriers and customers." (ah)
