Posted 28 May 2019 · Add Comment

Emirates SkyCargo is partnering with Gargash, one of the largest distributors of premium and luxury cars in the UAE to transport cars for the Gumball 3000 motor rally, an annual celebrity event that raises money for charity.

 

The partnership agreement was signed by Nabil Sultan, divisional senior vice president, Emirates SkyCargo and Shehab Gargash, managing director & Group CEO, Gargash Group.

Emirates SkyCargo is set to transport four Mercedes Benz AMG GT63 4 Door cars from Dubai to the Gumball rally and back. The cars will travel on a Boeing 777 freighter from Dubai World Central. Emirates SkyCargo’s Boeing 777 freighter aircraft can carry cargo up to 100 tonnes and are capable of accommodating wide or oversized cargo thanks to wide main deck doors.

“This is the second year that we are working with Gargash to transport cars for the Gumball 3000 rally. We had a successful collaboration last year which helped us showcase Emirates Wheels, our specialised product for transporting automobiles, to a large audience in the UAE as well as the rest of the world. We look forward to offering our First Class treatment to the Team Gargash cars participating in this year’s rally,” said Sultan.

“We are proud to be working once again with Emirates. Two Pioneering UAE companies are collaborating to make the extra-ordinary happen this year, and automobile enthusiasts’ heads will turn around the world” said Gargash.
