Emirates SkyCargo launches new e-commerce delivery platform

Posted 15 October 2019 · Add Comment

Emirates SkyCargo has launched Emirates Delivers - a new e-commerce delivery platform that allows customers shopping from multiple online retailers in the US to consolidate their purchases and have the goods delivered to a home or office address.

 

Now available to individual or small business customers in the UAE, Emirates Delivers supports Dubai's vision to become as a global hub for e-commerce, as envisioned under the Dubai Silk Road Strategy announced by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai.

Emirates Delivers is a fast, reliable and cost-effective e-commerce shipping solution that is targeted both at individual customers as well as small businesses who regularly shop online for their personal or business needs. It is an open e-commerce fulfilment platform that can also be used by other e-commerce businesses and logistics integrators.

Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo, said: "Emirates SkyCargo is delighted to be the first international cargo airline in the world to develop a dedicated e-commerce delivery platform. Currently, Emirates Delivers enables consumers to purchase their favourite products from any US based online retail store and have it delivered in the UAE. The launch of Emirates Delivers is in line with our strategy to roll out specialised and innovative air transportation products targeted at industry verticals and with our efforts to position Dubai as a global e-commerce fulfilment hub for customers based in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. This is line with the Dubai Silk Road Strategy announced earlier this year by HH Sheikh Hamdan which aims to strengthen Dubai's position as a key trade and logistics hub.

"The e-commerce industry has grown by more than 150% in the last five years and we have been working with industry partners to develop an ideal delivery platform that can harness the power of Emirates' modern fleet, expansive global network and multiple flight frequencies together with using Dubai's strategic position to deliver optimal value to our end customers. We are actively working on expanding the availability of Emirates Delivers to a larger number of source and destination markets in the near future."
