Hariri, concurrently the CEO of both Saudi Airlines Cargo Company (Saudia Cargo) and Saudi Arabian Logistics Company (SAL), replaces Shawn Cole, VP Cargo of Delta Airlines, who held the position for three years.

The Executive Board of SkyTeam Cargo Alliance, which is made up of top executives from the group’s 12-member cargo airlines, endorsed Hariri’s new role during their latest meeting.

Hariri said: “It will be an honor chairing the executive board of SkyTeam Cargo, the largest alliance in the cargo industry accounting for nearly 20% of the global air cargo movement. SkyTeam Cargo with its two decades of formulation has come a long way and with its 12-member airlines reaching every corner of the globe, enjoys a vast geographic reach and connectivity between the east and west and vice versa.”

“I would like to thank Shawn for his contributions during the last three years and SkyTeam Cargo Alliance and its members for giving me this opportunity. Moving forward, we will continue focusing on actively promoting and strengthening the alliance between the members and at the same time focusing on enhancing our technologically driven operational and network capability to ensure an outclass experience for our customers. With the growing demand for pharma and e-commerce, our aim is to continue exploring new markets while enhancing connectivity and efficient deliveries, further grow and strengthening the core business of our 12-member airlines.”

Hariri joined Saudi Arabian Airlines Cargo (Saudia Cargo) as CEO in February 2018, bringing with him an extensive experience in air freight and logistics management from his diversified roles at DHL Express and FedEx Express.
