Global Demand: Ethiopian Cargo Re-calibrates Operations
Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services is adapting its operations to the evolving global demand for air cargo services following the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to the current situation, Ethiopian Cargo has extended its reach to 74 destinations globally, and caters to charter flight needs anywhere in the world, carrying much needed medical supplies in the ongoing fight against COVID-19.
In the month of March alone, Ethiopian transported a total uplift of over 45,848 tons of cargo to different parts of the world deploying both its freighters and passenger fleet.
The shipments include pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and healthcare products carried with 86 charter flights using Boeing 777 freighters, each with a capacity of 100 tons, in response to the COVID 19 pandemic.
It is to be recalled that Ethiopian recently delivered medical supplies – including testing kits, masks and protective suits – donated by Jack Ma and Alibaba Group to African countries with the initiative of Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed.
