Dnata Cargo’s throughput up 23 percent
Dubai’s Dnata Cargo recorded a throughput of 167,076 tons handled in the first half of the current financial year beginning in April. This represents a 23 percent increase over the same period last year, stated a press release.
Exports accounted for 66,945 tons and imports for 100,131 tons. Transit cargo registered in the half year amounted to 12,320 tons, a massive 73.4 percent increase over last year, caused mainly by a surge in cargo feeder activities from the Indian Subcontinent to Dubai for onward connection to Europe and the US.
That total tonnage figure includes shipments at the main cargo terminal in Dubai Air Cargo Village and the terminals in the Dubai Airport and Jebel Ali Free Zones, all operated by Dnata Cargo. Emirates SkyCargo took over self-handling at its Dubai hub in April this year.
Dnata Cargo offers a cargo handling, logistics, cargo marketing and management services. Wholly-owned by the Government of Dubai, Dnata Cargo is the sole operator of the Dubai Air Cargo Terminal and three satellite terminals. — (menareport.com)
