Etihad Cargo wins top Italian award
Abu Dhabi, June 30, 2013
Etihad Cargo, the freight division of UAE national carrier Etihad Airways, has been awarded Best Overall Carrier by the Italian Association of Air Cargo Agents (Anama).
The award was presented to Roberto Casabianca, Etihad Cargo’s head of Global Sales at the annual cargo industry awards ceremony held by Anama (Associazione Nationale Agenti Merci Aeree) recently in Milan’s Museo della Triennale.
Etihad Cargo was lauded by a 14-member Anama jury for its investment in the Italian freight market, innovation, service performance, market competitiveness, for being the best cargo operator to the Middle East, and for its successful relationship with the Italian freight forwarding community.
David Kerr, Etihad Airways’ vice president Cargo, said: “This award is testament to our continuous focus on new and existing customers and our investment in the inbound and outbound Italian cargo market.”
As a result of investment, Etihad Cargo’s freight business in Italy is growing, he added. In 2012, the carrier carried more than 19,000 tons of freight to and from Italy, up 15 per cent on 2011.
“As a global cargo operator, we look forward to working ever closer with our partners to link Italy with the rest of our growing cargo network,” Kerr said.
