Etihad Cargo has extended its partnership with MICCO as its provider for road feeder services across the UAE and Gulf Cooperation Council.
The road feeder service network connects air and sea gateways in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, as well as Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain.
Under the partnership, MICCO will continue to provide Etihad Cargo with customs-sealed and bonded container vehicles, as well as refrigerated and non-refrigerated reefer trucks to support Etihad’s FreshForward perishable product.
Andre Blech, head of operations and service delivery at Etihad Cargo says: “It is a pleasure to once more extend this partnership with MICCO. It is a testament to the exceptional service quality and operational flexibility that we grew accustomed to from them over the years and perfectly complements our air cargo offering from our hub in Abu Dhabi.”
Under the agreement, MICCO’s vehicles will be branded with Etihad Cargo’s new “Choose Well” proposition.
Captain A.M. Simreen, CEO of MICCO says: “As an international but homegrown logistics leader operating from the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, MICCO is proud to partner with the cargo and logistics arm of the national airline of the UAE. We share a goal of driving growth in Abu Dhabi’s economy through innovation and technological progression. Our RFS partnership will play an important role in connecting major air and sea gateways across the GCC.”
Etihad Cargo customers can book RFS services through the web booking portal, with Blech saying: “Our customers can continue to avail seamless road connectivity between our hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport and the major gateways in the UAE and GCC, and can track their shipments on board these vehicles through our state-of-the-art track and trace capability.”
