October 15 - Having moved its freighter fleet to Dubai World Central International airport (DWC), Emirates SkyCargo - the freight division of Emirates Airline - has strengthened its trucking operation with Dubai International airport.

Emirates SkyCargo launched its trucking function on May 1, 2014 in tandem with the start of its freighter operations at DWC. As of September 1, 2014 its fleet of 47 trucks facilitated the transhipment of over 108,000 tonnes of various commodities, including outsized cargo, between Dubai International - where the Emirates passenger fleet is based - and DWC.

Emirates SkyCargo signed a five-year trucking contract with a Dubai-based land transportation service provider for its fleet of trucks which consists of: two low bed trucks for handling outsized cargo including aircraft engines, cowlings, and machinery; 12 reefer trailers; and 33 dry boxes for all general cargo.
