E-freight expands in the Middle East and Africa

Here you write the program nameEl Al Israel Airlines is the 34th airline to join the league of e-freight live airlines worldwide that offer paper free air cargo. The airline completed its first paperless cargo shipment on the Tel Aviv – Frankfurt trade lane this month. 

El Al is a key player in Israel’s air cargo industry and their participation in the e-freight live network is instrumental to increasing e-freight volumes to and from Israel. This is also another step towards the 2011 IATA Board target of reaching volumes representing 10% penetration on worldwide live trade lanes.

Emirates SkyCargo also completed it's first paperless freighter flight on the Nairobi-Amsterdam trade lane last month. This is an important milestone  as it is the first flight out of Nairobi with 100% electronically processed cargo. Read full press release.
