SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has been named Global Cargo Airline of the Year by The Stat Trade Times, organisers of the Air Cargo Africa 2013 event recently held in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Stat Trade Times, which forms part of the STAT Media Group, is an international multimodal transport publication that has, since 2006, presented awards in various categories to encourage excellence in the air cargo industry.
