From dry goods to perishables to pharma, Saudia Cargo is well prepared to keep your stocks in their best form and original state through various techniques and technologically advanced equipment with varying degrees of temperature.

In this year’s Air Cargo Europe 2017, Saudia Cargo dedicated a section of its booth to the importance of temperature controlled facilities and equipment like ULDs to keep perishables—fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, among other things—in their natural state.

The right temperature is equally important in airlifting healthcare products, pharmaceuticals and even vital human organs to sustain life of another human being and Saudia Cargo has all the right facilities and equipment to do that.

Nabil Khojah, CEO of Saudia Cargo, said the company unilaterally decided to adopt the new booth concept to show its capabilities to handle different types of cargo, particularly time sensitive and delicate ones.

“We are happy to participate in the latest edition of Air Cargo Europe. This time, we’re showcasing some of Saudia Cargo’s latest equipment in handling high-value, time-sensitive goods. Quality and safety are paramount in our operations and we make sure that our customers get the best value for their money, hence, we have invested heavily on equipment that best serve their interest,” said Khojah who continues to promote innovation in the way they do business.

Handling critical cargo is among Saudia Cargo’s specialties having been based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where the weather can be extremely hot during certain months of the year.

Rainer Mueller, Executive Director Commercial of Saudia Cargo, said there is no escaping technology in the digital age and by embracing it, customers will benefit more in terms of speed, reliability and accuracy.
“In today’s modern business world, we need to embrace technology to keep up with the times. There are pros and cons but there’s no denying we need to adapt to the changes. Saudia Cargo is among companies that continue to strive for excellence and invest in knowledge and skills as part of our commitment to our customers to serve them better,” said Mueller noting that Saudia Cargo has invested on specialized containers with varying temperatures suited for goods being transported.

With the ever changing supply and demand patterns in various regions across the world, especially in the food industry, cargo operators with the right temperature controlled equipment hold key to a healthy business.

Messe Munchen is hosting Air Cargo Europe 2017, the world’s leading trade fair for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management. The four-day event, May 9-12, 2017, is expected to draw about 60,000 visitors from over 120 countries and more than 2,000 exhibitors from all over the world.
