Etihad Cargo renews partnership with MICCO for road feeder services
April 3, 2019: Etihad Cargo has once again entered into a multi-year agreement with Abu-Dhabi based MICCO, a leader in freight management and an integrated supply chain solutions provider, for road feeder services (RFS).
The RFS network connects major air and sea gateways in the Emirates of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, as well as key GCC countries including Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain.
Under the renewed 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 products through door services across the UAE.
According to the new agreement, its vehicles will be branded with Etihad Cargo's new 'Choose Well' proposition.
Captain A M Simreen, CEO of MICCO, said: '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.'
Andre Blech, head of Operations & Service Delivery at Etihad Cargo said: 'Thanks to our new digital technology platform launched in October 2018, those RFS services are now available for our customers to book directly online through the Etihad Cargo web booking portal.
'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.'
