Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics, which operates 9 ultra-modern Boeing 777 Freigthers, each with 100 tons uplift capacity, is facilitating trade flow between Africa and the rest of the world, thereby contributing to the economic development of the continent.

“In particular, it is playing an important role in the success of the China One Belt One Road Initiative by availing critical air infrastructure that is boosting cargo export and import between Africa and China. I wish to thank all my colleagues at Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics for this well- deserved recognition and encourage them to work even harder to support Africa’s economic transformation.”

Ethiopian won this award for the second time in a row outperforming competitor airlines by transporting 38,800 tons of import and export cargo to/and from Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou in 2018 alone.
