Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of the Etihad Aviation Group, received two awards at the STAT Times International Awards for Excellence in Cargo gala award ceremony held at Air Cargo India, Mumbai, on 1 June, 2022.
Etihad Cargo was highly acclaimed in the Fastest Growing International Cargo Airline of the Year category, which recognises an exceptional cargo airline that has achieved significant growth despite the challenges the industry has faced over the last two years. Latha Narayan, Etihad Cargo's Director – Commercial APAC, Australasia and Indian Subcontinent, received the Air Cargo Woman Leader of the Year award in recognition of her exemplary leadership skills and outstanding results.
Held every two years, the STAT Times International Awards for Excellence in Cargo are decided based on two rounds of online voting by STAT Trade Times magazine readers. Following suggestions from the readers for each category, the top five nominations are shared and voting is opened for readers to pick their top company or individual, making winners a true choice of the industry.
"Etihad Cargo is honoured to be recognised for its achievements at the STAT Times International Awards for Excellence in Cargo," said Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Cargo, Etihad Aviation Group. "These awards demonstrate Etihad Cargo's agility, resilience and commitment to working closely with partners and customers at the height of the pandemic and beyond.
"2021 saw Etihad Cargo launching new technologies, investing in more sustainable solutions, enhancing the carrier's specialised premium pharmaceutical product, PharmaLife, and playing an instrumental role in transporting life-saving vaccines and medications around the world. These achievements wouldn’t have been possible if not for the dedication and hard work of the entire Etihad Cargo team, and I would like to congratulate Latha for receiving an individual award that recognises her individual contribution. Looking to the future, Etihad Cargo will continue to provide the highest quality of compliant air solutions for its customers around the world to remain their air cargo partner of choice."
