Emirates SkyCargo partners with Krix

Emirates SkyCargo has partnered with Krix, a family-owned South Australian business specialising in cinema and home-theatre speakers.

Emirates SkyCargo has created growth opportunities for Krix, allowing it to gain access to new markets in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe and grow its revenue while putting Australian products on the global stage.

Before its partnership with Emirates SkyCargo, exports made up 30% of Krix’s revenue. Today, export revenue has increased to approximately half of turnover. Krix has now supplied sound systems for more than 3,500 cinemas across the world, including over 300 and expectations of another 200 in the Middle East over the next two years.

“Being able to access the Emirates SkyCargo’s global network with its hub in Dubai has become an important factor in our growth over the past three to four years. We’ve been able to reach new customers throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Europe while supporting jobs in the Adelaide region,” said Ashley Krix, Commercial Cinema Sales Director of Krix.

Krix has exported its products to destinations such as Kuwait, Oman, Egypt, Lebanon, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Belfast and Oslo.

Emirates SkyCargo is an important facilitator of Australian exports. In 2017-18, the air cargo carrier transported close to 50,000 t of exports from Australia including perishables such as meat, seafood, fruits and vegetables as well as pharmaceuticals. Over the last five years, the carrier has moved more than a quarter million tonnes of exports from the country.

Emirates SkyCargo’s products are backed by modern infrastructure and equipment including over 25,000 sq m of dedicated temperature controlled storage space at two cargo terminals in Dubai and a fleet of Emirates Pharma and Emirates Fresh cool dollies which provide temperature protection for cargo when being transported on the ramp from the aircraft to the cargo terminal. The carrier also has a fleet of trucks, including reefer trucks, operating 24*7 between Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central.
