Qatar Airways Cargo has announced the launch of QR Express, a solution which is planned to deliver an airport-to-airport air freight service for time critical shipments.
QR Express is expected to provide customers with the opportunity to book time-sensitive shipments via a system that offers high boarding priority and rapid handling. Other key features are expected to include short and flexible close-outs, quick and dedicated ramp transfer (for express transit), as well as priority loading at origin and unloading at final destination and speedy retrieval at final destination (approximately 90mins).
Ulrich Ogiermann, Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, said of the announcement, “We are delighted to launch our QR Express service.” Adding, “We are committed to meeting our customers’ demand for the services they need, by investing in sophisticated technology, and a team of highly qualified staff. This new product enables our customers to ship time-sensitive cargo with the knowledge that transit time will be minimised. It will be an ideal solution for supply chain process and fast moving consumable goods.”
To date, Qatar Airways Cargo offers a number of products including QR Pharma, QR Fresh and QR Equine, which are expected to ensure efficiency and compliance in the handling of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical and perishable cargo, as well as professional care and service to shipment of horses and other live animals. The cargo airline also offers QR Charter, utilising its freighter fleets comprised of Boeing B777, Airbus A330 freighters and Boeing B747-400BCF heavy cargo aircraft.
