Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has facilitated trade between Vietnam and the rest of the world through its cargo flights to the country. Over the last 15 years, the air cargo carrier has gradually scaled up its operations from modest beginnings as an offline carrier to its current position with multiple daily cargo flights from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
The air cargo carrier has helped Vietnamese exporters of commodities such as fruits and vegetables identify and reach out to new export markets and customers around the world through its global destination network spanning six continents. With the growth of the manufacturing industry in the country over the past decade, Emirates SkyCargo has also played an important role in the rapid uplift and global distribution of high-tech consumer items, fashion and sportswear manufactured in the country. More recently, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Emirates SkyCargo has been helping transport medical supplies manufactured in Vietnam.
