Sri Lanka-based freight forwarder EFL has made Pittsburgh International Airport a cargo distribution point in conjunction with a nonstop freighter service operated by Qatar Airways Cargo.
EFL is aiming to capitalise on one of Qatar’s two weekly Boeing 777F into Pittsburgh which started just shy of two years ago. The company’s first 90-ton shipment started in May into Pittsburgh.
“Today’s announcement continues moving the airport corridor forward as a manufacturing and distribution hub. Congratulations to Christina and her team for this huge success for our region. As Pittsburgh strives to make additional connections to the global marketplace, this is a big step along that path,” said Allegheny County executive, Rich Fitzgerald.
