A new Sea-Air Logistics Model Agreement was signed on Thursday, March 03, 2022, by Ethiopian Airlines, Air Djibouti, the Djibouti International Free Trade Zone (DIFTZ), and Société de Gestion du Terminal à Conteneurs de Doraleh (SGTD), as per Walta News Agency.
The agreement is expected to improve regional connections by employing an innovative multimodal transportation system developed by the Djibouti port and free zone authorities, as well as Air Djibouti and Ethiopian Airlines. The Sea-Air cargo initiative is twice as fast as sea-only shipping and twice as cheap as air-only transportation. This will greatly increase trade relations between the two countries, as well as between the African and Asian continents.
Furthermore, combining DPFZA’s port operations knowledge with that of the two airlines in a sea-air cargo scheme will help to harmonize policies and accelerate economic integration.
The agreement was witnessed by Ambassador Mohammed Hassen, Deputy Head of Mission at the Ethiopian Embassy, and Mr. Aboubaker Omar Hadi, Chairman of the Djibouti Port and Free Zone Authority.
