With operations geared to begin soon, Ethiopian Airlines commenced the construction of a modern e-commerce cargo service center worth $50 million. This is in line with the group’s vision to become a logistics hub for Africa’s growing e-commerce market.

Girma Wake, Chairman of the Board of Ethiopian Airlines Group noted that the airline is the largest in Africa in terms of cargo services and follows a modern system to maintain its competitiveness in the world. As the growth of digital marketing in the world diminished the demand for regular cargo service and expanded that of e-commerce freight provision, the airline saw it fit to follow the trend. 

According to Girma, the new cargo operation could take up to 7 days less than the previous system did. The 15,000 square meters platform will reportedly start providing services in the middle of the coming year 2023.
