- Leveraging a network of assets and people, UPS flexes its global smart logistics network to maintain record service levels during DXB runway closure.
Dubai, UAE, May 01, 2019: UPS (NYSE: ) announces a temporary new route for its largest aircraft - the Boeing 747-8F freighter that landed for the first time today in Dubai World Central airport (DWC). With the strategic investment of 28 new 747-8 jumbo jets, UPS offers sustainable lift on long-range international routes with a greater payload and a reduction of fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
UPS recognizes its excellent relationship with UAE and Dubai Airports along with the UAE’s position as a strategic international hub.
In anticipation of the 45-day long renovation of the southern runway at Dubai International (DXB), UPS has been hard at work to ensure a smooth contingency plan whilst maintaining excellent service levels. With the ongoing support of various airport partners and a focus on connecting flight to flight with great efficiency, the time in transit delivery announced to customers was successfully maintained and in some cases enhanced.
As the official logistics partner of Expo 2020, UPS has the expertise and agility to turn challenges into opportunities.
