The awards, formerly known as the IFW (International Freighting Weekly) Awards, recognise excellence in the freight and logistics industry. 

This is the sixth time that Emirates SkyCargo has won the award, having previously received the honour in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010. Emirates SkyCargo beat off competition from five other carriers, namely British Airways World Cargo, Cargolux, Lufthansa Cargo, Air France/KLM Cargo and Virgin Atlantic Cargo. 

The "Air Cargo Carrier of the Year" is a reader voted category award, in which Lloyds Loading List.com invites shippers and freight forwarders from around the globe to cast their vote and select those carriers and operators which, over the past year, in their opinion had provided the best quality service. 

Emirates flies on a daily schedule from Malta to Dubai via Larnaka, Cyprus. Emirates SkyCargo is located on the First Floor at MIA Departures and can be contacted on tel. no 21660102, or at [email protected].
