Moreover, Ethiopian Airlines is poised to further strengthen its cargo and logistics capabilities with the imminent inauguration of a cutting-edge e-commerce facility. This state-of-the-art facility will feature advanced elevating transfer vehicles and sorting machines, focusing exclusively on mail, courier, and e-commerce goods. With an impressive annual handling capacity of 150,000 tons, this facility promises to further elevate Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services to new heights.

As Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services continues its ascent, it reinforces its status as one of the Ethiopian Airlines Group’s principal strategic business units. Currently, it offers connectivity to over 130 international destinations worldwide, utilizing both belly-hold capacity and a fleet of 67 dedicated freighter services, including 15 dedicated freighter aircraft.
