- PRESS RELEASE
Royal Jordanian held an iftar banquet for its Jordanian cargo sales agents on August 14, in the presence of the RJ President/CEO Amer Hadidi, VP Cargo Muath Majali and several heads of departments and cargo staff members at RJ.
He said that RJ carries more than 60% of the global air cargo exported from Jordan and 40% of imported goods to the kingdom. He also pointed out that Queen Alia International Airport has become a freighting hub in the Middle East and also a transit point everywhere in the world. This is the result of Jordan's distinguished geographical location and the convenient logistics and infrastructure for air cargo.
Majali mentioned that in the first half of this year, the air cargo sector implemented various initiatives that aim at increasing sales and improving the services offered to customers.
Among these initiatives, the cargo terminal was recently upgraded to increase the cargo capacity, and the elevation transportation vehicles (ETV) that handle operation of shipments were overhauled. A new cargo system was introduced and a courier warehouse was recently established. In addition, the customs procedures have been improved, providing customers services around the clock.
Majali expressed optimism for the coming phase, saying it will be one of growth and improvement of the freight business, in spite of the political instability in the region and the global financial crisis. Added to these challenges are the increasing fuel prices and competitiveness, as new cargo carriers in the region have great impact on the business.
