Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has launched Emirates Delivers - a new e-commerce delivery platform that allows customers shopping from multiple online retailers in the US to consolidate their purchases and have the goods delivered to a home or office address.
The delivery platform is targeted for individual customers and small businesses who regularly shop online for their personal or business needs.
The e-commerce fulfillment platform is open for use by other e-commerce businesses and logistics integrators.
Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo, said, "The e-commerce industry has grown by more than 150% in the last five years and Emirates SkyCargo is the first international cargo airline in the world to develop a dedicated e-commerce delivery platform."
To use Emirates Delivers, customers have to register their accounts at www.emiratesdelivers.com. Upon completion, members are assigned a unique and free Emirates Delivers mailing address in the USA from where they can have their packages delivered to a designated address in the UAE.
To celebrate the launch of Emirates Delivers, Emirates SkyCargo is offering a 15% discount on shipping charges, valid until 30 November 2019.
