Vietnam | History, Population, Map, & Facts - Agriculture, forestry, and fishing


Encyclopedia Britannica

Vietnam - Agriculture, forestry, and fishing: Agriculture is fading as the most important economic sector in Vietnam. Although agriculture still employs more than half of the population and manufacturing accounts for a mere 8 percent of all employment, the output value of both manufacturing and services surpassed that of agriculture in the early 1990s. Yet, agriculture is the main source of raw materials for the processing industries and a major contributor to exports; by the late 1980s Vietnam was again exporting rice after years of shortages. Permanent cultivation covers large areas of the country’s lowlands and smaller portions of the highlands. The primary agricultural areas are

Emirates SkyCargo offers enhanced protection for pharmaceutical cargo with launch of pharma corridors

by @ Emirates SkyCargo's pressreleases

Dubai, UAE, 22 January 2018- Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has stepped up its commitment to securely transport temperature sensitive pharmaceutical shipments with the introduction of pharma corridors offering  additional protection across selected stations in its network for pharmaceutical cargo.

Emirates SkyCargo is working with ground handling partners and other stakeholders at multiple cities across its global network in order to ensure that handling operations for pharmaceuticals at these stations are uniform and comply with Emirates SkyCargo’s stringent norms for pharma transport as well as with either EU Good Distribution Practices (GDP) or IATA Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) pharma guidelines. Emirates SkyCargo will therefore be able to provide a supplementary protection of product integrity during transport of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical cargo through these cities.

In 2016, Emirates SkyCargo’s operations at its hub in Dubai including its dual cargo terminals at Dubai International Airport, Dubai World Central and the interconnecting trucking operations were certified as compliant to EU GDP guidelines by Bureau Veritas, Germany. Operating the largest GDP certified multi-airport hub in the world, Emirates SkyCargo offers round the year secure transportation of pharmaceutical cargo at its hub in Dubai. The introduction of pharma corridors with a focus on non-hub handling activities allows it to go one step further for the protection for pharma cargo.

Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo said: “As a customer focused organisation, we have been listening to feedback from stakeholders in the global pharmaceutical industry. We realised that it was essential to work with our partners on the ground at the various stations in order to ensure that pharmaceutical cargo travels under the best conditions not only through our state of the art facilities in Dubai and when onboard our modern aircraft, but right from the point the cargo gets dropped off at the origin airport until it is collected at the destination airport. We are also actively exploring the roll out of dedicated pharma flights across our network. Emirates SkyCargo constantly strives to offer the best solutions for our customers.”

Watch a video of how pharma cargo transits through Emirates SkyCargo’s hub in Dubai.

The first 12 stations in Emirates SkyCargo’s pharma corridors are spread across three continents and include Amsterdam, Brussels, Bengaluru, Cairo, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Milan, Rome, Shanghai and Singapore.

The rollout of pharma corridors was led by pharma specialists in the Emirates SkyCargo team working in coordination with cargo service delivery teams and ground handlers locally at stations. In addition to enhanced training provided to staff handling pharmaceutical cargo at the stations, the team also undertook a number of engagement and qualification visits in order to prepare for the rollout. Further cities are expected to be added over the course of the year.

Emirates SkyCargo’s pharma corridors enhance its Emirates Pharma air transportation solution. The air cargo carrier has also invested in developing White Cover thermal blankets in addition to innovative containers such as the Emirates SkyCargo Cool Dolly or the White Container to guarantee that lifesaving medicines travelling through its network are not compromised. Emirates SkyCargo has a fleet of over 50 cool dollies dedicated to pharma cargo. The carrier also works with leading container rental services across the globe to ensure that customers have the widest choice of products and solutions to meet their requirements.  Emirates SkyCargo operates to over 155 destinations across six continents and operates a fleet of over 265 aircraft including 14 freighters.

Emirates SkyCargo wraps up 2017 on a positive note

by @ Emirates SkyCargo's pressreleases

Dubai, UAE, 10 Jan 2018- Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, completed a year of strong growth in 2017. The air cargo carrier’s robust performance, set against the backdrop of a resurgent global air cargo market, was underlined by the introduction of specialised customer focused air transportation solutions across a number of industry verticals and by continued investment in infrastructure.

Between January and December 2017, Emirates SkyCargo’s hubs at Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC) saw a combined cargo throughput of over 2.5 million tonnes.

Specialised, Innovative products and solutions

In response to increasing demand from its customers, Emirates SkyCargo introduced a range of air transport solutions specific to industry verticals including Emirates Pharma, Emirates Wheels and Emirates Fresh.

Emirates Pharma, developed for the secure transportation of temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals from origin to destination has been extremely well received by pharma customers worldwide. Volumes of pharmaceutical cargo travelling through Emirates SkyCargo have grown by 38% since launch.  Emirates SkyCargo also worked with DuPont on developing a new thermal cover called White Cover Xtreme, offering enhanced protection for cargo in hot, cold and wet weather conditions. Emirates SkyCargo operates world class EU GDP certified facilities at its hub in Dubai to ensure secure transportation of life saving medicines and treatment.

Emirates Fresh has helped producers around the world transport fruits, vegetables, flowers and other perishables including fresh fish and meat. In 2017 Emirates SkyCargo transported over 285,000 tonnes of perishables across its network. In February Emirates SkyCargo unveiled a unique rose decal on one of its freighter aircraft to highlight the importance of air cargo to the floriculture industry.

With the introduction of Emirates Wheels, Emirates SkyCargo has been transporting close to 150 cars a month not only in the peak summer season, but throughout the year. In addition to individual customers, the air cargo carrier has worked with major car manufacturers and distributors to transport premium and luxury cars.

With its focus on structured and customised offerings, Emirates SkyCargo is well positioned to further address customer needs in 2018 in other sectors including e-commerce.

Industry partnerships

In May 2017, Emirates SkyCargo entered into a first of its kind strategic operational partnership with Cargolux.  The two carriers started working together on a number of operational areas including block space and interline, aircraft charter and hub connectivity. In October Emirates SkyCargo and Cargolux announced a code share agreement for cargo. Emirates SkyCargo has had one Cargolux Boeing 747 freighter aircraft chartered full time since June 2017.

In the UAE, Emirates SkyCargo signed an MoU with Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre to become the space science centre’s preferred partner.  In the e-commerce segment, the air cargo carrier entered into an understanding with Dubai CommerCity to develop new solutions for the global e-commerce industry and to strengthen Dubai’s position as a global hub for e-commerce.

Capacity and network

In addition to offering belly hold cargo capacity on its fleet of 254 wide body passenger aircraft, Emirates SkyCargo also offers freighter capacity on its fleet of 13 Boeing 777-Fs and one Boeing 747-400ERF. In 2017, Emirates SkyCargo’s fleet of freighters transported cargo to more than 140 destinations including scheduled and charter operations. 

In addition to commencing scheduled freighter services to Luxembourg in June 2017, the air cargo carrier also increased frequency of freighter services to Hong Kong from 22 to 26 flights a week. Unique cargo transported onboard Emirates’ freighters included horses, luxury cars, boats, heavy equipment and aircraft engines. 

Emirates SkyCargo facilitates global trade flows by transporting cargo across six continents and over 155 destinations. Freighters from the Emirates SkyCargo fleet connect over 40 scheduled destinations across the globe.

Accolades

Emirates SkyCargo is committed to excellence in service delivery and this was acknowledged in a number of industry forums. Some of the awards that Emirates SkyCargo won this year included the ‘Best Cargo Airline Middle East’ award at the annual Cargo Airline of the Year 2017 awards organised in London by Air Cargo News; ‘Best Air Cargo Carrier- Middle East’ at the 2017 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards held in Singapore by Asia Cargo News; and the prestigious DHL Carrier Award for Reliability and Excellence (DHL CARE) for pharma in Singapore in June 2017.
