Emirates SkyCargo has been named Air Cargo Carrier of the Year for the sixth time at the 2012 Global Freight Awards.

The awards, formerly known as the IFW (International Freighting Weekly) awards, recognize 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, including 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.

"To win this prestigious award for a sixth time, and to be recognised directly by our customers in this way, is a great honour and a powerful endorsement of our focus and dedication to providing the highest levels of service," said Ram Menen, Emirates' Divisional Senior Vice President Cargo.
