Aramex joins 'care by air' humanitarian initiative
Aramex has joined a number of prominent aviation companies in supporting Care by Air – a logistics-related humanitarian initiative that provides services to relief and humanitarian organisations at cost.
Aramex is the latest high profile name to put its full support behind Care by Air, which was founded by Maximus Air, Etihad and Abu Dhabi Airports Company in 2009.
It will utilise its resources and extensive expertise to support the initiative.
“We are delighted to welcome Aramex into the Care by Air family,” said Fathi Hilal Buhazza, CEO of Maximus Air, who conceptualised, initiated and co-founded the ground-breaking initiative.
“Care by Air will benefit considerably from Aramex’ strong global network, worldwide presence and logistics expertise in order to improve the effectiveness of the programme.”
Emphasising the importance of this partnership, Raji Hattar, Aramex’ chief sustainability officer stated: “Our collaboration with our partners in the Care by Air initiative is in recognition of our shared common goals and is driven by our belief that we can accomplish a lot more through sustained engagement that brings public and private partners together to support a noble cause.”
Care by Air’s aim is to address the costs and effectiveness of transportation and logistics requirements of relief organisations.
Through the scheme, leading air cargo airlines, logistics companies and aviation suppliers companies help improve the lives of millions by either donating empty space on flights at cost, waiving handling, landing or parking fees or discounting fuel prices.
