Etihad launches secure high tech service


Etihad Cargo has launched a SecureTech service for consumer electronics. It is the ninth addition to the carrier’s suite of premium products and is dedicated to the safe and secure transportation of consumer electronics, including mobile phones, laptops, tablets and other lithium battery-powered devices.

Products are monitored during the build-up and break-down of palettes in secure and controlled storage areas at the origin, during transit and at the destination. Constant surveillance is provided by security personnel or CCTV systems, ensuring only authorised personnel have access to shipments during transportation.

Etihad Cargo recently became the third Middle Eastern airline toachieve  IATA Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators Lithium Batteries (CEIV Li-batt) certification. It delivers training programmes to ensure teams are handling lithium batteries safely and securely and with the aid of a specifically designed acceptance checklist.

The carrier has seen a surge in demand for air cargo capacity for the transportation of consumer electronics, with a significant increase in the number of mobile phones from India.
