A virtual tour of the new Emirates<.> SkyCargo Centre at the airline`s Dubai hub is just one of the major new features of the Emirates cargo division`s new website.

The new website – which has just gone live – provides users with more information about products and services, simpler navigation, greater transparency of cargo operations and a free screensaver to download. It has been produced by the Emirates Group`s Corporate Communications department in liaison with Emirates SkyCargo`s marketing unit.

The URL is the same: This is the Emirates SkyCargo`s marketing site. It offers easy access at the touch of a button to, the division`s operational site, plus access to all other sites in the Emirates Group.

The look and feel of the new website is cool and elegant with clear layout and fonts. The home page features SkyChain, the division`s state-of-the-art logistics and information management system; the screensaver, which highlights the awards three years in a row of the Cargo Airline of the Year title from Air Cargo News; and Hyderabad, the latest addition to the route network.

The home page sets the style for the rest of the website. On each page a menu is provided at the left and a flash banner at the top highlights a different destination.

In addition, a tracking facility is provided at the top right-hand corner of every single page enabling customers to track shipments simply by keying in either an air waybill number or a Job Record Number (assigned to every booking record).

The site provides everything from the mission statement to details of the trucking system. Users have at their fingertips press releases, advertising campaigns, the quarterly newsletter, Cargo Update, and the tour of the Emirates SkyCargo Centre located in the Air Cargo Village at Dubai International Airport.

This groundbreaking facility has been designed specifically to handle the Emirates SkyCargo product and incorporates a number of innovative features such as the Telxon hand-held terminals which scan and send data by radio frequency.

Cargo Marketing Manager Prakash Nair said: We have tried to give as much information as possible to the customer and at the same time make the site attractive and easy to navigate. We have made our operations even more transparent, added more information on products and services and given prominence to SkyChain and new destinations.
