Cathay’s Nepal team wins award for cargo uplift

Cargo team recognised by the industry for uplift on Cathay Dragon flights

Cathay Pacific Cargo’s team was recognised by the Nepal Freight Forwarders’ Association for the highest tonnage uplift in 2017.

The Kathmandu Cargo office recorded spectacular double-digit growth in uplift in 2017, and the bulk of export shipments were in the form of carpets, handicrafts, cotton materials – and even dog chews. The majority of shipments were bound for the US and mainland China via Hong Kong.

Cathay Dragon Nepal Country Lead and Sales & Marketing Manager, Junu Maleku and Assistant Manager Cargo, Yamuna Pradhanang collected the award from Nanda Kishor Pun, Vice President of Nepal at the ceremony, hosted at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kathmandu.

Junu said: ‘Kudos to our Kathmandu team, who were able to achieve this against some big competitors that operate more frequencies than Cathay Dragon.’

Kathmandu is served by a three-times-weekly service using Airbus A330 aircraft.

The award was presented at a gala event organised by the Nepal Freight Forwarders’ Association. Junu added: ‘I’m proud of the team and their tremendous efforts and hard work to bring home such a prestigious award.’
