Emirates SkyCargo invests in developing the next generation of cargo leaders

Bespoke training programme rolled out to select Emirates SkyCargo employees will equip them with the commercial and leadership skills for future success

Emirates SkyCargo has implemented a bespoke training programme designed to equip the cargo leaders of tomorrow with the commercial and leadership skillset for future success.

As the logistics industry faces a lack of skilled workforce, Emirates SkyCargo aims to create opportunities for growth within its operations, inspiring employees across all levels to develop their career with the airline.

Split into two groups of 16, the candidates are handpicked from Emirates SkyCargo’s pool of high performing cargo managers and include both Emirati Nationals as well as other nationalities from the airline’s outstations.

The 15 day programme includes six sessions, focussed on proactive preparation and strategic optimization of current and future operations, including the groundbreaking use of artificial intelligence (AI), embedding innovation at every touchpoint and tangible sustainability approaches.

Throughout all sessions, the participants are supported with an all-encompassing business coaching program.

The candidates will graduate with a diploma endorsed by AviationNOW, a member of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA), the organization representing and uniting all facets of the air cargo industry.

Nadeem Sultan, Senior Vice President of Cargo Planning and Freighters, Emirates SkyCargo said, “Implementing this Executive Leadership Programme is a crucial step on our long-term strategic roadmap, ensuring we foster the outstanding talent within our commercial operations to take the helm of Emirates SkyCargo to greater heights in the future.

“Creating an environment of development and providing continuous opportunities for learning contributes to the long tenure of Emirates SkyCargo staff, and helps us attract the best talent in the industry, despite the challenging environment.”

To deliver the Executive Leadership course, Emirates SkyCargo has partnered with AviationNOW, the aviation arm of the GrowNOW Group.
