Under its VISION 2027 and Next Generation strategy, Qatar Airways Cargo has launched ‘SecureLift’, a solution that offers optimum protection and secure storage for high-value and vulnerable shipments.
Precious metals, stones, gold bullions, banknotes, jewellery or watches would fall under the ‘Valuable’ category, while commodities that carry a risk of pilferage such as high value electronics and newly-launched products would fall under the ‘Vulnerable’ category.
Key features of the SecureLift solution include high loading priority, close monitoring of shipments, inclusion of approved data loggers and shipment escorts, in addition to secure handling, transportation and storage of the product.
The cargo carrier transported over 9,000 tonnes of valuable and vulnerable cargo in 2022, including electronics, banknotes, art shipments, and various sensitive commodities.
Miguel Rodriguez Moreno, head of cargo products at Qatar Airways Cargo, said: “SecureLift embodies our unwavering commitment to meeting the unique needs of our valued customers.
“This service redefines safety and security standards for high-value and vulnerable shipments, showcasing our dedication to excellence, safety, and cutting-edge solutions.”
Valuable shipments are moved in specialised containers and boxes for protection of the product, and kept in the strong-room which is maintained between 20°C – 25°C with restricted access providing added security.
Qatar Airways Cargo offers its customers an extensive network of more than 150 destinations as part of its scheduled services, and can also provide part or full dedicated charters for SecureLift products to destinations not part of its network.
Furthermore, SecureLift shipments can be booked through Qatar Airways Cargo’s innovative online platform, the Digital Lounge, streamlining the booking process for customers.
