The Linfox-owned Armaguard Group – an Australia-based cash logistics, currency management and precious cargo company – and Etihad Airways have formed a joint venture to transport valuable goods around the globe. The partnership will see Armaguard establish a presence in Abu Dhabi under its ACM brand – the brand used as the international face of Australian Armaguard services – known in Abu Dhabi as ACM UAE. “This new joint venture allows Etihad to enhance our growing global air freight business by leveraging the ground transport and security expertise of Armaguard to offer a new service for our freight customers across our extensive global network,” said Etihad Airways CEO James Hogan. “The ability to transport precious cargo including jewellery, precious stones, gold, and artworks is an important next step for our cargo business – particularly given Abu Dhabi’s growing reputation as a capital for arts and culture, with worldfamous organisations like the Louvre and the Guggenheim in the pipeline.
