Maximus Air will launch a brand new one-stop-shop in 2015. The new service will combine the Abu Dhabi-based air cargo specialists’ existing oversized cargo fleet with a global network of partners in offering a door-to-door delivery service for the first time.
According to Maximus CEO Mohamed Ebrahim Al Qassimi, the service will have a simple pricing structure and competitive rates. It will also cater to virtually any shipment size and is a conscious decision to diversify existing services, which currently revolves around large and heavy goods.
In addition, Al Qassimi said that creating the single-window service would satisfy customer and industry demand. The announcement was made just a few months after the latest Boeing World Air Cargo Forecast revealed the global air freight industry is set to grow 4.7 per cent a year until 2033.
“The Maximus philosophy has always been rooted in offering customers responsive, practical, and cost effective solutions that benefit from a personal and customer-friendly approach. As such, and in light of increasing demand, we plan to launch a brand new one-stop-shop next year. This will allow customers to send parcels of all shapes and sizes to and from their doorstep,” he explained.
“This is the first time Maximus will offer such a service and this is a key part of our strategy to grow and expand upon the success of our traditional business offering. Naturally oversized cargo will remain at the core of everything we do. However, once operational, the single window one-stop-shop will open new markets that complement the usual array of large cargo that we can transport.”
