Qatar Airways Cargo has launched a new cargo solution that is designed to offer optimum protection and secure storage for high-value and vulnerable shipments.
Key features of SecureLift 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.
Valuable shipments will also be moved in specialised containers and boxes for protection of the product, and kept in the strong-room with restricted access providing added security.
The temperature inside the strong-room is maintained between 20°C – 25°C. The specially trained SecureLift team also plays a key role by adhering to strict security protocols at every stage of the journey.
Products having high declared value like precious metals, stones, gold bullions, banknotes, jewellery or watches would fall under the Valuable category while commodities that carry a risk of pilferage like high-value electronics and newly launched products would fall under the Vulnerable category.
The cargo carrier transported over 9,000 tonnes of valuable and vulnerable cargo in 2022, including electronics, banknotes, art shipments and various sensitive commodities.
“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,” said Miguel Rodriguez Moreno, head of cargo products.
The carrier offers its customers a 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.
Digitalisation is a key pillar for the world’s leading cargo carrier and it enhances the service further as SecureLift shipments can be booked through Qatar Airways Cargo’s online platform, the Digital Lounge.
SecureLift has been launched under Qatar Airways Cargo’s VISION 2027 and Next Generation strategy.
