‘Greater demand for perishables from southern India to EU & North America’

“We see that there is a greater demand for perishables from southern Indian points to Europe and North America. However, capacity for the mentioned points are constrained,” says Chaminda Perera, Head of Cargo, SriLankan Cargo
“The carrier operates daily to India, with over 50 weekly flights. We serve nine points including main destinations such as Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai covering both the North and South regions. We contribute to the Indian air freight market by carrying pharma, courier and general cargo out of India and e-commerce freight into India for the northern and central Indian markets whilst uplifting perishable produce out of the southern region. We have been a strong connector of Indian and Japanese markets supporting both directions,” he adds.
