Dubai: Emirates Transport Media Dept.
As part of its responsibilities towards its clients and employees, Emirates Transport (ET) continues to implement strict preventative procedures for all its operations and services in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Abdulla Alameri, Head of Operations for Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra, stated that ET has provided 209 vehicles and 274 drivers for the delivery of food products and commercial goods throughout the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
He added that, as part of its social responsibility, ET is proud to offer its support to the efforts of government agencies to combat the spread of the virus in the country by providing buses and drivers to implement 1,431 trips for the various government agencies.
Alameri added that despite the major drop in certain transport services, particularly to educational sector institutions such as schools, universities and Qur’an teaching centres, as well as the drop in transporting employees of some companies, ET saw an increase in demand in other areas such as cargo transport, food delivery services and transport for online commerce to meet the increasing demand for home delivery services due to the government’s stay at home policy.
The Head of Operations for Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra stated that the food transport vehicles provided by the company adhere to the best industry standards set by local and international regulatory authorities, adding that all of ET’s food transport vehicles use smart tracking systems that provide the driver with information and data.
He also stated that within the framework of achieving the highest safety standards, Emirates Transport works periodically to implement maintenance operations for refrigerated transport vehicles, in addition to coordinating with its customers to disinfect vehicles designated for transporting refrigerated food.
