Cainiao, the Alibaba logistics arm, today continued its rapid international network expansion by agreeing to ship parcels with Emirates SkyCargo, the world’s largest cargo airline, through Dubai under its strategy of enabling global deliveries within 72 hours. The Middle East’s leading cargo airport is one of five future global hubs recently named by the Chinese e-commerce logistics operator. The others are Hangzhou in China (the home of Alibaba), Kuala Lumpur (where Alibaba is developing an Asian trade hub), Liège in Belgium and Moscow (already served by regular charter flights).
