Embraer and Correios to optimise air services

Embraer and Correios have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to optimise and expand air cargo transportation in Brazil and abroad.

The aircraft manufacturer and Brazil’s state-controlled postal company will conduct joint studies to increase Correios’ efficiency in air transport and reduce operational costs.

They will also evaluate new business models using Embraer’s platforms including the E-190F, E-195F and the C-390 Millennium.

Remodelling Correios’ air network is part of its modernisation project, Correios do Futuro (Correios of the Future).

Fabiano Silva dos Santos, President of Correios, says, “With this partnership, we will be able to bring more efficiency to our logistics network and thus benefit the Brazilian population, which is our greatest mission as a public company and representative of the federal government. We are the largest air cargo operators in the country; no other logistics company has even half the airlines and cargo handled by Correios.”

Bosca da Costa Junior, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security, adds, “We are very pleased to collaborate with Correios in studying a more efficient logistics network for the transport of goods, both in Brazil and internationally. Embraer has a consolidated aircraft portfolio, and the solutions to be studied together will allow Correios to expand its service offering to its customers with high reliability and efficiency.”
