Embraer and Correios sign MoU for optimization studies in air cargo transport

Embraer and Correios, Brazil’s state-controlled postal company, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) focused on air cargo transport. Both companies will conduct joint studies to advance the optimization and expansion of the Brazilian and international air networks for large cargo and goods.

The strategic partnership between the companies will seek to increase Correios’ efficiency in air transport and reduce operation costs compared to other modes. It will also evaluate challenges and opportunities for new business models involved in Embraer platforms, such as the E-190F, E-195F, and C-390 Millennium.

“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,” says Fabiano Silva dos Santos, President of Correios. The executive also stresses that the remodeling of the state-owned company’s air network is part of the company’s modernization project, Correios do Futuro (Correios of the Future).

“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,” said Bosco da Costa Junior, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security.

Embraer is on schedule to complete its first conversion from E-Jet to a cargo version of the aircraft, having already successfully completed the first flight test. Embraer currently has two contracts for converting up to 20 E-Jets into freighters.
