EFL Global’s ePlane prototype at Dubai Expo 2020


A global leader in freight forwarding, EFL Global worked with Ubifly Tecnologies Pvt Ltd in India to offer logistics solutions for an innovative flying taxi under the brand The ePlane Company. The project stemmed from our futuristic vision to work with companies who aim to provide sustainable solutions to global challenges. As The ePlane Company recognizes the necessity of providing affordable carbon neutral aviation solutions to accelerate the adaptation of urban aerial transportation, EFL Global was excited to work with them as sustainability and innovation are at the core of its operations.    

The first phase of the project oversaw the transportation of The ePlane Company’s valuable lab-scale prototype from Chennai, India to the Dubai Expo, 2020 and returned to India under Carnet. The expert handling of EFL Global’s Project Logistics Team ensured preliminary planning, with proven expertise and active supervision of the task. The high-value cargo was transported from Chennai to Nhava Sheva Port by road, and onwards to Dubai by sea. Reverse logistics were mapped similarly. EFL’s team handled the packaging of the prototype as well as the loading operations and transportation from Jebel Ali to the Dubai Expo 2020 site location. The close coordination of EFL’s project logistics experts ensured that the optimal delivery routes were used to move the prototype while all security measures were taken during transportation and onsite delivery. Every step of the way, active supervision ensured that the cargo reached the destination safely, a testament to reliability, efficiency, and high level of service quality.  

As innovation has historically played a vital role in increasing efficiency at EFL, the company invests in becoming a leading organization in collaborating with stakeholders who are passionate about bringing about innovative and sustainable solutions to minimize the impact of industrial and commercial activity. EFL is delighted to have worked with a company in the electric aviation space who is revolutionizing urban mobility.
