ABC in top gear for Maserati Gran Turismo charter

08 / 11 / 2017

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has delivered twenty-eight new Maserati Gran Turismo vehicles on a Boeing 747 freighter.

The charter flight from Milan to Tokyo on behalf of Agility Logistics was operated from the largest airport in Milan, Malpensa, to Narita Airport with a stop at Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport.

The Maserati cars were handled by Alha Airport MXP and positioned securely onto double-deck car racks to ensure the efficient use of space and safe transportation.

ABC’s B747 proudly displayed Maserati branding for its eye-catching arrival in Tokyo, which was greeted by around 300 guests and media representatives waiting for the aircraft to taxi to its parking spot to commence unloading.

Sergey Lazarev, General Director of ABC, said: “This is a unique event as it gives each party involved the perfect opportunity to observe vehicle transportation procedures first-hand."

He added: "Our abcXL product was developed in close cooperation with our customers for such an operation to combine tried and tested principles with innovative ideas for efficient and reliable deliveries.”

In the first nine months of 2017, ABC transported over 45,000 tons of vehicles and automotive spare parts throughout its global network, a 24% year-on-year increase.
