CargoLogic Germany B737-400F
Freighter operator CargoLogicGermany (CLG) has entered the animal transportation market with the movement of two horses on a flight organised by Intradco Global.
Two racehorses, Cindy Truppo and Ole Bo, weighing 500 kg each, became the first horses to be flown by the 2019 launched CLG when one of its B737-400SF transported them from Berlin (Germany) to Deauville (France).
The horses were transported on specifically designed collapsible stalls and were accompanied by a groom.
Before being able to transport horses, the airline needed to be licensed and ensure it could meet various animal (AVI) transport regulations.
CLG chief executive Dirk Naether said: “This is a milestone in our company’s development as we have significantly expanded our product portfolio with the receipt of the license to transport live animals.
“After successful completion of staff training, alignment of operation procedures in line with the EU regulation 01/2005, the national regulations in Germany and IATA LAR, and building of effective relations with dedicated stakeholders to handle AVI, CLG has been granted the respective license issued by the responsible authority for Northern Saxony. We hope that our customers will benefit from our current capabilities, especially given the demand for high-quality AVI transportation across Europe and beyond.”
Charlie McMullen, Intradco Global director, added: “This is great to have CLG as our supplier when it comes to horses transportation by air. We are impressed with service delivery, timely responses and their willingness to develop out-of-the-box solutions. We are also glad to have new Berlin Brandenburg Airport added to our expanding network of airport where we can handle horses shipments. And big thanks to the ground team for their great work to make that happen”.
Leipzig-hubbed CLG, which received its AOC in September 2019, has been focusing on air cargo in Germany and central Europe, in addition to extended global support for the express delivery sector.
