Carrier springs into action to keep gas plant going

CargoLogicAir positioned extra aircrew in Rome to help move an urgent shipment for an industrial gas plant. The UK-based all-cargo carrier was responding to call to shift 96 tonnes of adsorbents from Leonardo Da Vinci Fiumicino International Airport to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on board its 747 freighter on behalf of DHL Global Forwarding.
CargoLogicAir chief commercial officer, Steve Harvey, said: “As the shipment was urgently required in Saudi Arabia, we sent an extra crew to Rome to avoid any delay due to crew rest in Italy and improve the overall delivery time. As soon as the cargo arrived at the airport from Milan we were able to complete the loading quickly ahead of the four-hour flight to Jeddah. This is a good example of how we can be responsive and flexible to meet our customers’ charter requirements.”
