Freighter manager Network Airline Management (NAM) has transported cars and equipment for the World Rally Championship (WRC) from Nairobi, Kenya to Liege, Belgium.

Utilising NAM’s regular scheduled B747F freighters from Nairobi to Liege, the flights were loaded with several Hyundai and Ford rally cars, tools, spares, and support equipment.

Peter Njambi, manager of cargo sales and customer service, at NAM’s Nairobi office, said: “In total, we moved 34 tonnes of rally cars and accessories, which is seven tonnes more than last year.

“This type of load demands proper planning and coordination from our teams, considering the urgency and sensitivity of this high-profile cargo.

“Our teams had to ensure the timings of the cars’ delivery were on point to allow them to be ready for the next rally event in Estonia.”
