Speedy boarding on Volga-Dnepr
16 / 10 / 2018
Volga-Dnepr Airlines has organised the delivery of a 38-ton crankshaft from Mexico to India.
The flight from Apodaca to Mumbai was chartered by DHL Global Forwarding, with the shipment packaged in a 7-metre long box alongside some support equipment required for loading.
Within 12 hours of receiving the request, Volga-Dnepr’s logistics specialists developed several loading and packaging options for the customer. This quick response, and Volga Dnepr’s ability to provide a bespoke cargo platform for the required weight distribution, reduced the lead-time for the uplift.
Ekaterina Andreeva, deputy commercial director, Volga-Dnepr Charter Cargo Operations, said: “Our unique ramp-loading IL-76TD-90VD freighter is equipped with onboard cranes and winches which facilitate optimised loading.”
For the first nine months of 2018, Volga-Dnepr has recorded an increase of 6% in cargo transportation for the energy and heavy machinery industry.
