ABC transports 500th aircraft engine in 2018

20 / 08 / 2018

AirBridgeCargo (ABC) has transported its 500th aircraft engine in 2018, a 50% increase year on year.

ABC said that fact it has already transported 500 engines in 2018 is a testament to its abcXL product.

ABC global director, heavy & outsized cargo Vasily Zhukov said: “We have strengthened our position in the aerospace segment of the air cargo market, realigning our procedures, working with trustworthy and reliable handling and trucking partners, and training our personnel to guarantee smooth and intact delivery of aircraft engines.

“We have also introduced the latest 3D modelling software tools to enhance load planning and to minimise the time required for ground handling procedures.”

ABC added that its abcXL product has also benefitted from the introduction of its control tower monitoring service last year.

Monitoring includes all important shipment records; the technical condition of the aircraft, temperature settings and changes, shock sensing data, and weather forecasting, to name but a few.
