DSV: ‘a complex operation’ for generator move
23 / 05 / 2019
Global transport and logistics company DSV has moved a generator component on behalf of Siemens from Germany to Australia.
The piece, which was 6 m long and had a diameter of 3 m, weighed 40 tonnes, so DSV chartered an IL-76 freighter from Volga-Dnepr Airlines for the job.
The component was loaded onto the aircraft at Leipzig/Halle Airport and flown to Townsville in Australia.
DSV noted that airfreight was the only option given the narrow time frame of the delivery and the distance involved.
Per list, senior broker at DSV Project Denmark, described the project as “a complex operation successfully completed thanks to careful planning and excellent co-operation with Siemens, the recipient (Siemens’ customer) and between our own project transport teams in Germany, Australia and Denmark”.
