Volga-Dnepr Transport Huge Crank to Mumbai
One of the world’s leading air cargo transportation companies for the movements of oversized and super heavy cargo, Volga-Dnepr Airlines recently transported a crankshaft from Apodaca in Mexico to Mumbai in India using their IL-76TD-90VD aircraft.
The 38-tonne shipment was chartered by DHL Global Forwarding and was packed in a 7-meter box along with other auxiliary equipment required for loading.
Just 12 hours after receiving the initial order cargo professionals from Volga-Dnepr devised several options for the customer regarding loading and packaging. Due to the pro-active nature of Volga-Dnepr, the lead-time for the uplift was significantly reduced.
Volga-Dnepr Charter Cargo Operations Deputy Commercial Director, Ekaterina Andreeva explained, “The transportation of this crankshaft is another demonstration of our commitment to our customers in the energy and heavy machinery sector. With our expertise in the transportation of oversized cargo, our specialized equipment and our experience in meeting tight schedules, we were able to operate this Apodaca to Mumbai flight efficiently. Our unique ramp-loading IL-76TD-90VD freighter is equipped with on-board cranes and winches which facilitate optimized loading. Our aircraft, equipped with modern engines and unrestricted for global operations, secure extended opportunities for us to satisfy the market demands of the energy sector.”
With over 28-years’ experience, Volga-Dnepr Airlines is well versed in the transportation of super-heavy and oversized project cargo originating from various industries, such as the energy and heavy machinery sectors.
