Volga Dnepr Airlines Transport 40 Ton Alstom Pump
One of the world’s leading air cargo transportation companies for the movements of oversized and super heavy cargo, Volga Dnepr Airlines recently worked in conjunction with Kintetsu World Express France (KWE) to professionally orchestrate a transportation project of an 11,000 horsepower Alstom motorized pump from Paris-Vatry, France, to Damman, Saudi Arabia.
The pump that measured 651 x 274 x 311cm and weighed over 40 tons was transported on-board a Volga Dnepr An-124-100 ramp aircraft. From the initial charter request from the customer to the cargo being on-board and ready for flight was just seven days.
Specialized load planning teams from Volga Dnepr advised in advance of the flight date the correct preparation and procedure for the shipment.
Volga Dnepr Airlines Deputy Commercial Director, Ekaterina Andreeva had this to say about the project, “This transportation showcases the benefits of airfreight solutions over other logistics modes, as we were able to deliver this essential spare part back to Saudi Arabia faster than other transport companies. The whole delivery took 6 hours and 45 minutes whereas with sea freight transportation the customer would have waited 20+ days. Our experience and efficiency in handling every charter request as well as the expertise of the commercial team give Volga Dnepr a unique advantage in the market.”
