AirBridgeCargo Airlines has facilitated the transport of oversized 16-meter long busher equipment from Germany to China thanks to its 747-8F’s nose-loading capability.
The cargo weighed almost 16 tonnes and will be used to bolster a power transmission project.
AirBridgeCargo is part of Volga-Dnepr Group and partnered with TVS SCS / Pan Asia Logistics Germany for the project, which transported the cargo from Frankfurt to Zhengzhou.
The 747-8F’s loading features allowed for single-piece transportation without equipment dismantling.
“Every time we are entrusted to ship out-of-gauge cargo we feel privileged for gaining unique competences from our Volga-Dnepr colleagues as well as building a dedicated AirBridgeCargo XL team capable of handling any logistics challenge,” said AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ general director Nikolay Glushnev.
“We keep on expanding our network of XL online stations to enable flawless cargo journeys and ensure the availability of essential equipment, sophisticated airport and ground handling facilities and certified staff. On top of that, our nose-door loading capability guarantees speed and safety of the whole process and has been so far applied for more than 10 per cent of all XL shipments during the first eight months of 2020.”
