Volga-Dnepr has successfully transported 16 tonnes of special liquid medical oxygen equipment onboard an Il-76TD-90VD aircraft.
The cargo was flown from Shanghai, China, to Mineralnye Vody, Russia, before being further transported to Nevinnomyssk – the construction site for a future plant built by Medical Oxygen.
Volga-Dnepr said its specialists have been working in close cooperation with its customer to map out possible delivery options, choosing the most appropriate aircraft type, dealing with terminal handling in the airport of origin and organising last-mile delivery from the airport of destination to Nevinnomyssk.
Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ commercial director Ekaterina Andreeva said: “The experience and expertise of our team enable us to expand our boundaries from air freight to more complex integrated logistics solutions.
“In the case of medical equipment transportation, there is no time to lose. Our structured relations with suppliers and in-depth understanding of each supply chain step allowed us to organise this transportation smoothly and effectively, paying particular attention to 120km last-mile delivery.
“For us, healthcare projects are a top priority as they are all part of our life-saving logistics strategy aimed at overcoming the pandemic and its consequences.”
