When our air freight team in Frankfurt receives an urgent order that requires ad-hoc delivery of goods, they respond right away. That is nothing new.

However, just recently, our air freight specialists created a logistics solution for an oog piece: a machinery spare part weighing approximately 12 tons and having a diameter of more than four meters had to be shipped from the factory in Germany to Minnesota, USA, within a very short time frame. The customer: a renowned manufacturer of industrial equipment for the mining industry. The solution: chartering an Antonov 124. The particular: from receiving an inquiry to the actual delivery only 2.5 working days passed.

Always keeping an eye on time, we realized detailed transport concepts for the pre- and main carriage.

Because of the dimensions of the machinery part, the shipment was too bulky for a 'regular cargo aircraft'.

With a special logistics solution, we managed to comply with the maximum allowed dimensions for road haulage.
