Volga-Dnepr’s IL-76TD-90VD guarantees dedicated airlift for heavy machinery equipment

[ October 21, 2018   //   ]

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has organized the delivery of a crankshaft from Apodaca, Nuevo León, Mexico, to Mumbai, India.
The flight was chartered by DHL Global Forwarding for the 38-ton shipment, which had been packaged in a 7-meter long box alongside some support equipment required for loading.
Within 12 hours of receiving the request, Volga-Dnepr’s experienced logistics specialists developed several loading and packaging options for the customer. This promptness, and Volga Dnepr’s ability to provide a bespoke cargo platform for the required weight distribution reduced the lead-time for the uplift accordingly.
“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 onboard 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,” stated Ekaterina Andreeva, Deputy Commercial Director, Volga-Dnepr Charter Cargo Operations.
