RUSSIA's AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has transported a 37.5 tonne vessel part from Frankfurt to Singapore, marking its heaviest shipment to-date at eight-metres long and required trucking from the Belgian factory of maritime construction company Jan De Nul Group.
A spokesman for the carrier said that 'despite challenging weather conditions' in Frankfurt, including strong winds and rain, the loading procedures were completed as planned, London's Air Cargo News reported.
The carrier's abcXL specialists and Frankfurt airport operations team ensured that the shipment - weighing a total of 40 tonnes after build-up - was securely loaded on to a Boeing 747 freighter on behalf of freight forwarder Ziegler.
The abcXL team completed all the arrangements and gained the necessary confirmations for the transportation within six days from the initial customer request to the booking stage, including organising all essential operational staff and equipment.
ABC general director Sergey Lazarev stated: 'This is the all-time record shipment weight for our company and, as we celebrate our 15th anniversary year, it is another demonstration of our expertise and delivery capabilities. We are delighted that our customers value our network of dedicated abcXL staff and hubs.'
