The size and sensitivity of the outsized PCB equipment required Dimerco to oversee customised packing and fastening for freighter loading, and identify scheduled flights able to accommodate the cargo.
'Most airlines are not able to handle this size of cargo, with pieces ranging from three to nine metres in length, width or height. Because scheduled flights have been limited due to the global pandemic, these challenges might have led other transportation providers to opt for more costly chartered flights,' said a company spokesman.
'Dimerco leveraged its long-term strategic partnerships with selected airlines to provide the most cost-effective solution, securing space on four scheduled freighters from Luxembourg Airport to Shanghai Pudong International Airport,' he said.
Dimerco experts requested technical drawings from the customer to ensure the cargo would fit into the freighter at the customer's warehouse. They then followed through with the airlines to book the first available flights once the cargo was packed and ready to go.
