Charter flight takes medical products to war-torn Libya


Cargo Movers, an X2 Cold Chain member, has arranged a payload of medical products to war-ravaged Libya and carried out the ground handling.

The full charter of Fresenius medicals were flown to Mitiga Airport in Tripoli, and it included 217 pallets of medicine, medicals and related materials. The total weight was 90.833 kilo grammes.

Cargo Movers key account manager, Marcel Macke says: “It was a very big deal and very difficult but was handled successfully.”

Beside air and sea freight in general cargo one of the firm’s main topics is the handling of perishables and pharma shipments by air, sea and truck.

The company was founded in 1998 by Robert Mattern and Thomas Heiler, both with lengthy experience and leading positions in the cargo business at Frankfurt Airport.
