Volga-Dnepr Airlines has organised the delivery of a crankshaft from Mexico to India on a charter flight for DHL Global Forwarding.

The 38-ton shipment travelled from Apodaca, Nuevo Leon to Mumbai, and was packed into a seven metre long box along with support equipment required for loading.

Within 12 hours of receiving the request, Volga-Dnepr specialists developed special loading and packaging options for the customers.

Volga-Dnepr deputy commercial director of charter cargo operations, Ekaterina Andreeva says: “With our expertise in the transportation of oversized cargo, our specialised 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 optimised 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.”
