The 1,520-kilo shipment, which included two Pratt & Whitney engines for the Bombardier Q-300 (PW123), was transported using Atran’s 737-800BCF from Yakutsk to Krasnoyarsk on 8 February. Both engines were reloaded onboard ABC’s B747-8F for further delivery to Amsterdam and trucking to Paris.
The carrier said it took less than four days to coordinate the details of its multimodal solution through Volga-Dnepr’s Cargo Supermarket concept, which covered additional loading control in Yakutsk airport, export customs clearance in Krasnoyarsk airport, documentation processing, coordination of all the departments and constant communication with the customer.
“We understand the whole extent of responsibility when it comes to engine transportation which every time is organized in line with the industry and airlines’ standards, OEM guidelines and IATA DGR if needed,” said Nikolay Glushnev, ABC’s general director.
“For the last four years, we have delivered over 3,000 engines across the globe supporting our customers even during the pandemic under new biosafety rules,” he added.
