Amidst ground handling disruptions at major Chinese airports last week, AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) found a way to transport a large batch of diabetes treatments together with long-standing partner, Bollore Logistics.
With passenger flights cancelled due to the Delta variant outbreak in Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and other Chinese air hubs, resulting to consequently ground handling failures, Bollore Logistics worked with Volga-Dnepr’s healthcare team to transport 25 tonnes of much-needed diabetes treatment for a major American pharmaceutical firm.
AirBridgeCargo urgently organised a charter flight from Milan to Shanghai with a mix of Envirotainer and DoKaSch containers loaded on the main deck of its Boeing 747 freighter.
“Thanks to aligned relations with the leading container providers, a team of local experts, support of ground handling partners we were able to organize a dedicated charter with one of the life-saving medicines which is as important for us as vaccines and other healthcare products,” Yulia Celetaria, global healthcare director of Volga-Dnepr Group, expressed in a statement.
