Freight Oil & Gas transport
The freight forwarder client was very pleased to have a professional team on his side, to deal with his challenge of oil and gas equipment needing urgent uplift from the UK to the U.S. The cargo located in the Midlands, consisted of large crates and long pipes and was weighing in at almost 30 tonnes. The experienced account managers of the Air Partner UK Freight department, managed to secure space on a B747 at a good rate for an aircraft to divert on the very next day, from its usual U.S. route ex-Amsterdam into Doncaster. The aircraft landed in Doncaster airport for a short ground time whilst the 22 crates were loaded via the nose door. The freighter then arrived in Huntsville, Alabama, on the Friday afternoon and airside trucks were arranged to collect the parts straight from the aircraft in order for the client to make delivery before the weekend.
