Case StudyThe Air Partner U.S. Cargo team rapidly responded to a charter request to carry 13 tons (12,940kgs) of ship parts to St. Croix, proposing an efficient and direct air charter solution that met the tight delivery schedule, accommodated the cargo size, and complied with airport requirements.

Loading time-critical ship spares shipment into cargo aircraft
Our Cargo team recommended the L100-30 Hercules as the ideal aircraft for transporting the cargo to its destination. This rear-loading cargo plane can be offloaded using a forklift, making it a perfect fit for the job since the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX) was not currently equipped with a high loader for a more oversized aircraft delivery.
