Volga-Dnepr transports Boeing 767 component to Seattle factory

Oct 17, 2016: Volga-Dnepr Airlines transported a large aircraft production component for a Boeing 767 to Paine Field Airport, Washington on an AN-124-100 under the long-term logistics support agreement between Boeing and Volga-Dnepr Group.

The oversized component, measuring 552x96x156cms, was transported inside a specialized ocean container to ensure its secured and timely delivery from the production plant in Japan. With additional aircraft parts and other equipment, the total weight of the shipment from Nagoya was 35,000 kilos. The transportation was coordinated by Boeing Supply Chain Logistics.

The cargo was delivered from Japan to Paine Field and onto the nearby Boeing factory in Everett within 24 hours of its arrival at the airport in Nagoya. To expedite the handling process, the container was loaded onboard the An-124 freighter using Volga-Dnepr’s specially-developed loading ramps.

Axel Kaldschmidt, Volga-Dnepr Group’s Global Director, Aerospace Industry, said: “This latest transportation is a further demonstration of the fast and dependable logistics support we continue to offer through our valued partnership with Boeing.”

In July, Boeing and Volga-Dnepr Group strengthened their long and successful cooperation by signing a new agreement for the Group’s subsidiaries AirBridgeCargo Airlines and Volga-Dnepr Airlines to provide long-term logistics support for Boeing Commercial Airplanes and its partners using Boeing 747-8F and Antonov 124-100 freighters. In addition, Volga-Dnepr Group confirmed its order for the acquisition of 20 747-8 Freighters.

Volga-Dnepr Group is the world leader in the unique, oversize and heavy cargo market. It is one of the leading carriers of aerospace cargoes, working with leading aircraft and helicopter manufacturers and operators, satellite companies, and aircraft parts manufacturers. The Group generates over 30% of its revenues from the delivery of aerospace cargoes and to date has completed over 5,150 flights for aerospace customers, delivering some 170,000 tonnes of products.
