AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has transported its 500th aircraft engine in 2018, representing a 50 per cent growth year-on-year, which the carrier attributes to the strengthening of the airline’s abcXL product.
“The 500th jet engine is another milestone for ABC and serves as a quantum leap in the development of our abcXL product,” says Vasily Zhukov, global director, Heavy & Outsized Cargo at AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
“We have strengthened our position in the aerospace segment of the air cargo market, realigning our procedures, working with trustworthy and reliable handling and trucking partners, and training our personnel to guarantee smooth and intact delivery of aircraft engines.”
ABC has introduced the latest 3D modelling software tools to enhance load planning and to minimise the time required for ground handling procedures. “This 500th transportation in only eight months of the current year proves once again that our customers recognise the value provided by AirBridgeCargo Airlines, trust our global abcXL team of experts, and appreciate our dedication to meeting every requirement,” added Zhukov.
The carrier attributed the significant increase to the strengthening of the its abcXL product, which is underpinned by the shipment management and monitoring solution offered by ABC’s Control Tower.
Transportation of special cargoes, including aircraft engines by ABC is monitored and coordinated by its Control Tower, a team of highly-skilled and experienced personnel working 24/7 to guarantee seamless deliveries. Monitoring includes all important shipment records; the technical condition of the aircraft, temperature settings and changes, shock sensing data, and weather forecasting, to name but a few, the carrier said.
Aircraft engine transportation is a technologically challenging process which requires a high level of expertise and years of experience. Having a proven track record for successful engine transportations through its parent company, Volga-Dnepr Group, spanning more than 28 years, AirBridgeCargo is able to call upon best practices for moving such sensitive shipments for customers in the aerospace industry, ABC said.
