ABC production Airlines (AirBridgeCargo) carried out the transportation of important equipment for the significant client – DB Schenker.
Machines for the production of microarrays were delivered by two ABC charters flights from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Dalian (China) with docking in Sheremetyevo, an airline hub in Russian capital. Each of the Boeing 747 cargo aircraft carried two expensive high-tech vehicles on board.
Valuable equipment was delivered in special containers, providing support for a given temperature regimen to protect the cargo from damage during ABC charter flights. Additional parts of machines for microchips were packed in boxes marked as “Delicate cargo”.
Henk-Jan van Kühlen, ABC General Representative in Amsterdam, said: “AirBridgeCargo” pays special attention to the quality of services provided to customers from the sector of technologies in order to fully ensure the safety and security of the transportation of the valuable, from the moment the goods are delivered to the final point, consignee. Customers can online continuously monitor the movement of their cargo throughout the entire journey. We are grateful to DB Schenker for the trust you have placed on us.”
The head of the DB Schenker air cargo division in the Benelux countries commented: “Safety, speed, and reliability of delivery are the reasons why we chose AirBridgeCargo for these very important flights. Since any violation of the packaging would very likely lead to damage to the product itself, we selected a partner who could guarantee the safety of our cargo on the way, the warehouse, during loading and unloading, as well as during the transit.”
AirBridgeCargo – the leading regular cargo carrier in Russia – transported a unique cargo: the model of the descent part of the Soyuz TM spacecraft. The “TM19” capsule weighing more than 1 ton delivered by RU165 regular flight from Moscow (a/s Sheremetyevo) to Frankfurt by Boeing 747-400ERF aircraft is intended for the Museum of Technology in Speyer (Germany).

The internal structure of the transported layout completely corresponds to the interior of the original product: cosmonaut armchairs, central control panel, life support panel are built inside the capsule, even inner fabric covering is recreated.
