MAB Kargo brings MotoGP to Malaysia

MAB Kargo has transported 150 tonnes of equipment to Kuala Lumpur in time for the Malaysian leg of the 2018 FIM MotoGP World Championship.

The first flight, MH6493 touched down in Kuala Lumpur with equipment from Tokyo’s Narita airport on 26 October at 03.15h, followed by two flights from Melbourne’s Avalon Airport, MH6406 arriving at 04.10h and MH6410 landing at 13.20h on 30 October.

The three A330-200 Freighter flights carried 150 tonnes of team equipment and support gear, as well as the BMW M3 MotoGP safety car.

The crates were taken to waiting trucks for delivery to the Sepang International Circuit by the MASkargo ground crew.

MASkargo chief commercial officer, Jason Thomas says: “Race equipment charters work on a very tight schedule. All equipment must arrive the destination on Wednesday as setting up of the garages need to be completed by Thursday. Friday and Saturday are practice days for the main event on Sunday.

“As such the team at MASkargo work very closely with the organiser’s logistics team to ensure the seamless movement of these equipment. Our experience in moving race equipment over the years has made us one of the preferred carriers during the circuit.”
