Volga-Dnepr delivers component for Boeing 767

A large aircraft production component for a Boeing 767 has been delivered to Paine Field Airport in the US on a Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ An-124-100 under the logistics support agreement between Boeing and Volga-Dnepr Group.

The oversized component, 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 kilogrammes. 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.

Volga-Dnepr Group’s global director for the aerospace industry, Axel Kaldschmidt (pictured above) says: “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 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.
