The delivery was organiSed in partnership with SIS Logistik GmbH from Frankfurt (Germany) to Perm (Russia) and included various transportation modes.
Once trucked from Frankfurt to Cologne, the equipment was loaded onto ATRAN’s Boeing 737-400SF to be transported to Moscow Vnukovo International Airport, where the carrier is based.
With the final destination being Perm, which lies within 1,154 km from Moscow, trucking delivery was chosen as the most preferable option. Volga-Trucks’ experienced team has now completed internal customs transit and safely delivered the equipment to Perm.
“This is a great example of Volga-Dnepr’s Cargo Supermarket concept in action and the first time we have organized internal customs transit in cooperation with Volga-Trucks. Being experienced in developing various schemes for air freight delivery with the usage of the Group fleet, we are now moving one step further to foster multi-modal transportations using the expertise of the specialists within ATRAN and Volga-Trucks company”, – commented Vasiliy Zhukov, Commercial Director of ATRAN Airlines.
Ildar Kamaletdinov, Head of Sales of Volga-Trucks, commented: “Completing another delivery under Cargo Supermarket concept is a great achievement and the result of the teamwork which at first glance seems like an easy task. Although there are hours of work behind the scenes and it is all worth it once you accomplish another multi-modal transportation together with one of the Group’s carrier. We have been enhancing our service quality, expanding our fleet and digital capabilities to guarantee fast, reliable and safe trucking options”.
