Chinese air purification units flown to Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabian XLP member Glaube Logistics completed a recent air charter from Chengdu to Riyadh. The cargo consisted of 3,600 pieces of air purification units, weighing a total of 110 t, and the plane used was a B747-8F.
The initial challenge for Glaube Logistics was to identify the right mode of transport and aircraft to make sure that the cargo could be moved in a single lot as the shipment was very time sensitive. The company spoke with multiple agents and airlines before choosing Volga-Dnepr Group.
Since its scope of work scope included Ex works (EXW), Glaube Logistics had to coordinate with airport authorities, shipper, origin agent, and the airline to make sure everything was well aligned before the arrival of the flight at the port of loading to avoid any penalty/detention from the airline.
