ABC transports its 500th aircraft engine in 2018

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has transported its 500th aircraft engine in 2018 and it says demand for its abcXL product expertise continues to grow.

For the first eight months of 2018, the 500 jet engines delivered by the freighter carrier represents a 50 per cent growth year-on-year, which is attributed to the strengthening of the airline’s abcXL product, that it says is underpinned by the shipment management and monitoring solution offered by ABC’s Control Tower.

Transportation of special cargoes, including aircraft engines by ABC is monitored and coordinated by its Control Tower, a team of highly-skilled and experienced personnel working 24/7 to guarantee seamless deliveries.

Monitoring includes all important shipment records; the technical condition of the aircraft, temperature settings and changes, shock sensing data, and weather forecasting, to name but a few.

ABC global director of heavy and outsized cargo, Vasily Zhukov said: “The 500th jet engine is another milestone for ABC and serves as a quantum leap in the development of our abcXL product.

“We have strengthened our position in the aerospace segment of the air cargo market, realigning our procedures, working with trustworthy and reliable handling and trucking partners, and training our personnel to guarantee smooth and intact delivery of aircraft engines.

“We have also introduced the latest 3D modeling software tools to enhance load planning and to minimize the time required for ground handling procedures. This 500th transportation in only eight months of the current year proves once again that our customers recognize the value provided by AirBridgeCargo Airlines, trust our global abcXL team of experts, and appreciate our dedication to meeting every requirement.”
