Volga-Dnepr transports massive bottle-filling equipment from Munich to Entebbe
Oct 4, 2018: Volga-Dnepr Airlines delivered a Krones bottle-filling machine and additional equipment aboard its An-124-100 freighter for its customer LS International Cargo.
The cargo was loaded in Munich, where Krones’ nearest production facility in Germany is located, to be delivered to Entebbe, Uganda, for Crown Beverages, a leading soft drinks bottler in Uganda. The new machinery aims to boost its production facilities and production volumes to guarantee smooth distribution across Uganda and East Africa.
Volga-Dnepr’s experienced and highly-skilled specialists organized an inspection of the cargo in Munich to find the most suitable loading solution, provide suggestions for cargo preparation for airfreight, and to minimize the time required for airport handling procedures on the day of departure. On the day of the flight, the machinery was loaded into the An-124-100 using special loading equipment and successfully delivered to Entebbe International Airport.
“This project allowed us to showcase our expertise and experience in the provision of dedicated services for the energy and heavy machinery industries. The ideal location of our regional operational base in Leipzig, Germany, with available operations personnel and essential loading equipment, made it possible to save time while organizing on-site visits to Munich for cargo inspection. Accessibility of the airplane at our local operational base in Germany made the costs for positioning the aircraft minimal and the charter flight attractive for our customer price-wise,” highlighted Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial manager of Volga-Dnepr in the UK.
