Volga-Dnepr Group has continued to facilitate global flows of healthcare products through its Cargo Supermarket concept.

In August, AirBridgeCargo and its dedicated team of pharma experts managed to organize the delivery of 100 CSafe RKN containers with vaccines onboard. Most of the shipments were airfreighted from Amsterdam, the Netherlands to Shanghai, China for DSV, including a record-number liftoff with 41 RKN containers per flight.

Freight forwarder Quantum Logistics, Brazil also recently reached out to the Volga-Dnepr charter team for a solution to ship pharmaceutical-related equipment from Brazil to Puerto Rico.

Due to Volga-Dnepr’s daily global operations, the charter team were able to facilitate Quantum’s request by optimizing on the regional availability of one of the fleet’s twelve AN-124 aircraft. With the size of the AN-124-100 cargo cabin, Volga-Dnepr was able to provide increased charter capacity for cargo otherwise loadable only to one level on commercial freighter aircraft.

Robison Gasperi, Managing Director, Quantum Logistics, said: “The demand just appeared, and it took only one day for Quantum to present the solution and sign the Charter Agreement, thanks to the Volga-Dnepr team who were able to provide a great customer experience. An exclusive fleet of 14 sider trailers was used in the operation, which shows the dimension of the aircraft’s cargo capacity, – with space still left over”.

Yulia Celetaria, Pharma Director, AirBridgeCargo Airlines said: “Within Volga-Dnepr we have prioritized the healthcare industry by making sure we respond to each request with cost-efficient and timely solutions. Not only do these transportations contribute to stable flows of healthcare products, but also serve as a great example of our Cargo Supermarket in action. Our two Group carriers have supported the pharma industry by shaping a unique solution in our commitment to a common goal of supporting global health, which we have been doing for more than 30 years of operations.”
