Chapman Freeborn's special sledge delivers cost savings

July 19 - The latest of several large movements in recent weeks saw global aircraft charter specialist, Chapman Freeborn Airchartering, coordinate the air transportation of a giant piece of oil and gas equipment from Malaysia to Congo to support offshore

The 27 tonne item was flown from Johor Bahru (JHB) to Pointe Noire (PNR) on an IL-76 aircraft, arranged byChapman Freeborn's Singapore office in close cooperation with colleagues in Italy. 

Chapman Freeborn's technical expertise was utilised by the Italian client to design and manufacture a specialised transport sledge in Singapore so the piece could be loaded into the IL-76 - saving the customer more than USD500,000 on alternative freighter aircraft options. 

The Singapore team also provided airport representation for the charter, supervising aircraft loading using a crane and trailer.
