AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), part of Volga-Dnepr Group, has completed five Boeing 747F charter flights with packaging machines for Covid-19-associated materials from Frankfurt, Germany, to Atlanta in the USA.
Over 200 tons (181.4 tonnes) of machinery was delivered under the National Healthcare Association project in cooperation with Geis Air + Sea to support local production facilities with packaging solutions.
Yulia Celetaria, global healthcare director of Volga-Dnepr Group, said: “This summer season differs from the previous ones as there has not been a single hint of the slow season, at least in the healthcare sector.
“Within two months we were able to support our customer, Radiant in Atlanta, with dedicated charter solutions to ramp up production of antiviral materials in the USA. The success of our joint battle against Covid-19 spread lies not only in the scale of vaccine production facilities but also in the well-timed logistics of the so-called peripheral cargo – packaging, vials, injection syringe, PPE for medical personal and other associated items.”
