Crane Worldwide charters AN-225

Crane Worldwide Logistics chartered the world's largest freighter aircraft, the Antonov AN-225, in order to deliver 223 pallets of chemical drums to Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

The cargo originated from vendors in both Malaysia and Singapore. Given a lack of ocean vessels available, Crane Worldwide Logistics said that the AN-225 was the perfect choice to transport the consignment in a timely manner. 

Daniel Cheah, country manager Malaysia at Crane Worldwide Logistic, said: "We handle heavy cargo on a day-to-day basis, always looking for the most cost effective and time efficient solution to present to our clients. In this case, the AN-225 presented the perfect solution and it was a great moment to see this magnificent aircraft land once again in Kuala Lumpur."
