Volga-Dnepr has delivered equipment for the production of liquid medical oxygen using its Il-76TD-90VD.


The 16-tonne cargo was transported from Shanghai, China, to Mineralnye Vody, Russia, for onward delivery to Medical Oxygen’s construction site in Nevinnomyssk.

Volga-Dnepr’s specialists worked in close cooperation with its customer to map out possible delivery options, choosing the most appropriate aircraft type, dealing with terminal handling in the airport of origin and organising last-mile delivery from the airport of destination to Nevinnomyssk.

Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director of Volga-Dnepr Airlines, said: “The experience and expertise of our team enable us to expand our boundaries from airfreight to more complex integrated logistics solutions. In the case of medical equipment transportation, there is no time to lose. Our structured relations with suppliers and in-depth understanding of each supply chain step allowed us to organise this transportation smoothly and effectively, paying particular attention to 120 km last-mile delivery.”
