Restaurants relish ACS delivery

August 25 - Air Charter Service handled 90 tonnes of tomato ketchup sachets requested by a leading fast food restaurant chain last week.

Richard Thompson, president of ACS's North American operation, explains: "The company's restaurants across the North East and South East of the US were running extremely low on ketchup servings and the time spent trucking from California - where the ketchup is produced - would have meant hundreds of restaurants running out completely.

"They contacted us to charter two separate aircraft, but we suggested chartering one Boeing 747 from Los Angeles to dispatch first to Pennsylvania and then onto Georgia, in order to distribute the shipment more easily to the restaurants in the regions.

"We have had a few similar situations in the past, including flying more than two tonnes of meat on Thanksgiving Day to ensure that a chain of steakhouses didn't run out!"
