February 4 - Blue Water Shipping has transported an Airbus EC120 helicopter from Norway to Malaysia by air.

"The project was challenging because it involved many parties," explained Jesper Nielsen, business development manager at Blue Water.

"The coordination was a comprehensive task in itself and we were working with tight time slots. These kind of projects often include very valuable cargo and leave no room for mistakes."

Blue Water secured the project through its membership of The Aerospace Logistics Alliance (TALA), which the company joined in 2013 and says gives it access to the knowledge and expertise required for airborne transport.

Blue Water's control tower for airfreight in Scandinavia, which supervises all airfreight shipments and ensures high standards are upheld, is located in Copenhagen.
