May 30 - Air Charter Service (ACS) has transported two high cube containers, with oil and gas industry materials inside, from Italy to Saudi Arabia.

ACS group cargo director, Dan Morgan-Evans, explained: "The high cube containers only just fitted into the Ilyushin IL-76, with a clearance of less than 10 cm with the doors open."

"The client originally requested an AN-124, as the cargo was 3 m high, but after lengthy negotiations with them and the operator, as well as detailed diagrams, we were able to arrange the loading into the aircraft, saving the client a significant amount of money," added Morgan-Evans.
