January 28 - Volga-Dnepr Airlines has transported a high value 'screw' used in the production of paper packaging.
Weighing nine tonnes and measuring 1100 x 210 x 210 cms, the screw was loaded onto one of Volga-Dnepr's IL-76TD-90VD freighters at Kallax Airport in Sweden for its flight to Bordeaux in France. The flight was performed in co-operation with Air Partner's offices in the UK and Sweden.
To expedite the shipment, Volga-Dnepr's load planners produced detailed technical drawings and information for the customer to ensure the transportation went according to plan and without any delays. This resulted in a faster loading process in Sweden and enabled the IL-76TD-90VD to depart ahead of time with its time sensitive cargo.
The shipment was delivered on behalf of one of Europe's leading producers of packaging paper. Its production facility, situated in Facture in Aquitaine, South-West France, specialises in the manufacture of liners for corrugated board.
