Russian logistics provider, JSC Transafe Logistics called in Volga-Dnepr Airlines to meet its short deadline to deliver a complex out-of-gauge shipment of oil refinery equipment.

Containing 26 pieces, the shipment included two out-of-gauge crates transporting a 29,900 kilos compressor and a lube oil unit measuring 331 centimeters in height. The cargo was produced for part of the isomerisation project at the Omsk refinery. Achieving a timely launch of the project was critical for the refinery. Since the compressor represents one of the refinery’s most sophisticated pieces of equipment, JSC Transafe Logistics chose Volga-Dnepr Airlines to guarantee a safe and just-in-time delivery to the plant site.

The entire transit time for the 51 ton shipment took three days from its departure from Tokyo’s Narita Airport to off-loading at the Omsk facility. The logistics project was a triumph for the fast and productive teamwork demonstrated by the equipment supplier, consignee representatives, Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ engineers and JSC Transafe Logistics’ specialists.

One of Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ AN-124-100 freighters and special handling equipment developed by the airline was used for the flight, which was accompanied by representatives of JSC Transafe Logistics.
