New World Logistics completed a project involving the round-trip air shipment of a rotor shaft for a steam turbine sent from Vietnam to Japan for repair. The multi-transportation project saw the unit transported from the client's site in Vietnam to Hanoi, flown to Japan by Boeing 747-8F aircraft, delivered to Okayama for repair and then the reverse journey back.
