Cargolux on heavy duty

en

Cargolux Airlines successfully transported a 10-meter long shaft with a total gross weight of 43 metric tonnes from Luxembourg to Zhengzhou. It was the largest piece Cargolux has ever transported to its second hub in the heart of China’s Henan province. The transport was organized on behalf of the newly founded HNCA Logistics (Luxembourg) in cooperation with their local partner European Logistics Partners (ELP).

This shipment is the first of its kind to transit through Zhengzhou, opening a new realm of possibilities for future transports like this one. It is also the heaviest single piece of freight that Cargolux has ever delivered to mainland China. As Paul Hoffmann, Director Ground Engineering explains: “While Cargolux frequently transports very heavy cargo shipments, of up to 60 tonnes, throughout its global network, this specific shipment was special as it was the first time that a single piece of cargo weighing above 35.000kg was flown into Zhengzhou airport”.

Cargolux has extensive experience in the art of transporting off-size pieces and it has yet again proved to be a well-versed in the art of jumbo-sized shipments. Delivering very heavy cargo to China has always been quite a challenging undertaking as adapted infrastructures for off-loading were quite sparse upon arrival. Over the past year, however, there has been a solid growth in demand for this kind of transport.

With this shipment, Cargolux has broken new ground in the field of heavy and off-size shipments in the Far Eastern market. Its global presence, trustworthy local partnerships, and dedication to service excellence all contribute to the airline’s leading position in the industry. Shipments such as these ones are the challenges that best reflect Cargolux’s adaptability and versatility to ensure service excellence.

The airline is renowned for its capacity to cater for off-size cargo and has developed a specialized product, CV jumbo, to cover customers’ individual needs. The CV jumbo team has also invested in innovative tool and in-house developments to optimize loadability and ensure safe loading and off-loading processes. The company has also implemented a specialized analysis function at several stations throughout the network to offer quick and professional support for cargo-related inquiries.
