ACS TRANSPORT URGENT MEDICAL TREATMENTS FOR CANCER PATIENTS.

1 February 2009

ACS recently chartered two business jets to transport medical treatments to London and Manchester hospitals. Due to time restraints, two aircraft had to be used to transport the packages or radioactive cargo to its destination where it was to be used to treat liver cancer.

The cargo, ready and waiting in Frankfurt at 10am needed to be in London and Manchester by 1pm. Due to the cargo being classified as dangerous goods, the choice of aircraft was limited, but ACS’ knowledge and expertise of the market enabled them to find a solution.

James Cristofoli from the London cargo department worked with the London passenger team, using their knowledge to find suitable aircraft that could get the treatments to the hospitals in the quickest possible time.

This charter required management of simultaneous departures from different airports, two separate operators going to different airports. Both of the flights went smoothly with the cargo being delivered to their respective hospitals on time ensuring that the patients received their treatments. The knowledge and expertise of cargo and passenger account managers at ACS ensures that each and every time the most suitable aircraft is used. ACS cargo staff are extensively trained to work with any cargo including dangerous goods. This ensures no time is wasted and no risks are taken getting your dangerous cargo to its destination on time and in safety.
