Dangerous Goods Case Study
The military operate watertight schedules, so when our customer needed to move two pallets of dangerous goods, time was of the essence. Other charter companies had proposed bigger aircraft to perform a direct flight, however we suggested another solution to save time and money.
The client’s dedicated account manager utilised his military and government connections to source an aircraft which already had a special licence to move dangerous goods, while recognising that the dimensions of the aircraft were perfect for the volume of cargo.
He then used his network of connections to fast-track permits and exemptions to get the freight in the air within a comparatively short amount of time. In total, the aircraft had four stops and crew changes and the trip itself lasted 17.5 hours, but was still more cost- and time-efficient than the alternative.
We saved our client around €15,000, while making sure that their dangerous goods were securely delivered to their intended destination.
