BOEING 747-400: OUT-SIZED GOODS SUPPLIED TO AUSTRALIA IN JUST 5 WORKING DAYS
Thursday 16th January: Enquiry Received and Quotation Provided. An enquiry is received concerning an urgent, large-scale shipment from Doncaster, UK to Perth, Australia. The 26.5 tonneload comprises 4 ‘Hagglund’ all-terrain vehicles and trailers, 4 sets of spare tracks and additional spares in case of vehicle breakdowns.
The vehicles are required by an oil company operating in Western Australia. The company needs to cross marshland to access a damaged pipeline that presents an environmental hazard and requires urgent repair – only the Hagglunds can do it.
The DSA air freight team – comprising the airport, Anglo World Cargo and Servisair – works closely to respond to the enquiry without delay.
Friday 17th January: Goods Received at Doncaster Sheffield Airport. The vehicles arrive at DSA’s transit shed where they are check-weighed immediately. They are then wrapped fully on site for REST (security) procedures to make the shipment ‘known’ for flight.
Monday 20th January: Checking and Packing. ‘Dangerous goods’ checks are completed. The vehicles are then built onto 20ft aircraft pallets and each vehicle is secured with 20 straps.
Tuesday 21st January: Departure from DSA. With the load prepared ready for flight, the load master arrives and confirms that all paperwork is collated, with export licences and customs entries completed. At 20.50, the Atlas Air 747-400 lands at DSA. Servisair then collects the shipment and loads it through the nose of the aircraft using a high loader.
The Atlas Air 747-400 departs DSA half an hour early for its travel to Australia.
Wednesday 22nd January: Arrival in Perth, Australia. After taking a stop in Dubai for crew change and fuel, the aircraft lands in Perth. The vehicles arriveon site that same afternoon, ready to repair the damaged pipeline and prevent further environmental damage.
The goods were delivered on site in Western Australia within 5 working day of initial contact. The case study provides a typical example of the speed, flexibility and service available to specialist air freight customers at Doncaster Sheffield Airport.
