Afghanistan made easy

[ November 2, 2012   //   ]

A Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ IL-76TD-90VD freighter delivered diesel generators weighing over 35 tons from East Midlands to Bagram, Afghanistan. The oversized power generators, designed and manufactured by Dale Power Solutions, were placed in special shipping containers and rolled into the cargo cabin directly from the airside using a new wheeled loading system designed by Volga-Dnepr. The system eliminates the need for heavy tooling and third party loading equipment.

The flight to Afghanistan was operated for Transact International, a company providing specialist logistics solutions for military and humanitarian cargo.
