Aug 26, 2021

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), part of Volga-Dnepr Group and one of the leaders in healthcare transportations, has found the solution for the transportation of large batch with diabetes treatments for its long-standing partner, Bolloré Logistics, when the latter turned to ABC for assistance amid the disruptions in ground handling operations in major Chinese airports.

With the cancellation of scheduled passenger flights due to the COVID-19 Delta variant outbreak in Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and other Chinese cargo hubs, and, consequently, ground handling failures, Bolloré Logistics has managed with the collaboration of ABC team to transport 25 tons of much-needed Diabetes treatment for one of the biggest American Pharmaceutical companies. AirBridgeCargo has urgently organized a charter flight en-route Milano (Italy) – Shanghai (China) with a mix of Envirotainer and DoKaSch containers loaded on the main deck of Boeing 747 freighter.

Yulia Celetaria, Global Healthcare Director of Volga-Dnepr Group, comments: ‘Even though the world has been slowly coming back to normal life, supply chain disruptions are still taking place. In times like this, we are always here to support our customers with timely and effective logistics solutions. Thanks to aligned relations with the leading container providers, a team of local experts, support of ground handling partners we were able to organize a dedicated charter with one of the life-saving medicines which is as important for us as vaccines and other healthcare products’.

For the first 6 months of 2021, AirBridgeCargo managed to transport over 25.000 tons of healthcare products. Today, Volga-Dnepr’s global healthcare team supports customers across the globe with effective logistics solutions for various cargo, such as vaccines, PPE, laboratory, equipment, MRI/MRT machines, blood samples and beyond.
