MYOBC operates a time-critical Air Cargo Charter (Boeing 737-800) containing oil & gas equipment from the Port of Rotterdam via Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG Airport) to Abidjan, Ivory Coast (ABJ Airport).
The cargo had a specific deadline to reach an oil & gas project in Abidjan, but there wasn’t any regular cargo capacity available on short notice. Due to the dimensions of the shipment, the only possible option to meet the deadlines was a dedicated air cargo charter solution.
After receiving the request, our operations team immediately analyzed all possible options and requirements to get the shipment as fast as possible to Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Within just 16 hours, our operations team sourced an appropriate aircraft, arranged all necessary permits and delivered the shipment to our client in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
Due to the strict deadlines and the scarce availability of aircrafts nearby, the only possible solution to meet the deadlines was chartering an aircraft stationed at CDG Airport.
When we received confirmation on our client’s side, our operations team operated a secured pick-up truck from Rotterdam to CDG Airport to load the cargo on the Boeing 737 aircraft at CDG Airport.
One hour after loading the cargo, the flight took off to fly directly to ABJ Airport. After 6.5 hours of flying, the Boeing 737 landed at ABJ airport and the shipment was cleared within 1.5 hours after the arrival. Our local partner arranged the last mile to the Port of Abidjan.
Safety, speed and reliability are our number one priorities in cases like this. We ensure the timely delivery by considering safe and secure options, especially when the stakes are this high. In operating time-critical cargo charters like this, we’re happy to be able to operate secure and efficient options.
Our team achieved a prevention of massive supply chain interruption and possible financial consequences by arranging this charter. Sometimes, the cost of a charter aircraft is less than the cost of a supply chain interruption.
In cooperation with our client, we managed to operate this shipment with a total transit time of 16 hours from Rotterdam to ABJ Airport. We got notified by the main engineer that the equipment was installed on the platform within 21 hours from receiving the request. Another great job done by the team, thanks to a streamlined cooperation with all parties involved.
