Our client

One of Brazil’s largest airlines, known for offering a wide network of domestic and international flights, serving various destinations inside and outside the country..

The challenge

Valuable cargo and complex transitions: the engine shipping operation in question not only involved one of the largest and most expensive on the market, but also required a complex transition from road to air transportation and then from air to road.

These transitions had to be carried out manually, and the specific needs of the transportation could only be conveyed through a course offered by our client’s engineers.

Our differentiation

Efficient and safe international logistics involves many factors, among them experience in the challenges of the client’s industry, expertise in aerospace cargo handling and the global ability to successfully service and coordinate operations, ensuring that care is the same from start to finish. That’s why we brought together our Aerospace teams in Brazil and Hong Kong to transport a Rolls-Royce Trent 700 for a major Brazilian airline, in a period of only seven days between collection and delivery.
