AirBridgeCargo Airlines finds the solution to transport 38 RAP containers with diabetes treatments to keep uninterrupted healthcare supply chains amid disruptions in major Chinese airports

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.

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'.
