Published: 5 August 2020 - 4 a.m.

Logistics firm Kuehne+Nagel recently partnered with Volga-Dnepr Airlines on a flight delivering a power turbine from East Midlands, UK to Russia.

The 4.5-ton shipment was safely loaded into Volga-Dnepr’s IL-76TD-90VD aircraft using its onboard crane system, and then expedited to its final destination on time.

“We always were of a high opinion on the quality of Volga-Dnepr Group’s solutions, and this flight was no exception,” said Oleg Makushkin, Head of procurement and airline relations, Russia and CIS, Kuehne+Nagel, Russia.

“At this challenging time it is very important to have a reliable partner who is able to provide a consistent level of service. For us, Volga-Dnepr Group (including AirBridgeCargo, Volga-Dnepr Airlines, and ATRAN Airlines) is such a partner. Together we achieve inspiring results, and expect further development.”

Ekaterina Andreeva, Commercial Director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines, said:

“For over two decades Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Kuehne+Nagel have partnered on projects which have allowed us to innovate and develop new solutions together – pushing the boundaries on what air freight can do. Starting with our AN-124 and IL-76 charter flights, and then progressing to partnership on scheduled operations with AirBridgeCargo Airlines, we work under the alignment of specialty cargo transportation across the globe.

“Having Kuehne+Nagel among VD’s TOP customers is an honor, and we hope for continuous development and quality enhancement between us for years to come.”
