Volga-Dnepr Makes Flying All the Fashion


Volga-Dnepr Airlines supported the UK’s £1.1 billion ‘Black Friday 2015’ by ensuring a timely delivery of 120 tons of clothing sold by a well-known brand through its online store.

Between 29 October and 4 November, Volga-Dnepr performed six IL-76TD-90VD flights to transport fashion products from Sweden to the UK. The cargo, ordered at discounted prices on Black Friday, was packed in boxes and loaded onto 120х80х140cm pallets. Each flight delivered 128 pallets with 20-tons of cargo, which were loaded into the aircraft’s hold using forklifts and pallet jacks.

Rinat Akhmetov, Sales Executive at Volga-Dnepr’s London Stansted office, said: “The main requirement of the customer was exact on-time cargo transportation because any delay could lead to disruption in its supply chain. Volga-Dnepr’s experts demonstrated their service capabilities despite adverse weather conditions and this was greatly appreciated by our customer, Panalpina, who thanked the Volga-Dnepr team for their excellent work.”
