Chapman Freeborn demonstrates benefits of global network

Chapman Freeborn’s Singapore office has coordinated the urgent movement of eight pieces of oil rig equipment weighing a total of 18 tons from Perth in Australia to Bergen, Norway, to support an offshore project in the North Sea.

The operation began with a scheduled flight from Perth (PER) to Dubai (DXB), where the global aircraft charter specialist’s UAE team liaised closely with the airline and airport authorities to ensure the cargo passed through the airport quickly, before the load was split for two connecting flights to Frankfurt (FRA).

The consignments were met in Germany by Chapman Freeborn’s Frankfurt team, who reconsolidated the cargo for the final leg of the operation to Bergen (BGO) on a chartered L-100 Hercules aircraft.

Despite severe snow storms in Frankfurt which were affecting scheduled service departures, the charter was successfully dispatched and arrived in Norway almost exactly to schedule.

The client twice contacted Chapman Freeborn to congratulate the company on the well oiled operation.

The charter is the latest in a number of joint operations undertaken by Chapman Freeborn’s cargo team in the past three months which help to demonstrate its ability to assist clients with complex requirements.

Utilising offices in South East Asia, the Middle East, and Europe the company was able to help an Australian client successfully deliver a challenging cargo shipment for a project managed in Scandinavia.

Chapman Freeborn has 32 offices in 22 countries and coordinated more than 5,000 cargo and passenger aircraft charters last year.
