The shipment handled by our member in Beijing consisted of a Trent 970 engine and a GEnx engine
Beijing Monking Associates Int’l Forwarding Co Ltd, Globalia member in Beijing, China, has transported a Trent 970 engine for Airbus and a GEnx engine for Boeing B787 for China Southern Airlines. The Trent 970 was moved to Hong Kong by an air suspension truck, from where SQ Airlines would move it to Amsterdam via Singapore. From Amsterdam, the engine would be hauled to a German MRO facility. The GEnx engine was shipped to Incheon Airport, Korea, by KE, from where Beijing Monking arranged for air suspension trucking from ICN airport to a local MRO facility.
A crane was required to upload and download the cargo. “We handle both inbound and outbound parts & spares for China Southern Airlines since 2010 and we operate our own air suspension trucks for the transport of engines and helicopters. Aviation and aerospace logistics accounts for 85% of our business. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this significant project was handled flawlessly by our team,” says Jonathan Ma, CEO of Beijing Monking.
Mr Ma further adds, “This shipment was extremely demanding primarily because of the size and weight of the cargo. For example, Trent 970 weighs about 12,500 kg, with a height of 311 cm, while the door height of a B747 freighter is just 312 cm. This is why loading of the shipment required a lot of expertise and attention. Moreover, the value of Trent 970 is over 22 million USD. Considering all of the above, the job was quite a challenging one,”
Congratulations to Beijing Monking Associates for the perfect execution of this project!
