Conqueror Montreal handles a shipment of a turnkey door-to-door operation for the movement of a flight simulator amidst a heavy snowstorm

The cargo which was shipped from Canada to China was moved by an Antonov 124-100, a long-range aircraft meant for heavy transport

AT&L Canada, the CQR member in Montreal, Canada, has recently moved a cargo consisting of a turnkey door-to-door operation for the movement of a flight simulator from Canada to China. In order to achieve this monumental task, the Aerospace Division of AT&L chartered an Antonov 124-100 which is one of the world’s largest freighters for moving heavyweight and oversized cargo.

As this project was carried out during the dead of winter, it required special arrangements for the storage of the units. “We arranged for 4 double drop trailers (out of gauge) at YMX airport which were waiting for the arrival of the charter. Handling this project was challenging indeed since we had to operate at a temperature below the freezing point in the middle of heavy rain and snowfall,” says Ms. Marie-Christine Gaudreault the Business Development Director of AT&L Canada.

Their Charter Manager’s decision to secure the freight airside proved invaluable as on the day of the landing and loading, Montreal was hit by a snowstorm and the department of transport would have grounded the equipments since OOG orders are not permitted on roads during white-out conditions. Ms. Gaudreault further added, “Thanks to the ingenuity of our Charter Manager and the hard work put forward by our team members, the project was successfully concluded within a week’s time and the shipment reached the customer exactly on time,”

Congratulations to AT&L Canada for a job well done!

Conqueror Porto won a project to ship electrical substations to 3 sites in Rwanda for distributing electricity to the remote areas of the country

This project is part of the government’s plan to bring electrical energy to 70% of Rwanda’s households by 2018

MGC Transitarios, the CQR member in Porto, Portugal, is in charge of the shipments of electrical substations to 3 sites in Rwanda. “The shipments in Rwanda are seriously challenging. The containers will go to Tanzania and from there we have to cross the entire country before entering Rwanda. The roads are not exactly great and for this project the Government and the consignee are improving the accesses, build bridges, roads, and so on as part of the plan,” says Gonçalo Ribeiro, Sales Manager of MGC Transitarios.

The items to be shipped consist of nearly 200 containers. Besides that, MGC will also have to ship out of gauge equipment and some break bulk pieces. Three of the transformers consist of 740 x 295 x 410 cm, weighing 81,000 kg. The other three have a dimension of 635 x 270 x 330 cm, weighing 46,000 kg. 

Gonçalo Ribeiro further adds, “Currently only 25% of Rwanda’s households have power. Of course, like all companies, we are here to make money but it is even better if you can make money and in the process help 6 million people that are still struggling due to lack of electricity.”

Congratulations to MGC Transitarios for successfully carrying out this project and wishing them the very best for the future!
