Aerospace Logistics Group (ALG) members Compass Forwarding and Talkcargo partnered to ship a Eurocopter EC135 helicopter from the United Kingdom to the United States this month. The group handled the door-to-door movement of the aircraft from Brighton City Airport in Southern England to Allegheny County Airport in the Pittsburgh area via containerized ocean freight. The project included specialized trucking solutions in both countries, airside coordination of a 50-ton crane, and rapid customs clearance to meet a tight delivery schedule.
The aircraft was delivered to a leading operator of emergency medical helicopters.
“Despite the challenges of COVID, both Compass Forwarding and ALG are continuing to provide the highest service standard to the aerospace industry without interruption,” said Compass’ Director of Aerospace and ALG board member Robert M. Shelala II.
“Another successful global helicopter movement involving the lead client in New Zealand, a helicopter move UK – USA. Talkcargo combined with Compass Forwarding and the Aerospace Logistics Group to work seamlessly with all parties to ensure the delivery of this valuable machinery in an extremely challenging environment,” said Aubrey Inston, Director of Talkcargo and ALG board member. “We thank all those involved and the trust shown by our clients, and the care taken by all our partners.”
