Freightworks for the world’s largest cargo plane
Freightworks contracted Freightworks Logistics in Abu Dhabi to complete destination services which included arranging and undertaking the offloading of the AN-225 airside, and onward transportation to the final destination.
The world’s largest cargo plane, the Antonov An-225 Mriya (AN-225), made its first voyage from Ukraine to Abu Dhabi carrying a shipment handled by Freightworks. The six-engine, 600-tonne aircraft, which has twice the wing area of a Boeing 747, was transporting a compressor skid and associated system equipment. There were six pieces of cargo weighing a total of 155 tonnes. “We have a dedicated project team for preplanning the handling of such moves,” said Andrew O’Donnell, Director Projects–Removals and Fine Art, Freightworks.
