C4 Logistics are well known for their reputation as outstanding freight forwarders of time critical road shipments. However, unlike most of our competitors, C4 Logistics also boast an operations centre specialising in air transportation – C4 Air.
C4 Air recently coordinated a particularly challenging shipment of three large sheets of aluminium from France to the USA. Weighing in excess of 6000Kg, the unusually heavy shipment was limited in the type of aircraft in which it could travel. The customer urgently needed the shipment to be delivered from door to door within the week.
The operations team at C4 Air began by sourcing an arctic vehicle to collect the cargo from its departure point in France, for onward transportation to Liege airport in Belgium. A direct flight was then organised upon a specialised aircraft from Liege airport to Atlanta, USA. This was followed by onward transport by arctic vehicle for completion of the journey and final delivery to Boeing.
C4 Air team leader Ghislain Darroux said: “At C4 Air we are committed to providing the best quality service for our customers at the most competitive price. We frequently win repeat contracts because our team of air experts take the initiative to source the most appropriate air transport solutions. Our customers’ shipments are always delivered rapidly and always for the lowest possible price, regardless of the complexity of the request. For multi-transport shipments such as this, our customers appreciate the consistency and cost saving that comes from C4 Logistics organising and implementing each individual element. This is why C4’s door to door service remains so popular.”
