Cargo carriers anyone?

Anyone know of a UK (or other EU) cargo carrier operating smaller-type aircraft available to charter? Could be a small passenger carrier with seats removed, but would need wider than average door(s) to get our freight aboard. Tricky, I know. A PC-12 would be perfect but lacks a second engine for commercial work

Cobham at Bournemouth, Dornier228 any good?

Though judging from my time with them they would be far to expensive. If a 228 would be OK then their is a German outfit who fly them or perhaps a Let from East Europe could be the machine you need.

I suspect you need a broker to find you the right machine at the right price.

Arcus Air are the German Do.228 operators.

Jota at Southend have "the only remaining King Air B90 Cargoliner operating in the world" !

If the C.406 is big enough, Air-Taxi Charter in Germany and RVL in the UK do cargo charters.

Try RVL at EMA... they have a Cessna Twin Caravan I think and possibly other options too.
