Freight operator required

Good day

Urgently looking for a freight operator to move approximately 240 tonnes 3 times per week from Nairobi to either Holland, UK or surrounding area. Permits, clearances and ground handling can be organised, just need quotes for a crewed aircraft ASAP. Provisionally this will be until the end of May or halfway through June, with the possibility of extension depending on the viability of the operation. If anyone has a contact that can help please PM me.

Regards

DHL Bahrain would be your best bet.

240T 3 times per week in a clapped out 762 that might have to fly at night for DHL?

I think your best bet are the usual suspects, Ethiopian, cargolux, atlas, silkway, ABC, Martin Air etc. Problem is the market is not in Africa nowadays. Prices might be steep.

It's not actually full - it's what you see because he's not made enough posts to qualify for pms. You may have to find another way -

Just contact one of the global freight forwarders. They will handle that more efficiently than trying to do it yourself.

We have a B747-400F available for 2 rotations a week, quote sent and lower than the market dictates (includes a discount too), but they don't respond. I thought the request was urgent.

I would suggest you contact ACE Freighters-Belgium. They’re part of the Challenge Group which operates two different cargo airlines.

ACE Freighters-Belgium are based out of Liège, Belgium and operate two B747-400F’s. They also have access to two more B747-400ERF’s via a sister company within their aviation holding group.
