Helicopter cargo flight for automotive suppliers

Automotive

Recently, Deutsche Helikopter transported just under 1000 components from Austria to a production site in Germany for a globally renowned automotive supplier. As the client wanted to avoid additional truck journeys to and from the airport, we used a helicopter for this cargo flight and took advantage of its unique landing capability to pick up the materials directly from the client's premises and fly them to their destination.

If time is short due to supply bottlenecks, it is often worth using a helicopter for door-to-door freight charters.

As the cargo flight was due to take place the following morning, the transport helicopter was positioned for the collection the very same day, just a few hours after the order was confirmed.  

Naturally, we obtained all the required landing and overflight permits in advance of the cargo flight. The type AS 350 helicopter picked up the 400 kg air freight directly from the production site in Austria and flew it to the production site in Baden-Württemberg in a double-quick time. Thus, the client saved not only money, but also valuable time.

If you use just-in-time production methods at your factory, the use of a heavy transport helicopter could be the ideal solution in an emergency; for example, if important production materials are needed quickly. In such cases, a helicopter cargo charter is often significantly less expensive than an assembly line stop.
