ABC’s team was presented with its membership certificate during the 118th IATP Conference held in Indonesia last month. The bi-annual conference provides an excellent platform for discussions on industry trends, maintenance issues, networking and collaboration on all levels.
ABC general director, Sergey Lazarev said: “It is a great honor and achievement to join IATP, one of the industry’s oldest associations with a more than 50-year history. With our vast experience in oversize cargo transportation, extensive route network and qualified team, and stocks of spare parts in several stations, we would be able to support our partners in any AOG situation, guaranteeing cost-effective and timely logistics solutions.
“Our global network and fleet of modern Boeing 747 freighters allow us to respond promptly to all technical challenges, including AOG-related cases, and offer a proven solution IATP members can count on.”
