Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has announced that it has overseen the delivery of 60 t of pipe spooling from Sharjah, UAE to Houston, Texas, US for an equipment upgrade at a gas-to-liquids processing plant.

The air cargo charter specialist’s Dubai office coordinated the movement with the assistance of Magma Aviation, who immediately repositioned a nose-loading B747-400F aircraft to the Middle East for the operation.

Chapman Freeborn’s cargo team was able to make a detailed loadability assessment and provide packaging advice for the consignment, which included six crates of pipes of varying weights and dimensions, with the largest of the pieces measuring over 13 m in length.

Under the supervision of specialist loadmasters, the outsize equipment was carefully transferred from flatbed trucks and onto high loaders using an external crane brought in for the project.
