June 25, 2015: After successfully transporting hundreds of engines every year, CAL Cargo Airlines announced today the launch of "CAL Engines" - a dedicated product for the safe transportation of airplane engines.
CAL Cargo is applying decades of experience in transporting every size and type of aircraft engine around the world. CAL Engines leverages CAL's fleet of 747-400's original freighters, which can accommodate even the largest engine. And since the CAL team is qualified to deal with dangerous goods, they also service non-purged engines.
CAL provides a safe and protected corridor from point of origin to point of destination, including pickup through ground transportation, ground handling & storage, air freight and delivery via road feeder services. CAL Engines covers every aspect and point in the transport with a dedicated SOP per engine type, including loading, unloading, aircraft and RFS.
For AOG cases, the CAL team offers tremendously fast response times, including "must ride" service, expedited customs clearance and transit time, as well as charter options.
"As an airline, we are especially sensitive to the importance and delicate requirements of engine transport and AOG. Over the past few years our business in the engine segment has increased by an average of 25% per year, testament to our good service and repeat customers" said Eyal Zagagi, CEO of CAL Cargo Airlines. "CAL Engines is the 7th product in our portfolio of solutions for non-standard cargo, all of which embody our slogan 'Challenge accepted'. Our entire operation is built to service non-standard cargo, including specialty products for live animals, dangerous goods, pharma and perishable items, artwork, valuables and other oversize and overweight cargo".
The launch of CAL Engines comes one month after the release of CAL VAL – a proprietary product for the transportation of artwork and valuables.
